Now to he business of the day
I will drop the links of extensive tunneling softwares that you can use to hide your online identity however i shall only explain the ones that are
popular and tested by me. First let me list the and note that the list is extensive but not exhaustive if you have a proxy tunneling app you can
drop it in the comment box below.
Your Freedom client
Your freedom is the one i trusted most because of its ease of use, multiple servers and reliability it helps you to Bypass restrictive firewalls and
filtering web proxys. below are the excerpt from their website:
Are you trapped behind a firewall or a filtering web proxy and cannot access some or many web pages or use an application you would like to use or
play a game you would like to play? Is your Internet connection being censored and you would like to stick censorship where the sun doesn’t shine?
Would you prefer to stay anonymous, that your IP address is not logged with every access to someone’s web page? Then look no further, you’ve found
The Your Freedom services makes accessible what is unaccessible to you, and it hides your network address from those who don’t need to know. Just
download our client application and install or just run it on your PC; it turns your own PC into an uncensored, anonymous web proxy and an
uncensored, anonymous SOCKS proxy that your applications can use, and if that’s not enough it can even get you connected to the Internet just as if
you were using an unrestricted DSL or cable connection — just like the firewall suddenly went boom! You can even make your PC accessible from the
Internet if you like. Nearly all applications work with Your Freedom, and so far no-one has managed to block our service completely and permanently
without blocking your Internet access entirely.
Every day, more than 30,000 people in over 160 countries use our service, some because their government would rather not have them exercise their
human rights, some because their school or university feels they are not mature enough to decide for themselves whether playing the odd game
interferes with their studies or not, others because they don’t want traceable IP addresses in every logfile. There are probably as many good reasons
to use Your Freedom as there are restrictive firewalls in the world!
Your first step to an unrestricted Internet access is to register on this web page — all you need
to provide is a contactable email address and a username and a password, nothing else is required. Then download the client application (available
for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and everything else that can run Java apps) and run it — the wizard will guide you through configuring it properly.
Then configure your applications to use your own PC as web or SOCKS proxy or use our transparent OpenVPN mode.

Government level security
The encryption standards we use are trusted by governments world-wide.
Say goodbye to internet limitations such as blocked websites, blocked
it is not free but you will get value for your money
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software
developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow
organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the
like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor’s hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing
to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse
survivors, or people with illnesses.
Journalists use Tor to communicate more safely with whistleblowers and dissidents. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use Tor to allow their
workers to connect to their home website while they’re in a foreign country, without notifying everybody nearby that they’re working with that
Groups such as Indymedia recommend Tor for safeguarding their members’ online privacy and security. Activist groups like the Electronic Frontier
Foundation (EFF) recommend Tor as a mechanism for maintaining civil liberties online. Corporations use Tor as a safe way to conduct competitive
analysis, and to protect sensitive procurement patterns from eavesdroppers. They also use it to replace traditional VPNs, which reveal the exact
amount and timing of communication. Which locations have employees working late? Which locations have employees consulting job-hunting websites?
Which research divisions are communicating with the company’s patent lawyers?
A branch of the U.S. Navy uses Tor for open source intelligence gathering, and one of its teams used Tor while deployed in the Middle East recently.
Law enforcement uses Tor for visiting or surveilling web sites without leaving government IP addresses in their web logs, and for security during
The variety of people who use Tor is actually part of what makes it so secure. Tor hides you among the other users on the network, so the more
populous and diverse the user base for Tor is, the more your anonymity will be protected.
Why we need Tor
Using Tor protects you against a common form of Internet surveillance known as “traffic analysis.” Traffic analysis can be used to infer who is
talking to whom over a public network. Knowing the source and destination of your Internet traffic allows others to track your behavior and
interests. This can impact your checkbook if, for example, an e-commerce site uses price discrimination based on your country or institution of
origin. It can even threaten your job and physical safety by revealing who and where you are. For example, if you’re travelling abroad and you
connect to your employer’s computers to check or send mail, you can inadvertently reveal your national origin and professional affiliation to anyone
observing the network, even if the connection is encrypted.
Protection of Privacy on the Internet
JAP (called JonDo in the scope of the commercial JonDonym anonymous proxy servers – AN.ON remains free of charge) makes it possible to surf the
internet anonymously and unobservably.
Without Anonymization, every computer in the internet communicates using a traceable Address. That means:
the website visited,
the internet service provider (ISP),
and any eavesdropper on the internet connection
can determine which websites the user of a specific computer visits. Even the information which the user calls up can be intercepted and seen if
encryption is not used. JAP uses a single static address which is shared by many JAP users. That way neither the visited website, nor an eavesdropper
can determine which user visited which website.
How it works
Instead of connecting directly to a webserver, users take a detour, connecting with encryption through several intermediaries, so-called Mixes. JAP
uses a predetermined sequence for the mixes. Such a sequence of linked mixes is called a Mix Cascade. Users can choose between different mix
Since many users use these intermediaries at the same time, the internet connection of any one single user is hidden among the connections of all the
other users. No one, not anyone from outside, not any of the other users, not even the provider of the intermediary service can determine which
connection belongs to which user. A relationship between a connection and its user could only be determined if all intermediaries worked together to
sabotage the anonymization. more…
The intermediaries (mix providers) are generally provided by independent institutions which officially declare, that they do not keep connection log
files or exchange such data with other mix providers. JAP shows the identity and number of organisations in each Mix cascade in detail, and verifies
this information by cryptographic means. The users are thus able to selectively choose trustable mix cascades.

One good news is that some of this softwares incidentially or delibrately bypass toll and billing although this is not the purpose they are meant to
serve. For example your freedom, iwp, freegate, ultra surf e.t.c has been used in Nigeria to beat network provider’s toll at one time or the other.
so like i said the list provide here are not exhaustive.
In a related development, if you know you dont want to download and use a tunnel software to annoymize yourself online, you can as well use some proxysite to browse. some of the popular ones include
if you love this post, then share it and like i always say more tutorials are available at our web forum .
Have a nice day and always remember to stay anonymous online.
