Definition Edit

Anonymous technology conceals an Internet user’s IP address from the server hosting the website visited by the user.

Overview Edit

Some, but not all, anonymous technologies conceal the user’s IP address from the anonymizing service itself and encrypt the traffic between the user and the service. Since users of anonymous technologies make requests for web content through a [[proxy server], instead of to the server hosting the content directly, anonymous technologies can be a useful way to bypass Internet censorship. However, some anonymous technologies require users to download software and can be easily blocked by authorities.
