Sometimes users of personal computers while working on the network want to remain anonymous and unnoticed. In order to achieve what we want, special programs (sites) have been created - anonymizers.
First of all, an anonymizer should be understood as a means for hiding information about the user's computer, about himself, as well as about the type of network used (IP-address, subnet mask, etc.). The majority of the anonymizer is a fairly simple program that provides the user with the opportunity to log into the Internet completely anonymously (less often, special sites (proxy servers) are used as an anonymizer). Most often, anonymizers are used if a user has been banned on some site, but very important information that needs to be obtained is stored there, or while working on the network on someone else's computer.
What does the anonymizer do?
In order to understand in more detail the principle of action of anonymizers, you should understand the ban procedure. Surely, many people know that usually on the Internet a user is banned by an IP address. If you belong to the category of users who were banned, then this means that you have violated some rule of the site and were blocked precisely by IP.
Anonymizers, in turn, allow you to use almost any IP address. Each program has a set of special tools, among which users select a specific region. After launching such a program, the user again has the opportunity to enter the site (if his account was not banned by mail, etc.).
If the user is going to use the anonymizer program, then he needs to understand its settings. For simplicity, you can use special sites (which on the Internet are no less than such programs). In the case of a website, it is enough to indicate the URL of the page you are going to visit, press a special button to go, after that the connection will already be established, and you will be assigned a different IP.
It is worth noting that anonymizers do not always work the way users want. For example, not all of them allow you to connect to social networks and other resources, where all communication with the site goes through the gateway site. The principle of its operation is that it must competently replace all the links found in the data being sent with its own. As a result, it turns out that either the user cannot enter the site in incognito mode, or its functionality will be significantly reduced (that is, the user will not be able to use all the features and functions of the site).
