Hiding your Identity Online (i.e. staying anonymous online)
  1. The first step to masking your identity online is to SIGN OUT OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITES!
    A lot of people forget this step and render the rest of the process moot.
  2. The second step is to delete your cookies. You can do this in most browsers through the options menu (sometimes found in the securities section of your browser settings).
    While you're at it, you might as well delete your cache and history if you are locally protecting your identity.
  3. The third step is to proxify your IP address. Many free sites exist which will provide you a proxy.
    If you are going to rob an atm machine and you have the choice of showing your own face or that of a proxy's, which would you choose?
  4. Nodes are an alternative to free proxies. Node software such as TOR will allow you to access a node in order to browse the web.
    Nodes are any users willing to surrender their computer for use as a proxy. Some services are free, others are paid.
  5. VPNs are the premium choice to anonymous internet surfing. These are usually hosted in far away places, sometimes other countries.
    It's hard to find a good free VPN. There are many paid VPNs available online.

Translation services can act as proxies if you are in a quick bind and do not want to be obvious. Alta Vista Babel fish is a longtime favorite of mine.
