Manages Cookies

These tools may prevent or restrict cookies being placed on your computer. Since cookies may be used to track the sites you visit on the Internet, managing cookies can protect your privacy and also limit the amount of online advertising you receive.

Manages Computer History/Cache

These tools prevent information about your online activities from being stored on your hard drive. Or they may periodically purge your "history" or "cache" by deleting this information from your hard drive. While a cache may make it easier for you to revisit a site, many users consider having this information stored about them a privacy risk.

Hides Browsing Information

Prevents Web sites from being able to view your IP address, browser type or operating system while you browse.

Is an Anonymous Internet Service Provider

An anonymous ISP doesnŐt store personally identifiable information and therefore is incapable of disclosing that information to others.
