Hi rocho - welcome!
I can understand your concerns about privacy. The mods here may be able to suggest things too. One option is to use a proxy-server.
This one here - proxify.com - has been around for ages and is well-regarded. It will hide your IP address. http://proxify.com/
Try this - this may convince you.
Do a Google search for "Shields Up" - that is a very-well-known site run by Gibson Research which allows you to test your security online. I use it all the time. Searching for that give me this URL - https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
Now, go to the Proxify site above, and type in the grc address.
You will see a page of text pop up. It has a "proceed button" (don't press that) and below that is this text -
Your Internet connection has no Reverse DNS
Many Internet connection IP addresses are associated with a DNS machine name. (But yours is not.) The presence of "Reverse DNS", which allows the machine name to be retrieved from the IP address, can represent a privacy and possible security concern for Internet consumers since it may uniquely and persistently identify your Internet account — and therefore you — and may disclose other information, such as your geographic location.
When present, reverse DNS is supported by Internet service providers. But no such lookups are possible with your current Internet connection address (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). That's generally a good thing. "
So, to come here using Proxify, you just type http://forum09.faithfreedom.org
into the message-window on the Proxify site.
I have hidden the IP address Proxify assigned to me above, but **if that IP address is different to your normal one**, then the proxy is working, and you're as safe as it is possible to be on the 'net. Hope this helps......
