If you want to keep your internet browsing secure, you can do so as there is an option that allows you to hide IP address. Furthermore, Safari browser provides many options so that we can be “less visible” to trackers, cookies and other elements that are collecting information. So in this post we are going to see how to activate all these extra security measures.
IP address can be hidden in different ways
The first way we can hide our IP address is by going to Settings > Safari. in that menu category we have to Find the section called Privacy and security. Here we will look at some options, apart from IP address, that can be used to enhance our privacy while browsing in Safari.
To hide our IP address, we need to go to the “Hide IP address” section. Here we are going to see two options: First, that nothing is hidden. Second, to make that information invisible to trackers. One of the most compromised data that can be obtained with an IP is our location information. Therefore, in front of ad trackers, we will be more secure if we activate this option.
But this option isn’t the only thing keeping our identities more secure on the network. We can also prevent the different web pages we visit from passing on the data they collect from us to each other. If we activate the option “No tracking between sites”, this exchange of information will not take place further.
There is a very interesting option to activate “Block all cookies”, This setting can be very interesting if we do not want a web page to store information on our phone. This can be an advantage if we usually browse many web pages, but it can force us to re-enter all our access credentials in case we need to log in (every time we visit). .
Finally, in this section, there is an option called “fraudulent website warning”, If we have this parameter activated, when we enter a page that the iPhone believes may be compromised in terms of its security, and this may affect us, it will give us a means of prevention. will send a warning message from
Your IP address can also be hidden from iCloud+
In addition to the iPhone settings, it is also possible to hide our IP if we have a subscription to the Apple cloud. In this case, it is an additional layer of security that is already included in the remote storage service itself. The alternative is called private relayand allows us to completely hide any trace of information about your IP address.
To activate this function we have to go Settings > Apple ID (our name) > iCloud. Here we need to look for the iCloud+ category and within it look for the Private Relay option. It is possible that if this is the first time that we activate it, we will be asked to enter our Apple ID password. When we’ve validated ourselves, all we have to do is activate the switch. Alternatively we can change some simple location settings, but the important thing, which is to hide our IP, will already be activated.
