Web Browsers play a very crucial role in surfing the internet. They act as a medium between the user and the internet.
For example, if a user wants to surf the internet they need to have a Web browser for it which will convert all the HTML Document code into a full-fledged working website stored on some server.
Due to this, a user is able to surf the internet and at the same time Police can trace those users ( With the help of IP addresses ) who try to steal some information online or we should say breach in some company’s data center ( also known as hackers ).
what if, we say you can surf the internet privately? Means nobody will be able to trace you.
Yes, it’s possible all you need is an anonymous web browser or VPN service and with the help of it, you can surf the web without being traced.
What is an Anonymous Web Browser?
A Web browser which basically hides the original IP address in order to be more private while browsing the internet.
How does it work?
The Anonymous Web browser basically creates the layer of different IP addresses which makes the user more difficult to trace.
Technically when you search something from Anonymous web browser then the data packets sent from your device to the server are transformed into an encrypted form and then they get bounced to different geographical locations of the world, resulting in, the user almost impossible to trace.
Some Pros and Cons of using Anonymous Web Browsers:
- Keeps all your internet activity private.
- You can search for anything without any hesitation even if it is banned in your country.
- Works slowly as compared to other normal browsers.
- You may get traced if you are not following their guidelines.
