is there anyway to prevent ip grabbing with this?
AdenTerry (1)

when I play games there's always that one guy that threatens me to take my IP, I could care less about these threats and just move on but I want to have a program or something that prevents someone from grabbing my IP if they can do those things if there is a way please send me a tutorial thanks

I recommend using a VPN, however this is a paid service.

And DO NOT use free VPN services. It is likely that these will steal your data.

@tussiez not true. I use free vpns all the time, nobody is stealing my data. You will always find free vpn services, look here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/vpn

@maxina Personally, I wouldn't trust it.

@tussiez If they are on the chrome webstore, and they are one the top of the list, AND they have had many downloads with good ratings, then it is very unlikely it is not a trustworthy service. Just because it's free doesn't really mean anything, you will almost always find free and good services for everything.

@maxina Reviews/user count can be faked easily

It's up to you to use the service

@tussiez Chrome would not fake it -_-

tussiez (1443)

@maxina They run VMs with Chrome on them to get fake installs and then gain fake trust

@maxina that's untrue, in fact chrome is more likely to lie to you to make you believe a product (in this case a vpn) so they can get more data and get you to buy or search up more things, chrome also always listens to you so it can give you items and ads based off of things you talk about or like

@tussiez if you dont trust a software, you can always check reddit for how trustworthy it is.

@AdenTerry C'mon man, that is a very strong statement, google is one of the most biggest companies out there, I highly doubt something like that would happen.

tussiez (1443)

@maxina Just because they're a big company doesn't mean they're not prone to bias/breaches/hacks

maxina (46)

@tussiez Bruh ok what do you use for extra privacy "brave" lol

maxina (46)

@tussiez Since it is used by most of this world, I choose to not agree with your claim.

tussiez (1443)

@maxina Just because the most of the world uses Google doesn't mean it's 100% safe and secure. E.g the IRS website.

A proxy would be your best bet

Easiest way to prevent this: use a VPN. Most of them hide your IP, or have an option to do so.

@SixBeeps i have thought about that but i do not have money to spend monthly on a vpn
