A VPN is the best way to mask your IP
Masking your IP is safe and easy with a reliable, security-focused VPN. Read more about IP masking here. Other popular but unsafe methods to mask an IP address are proxy spoofing, and using incognito mode.
Spoofing your IP with a proxy
A common way to fake your IP is using proxy servers. Their quality can vary, from having adequate security to being downright dangerous. Some of them keep logs, offer outdated or no encryption, and collect your personal information.
Can incognito mode or private mode mask your IP?
Incognito or private mode doesn’t change your IP at all – it simply doesn’t record your browsing history on your device. This doesn’t mean your browsing history is automatically private (your Internet Service Provider can still access it), and you’re still using the internet with your original IP address.
