Hide you IP address
There are a number of IP scrambler programs, including Virtual World Computing’s Cocoon, which reveals you as a generic "Cocoon user" to anyone who's looking. "Cocoon acts as a smart proxy," says Brian Fox, co-founder and CTO. "When a user is logged into Cocoon, only Cocoon's IP address can be seen, not the users’, and cookies can be easily blocked entirely, or just stored in your Cocoon account. According to Fox, Cocoon protects you from identity theft on public WiFi, by providing you a secure, encrypted way to connect to the Web."
