How to hide your identity when surfing the internet ?

In order to hide your identity from the internet, you must first understand what a proxy server is and how it works. A Proxy or Proxy server is a computer hub; this computer hub connects multiple computers or other networking devices on the internet and processes any internet requests you send to it. Proxy servers are used to hide your identity while surfing the net, filter web content, and screen downloads or uploads.
Usually when you are surfing the net, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will assign to you an IP (Internet Protocol) address. This IP address is used by your computer to identify itself and interact with other computers on the internet. The IP address is like your home or mailing address.
