Hide My Ass VPN 2016 Review

Hide My Ass is a VPN provider with a funny name but that provides a very serious service. The service allows people to anonymize their Internet traffic for security.
What Services Like Hide My Ass Do
Hide My Ass is one of many VPN providers that allow users to connect to Internet sites through servers other than their own ISPs. You still use your ISP, of course, but any traffic going to the website you want to visit appears to be coming from a different server entirely. In the case of Hide My Ass, it may be coming from the server in any one of the 122 nations in which this provider has VPN servers situated.

Is this Illegal?

No. There is nothing illegal about using a VPN server. The idea behind the servers is not to accommodate people who want to conduct activities that are illegal. In fact, the point of these types of servers is to provide anonymity as a shield for people who are worried about having their legitimate security compromised online. This is an increasing concern for many Internet users and has led to many different companies entering this field.

An Example

Imagine that you wanted to visit a server but you weren’t exactly sure whether or not it was safe. For example, you may be worried that there is some sort of identity theft or simply some sort of rather intrusive advertising being conducted on the site and you want to make sure that whoever is running the site doesn’t have access to your IP address. This is one of the reasons that people use VPN servers. Using the servers, your request appears to come from a different IP than your own, which means that there is no way for the person who owns the site to figure out where the request was actually made from first.
As a layer of additional security, the services use protocols such as SSL and PPTP to make sure that nobody can listen in on the traffic with a device such as a packet sniffer. If they were to try, they would simply get a bunch of data that was completely unusable to them without the encryption key, which is not communicated over the connection.
Services such as Hide My Ass are popular with consumers. While VPN networks have been in use for many years, they have been mostly used by businesses that were worried about protecting client information or industry secrets. Today, end-users are finding that the services are excellent ways to make sure that they’re not exposed unduly on the Internet in terms of the information exchange or their identity. There are servers located in so many nations that it’s easy to make it seem as if the traffic is coming from any number of places with the services.

How to Start UsingHideMyAss! Pro VPN Service
A VPN is basically a service, so you’re just paying for getting to use their network to access the web like you’re using a safe private network even when you’re on a public network. So, there are 3 steps to start using the HMA! VPN service.

1. Connecting to the HMA! Pro VPN

Protocol Selection

HideMyAss! provides its users with PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN-TCP and OpenVPN-UDP protocols. Connecting to a VPN server through anOpenVPN protocol can be more secure than others, but a PPTP based connection is generally faster. You got to choose whatever that suits your requirements.

2. IP address setting

Ever seen how the hacker appears to be jumping from one location to another in those Hollywood movies? Well, this is how it is done.

3. Schedule IP Address Change

Use this feature to change the IP address that you are using every given unit of time. It’s your choice what time to assign for every IP change.
Your IP will be changed from one of those 125,000+ IPs that HMA! has. This will also help you become more untraceable.

4. IP Address settings in HideMyAss VPN

5. Secure IP Bind Feature

This is an interesting feature for users that don’t want to compromise their privacy under any circumstances. Just in case you get disconnected from the VPN, but you had certain application using the Internet. Your real IP address might get compromised in that case. The Secure IP Bind feature lets you only allow certain applications to only work through the secure encrypted network of HMA! VPN.
Secure IP Bind will Save Your Ass when HMA! fails to Hide it.

Speed Guide

The Speed guide is where you can see the fastest servers for you according to your geo-location. You can test any server from the long list, but I recommend that you only start from the servers that are closer to your location and are of interest to your needs.

7. Speed Guide HMA! guide

There are 3 types of tests for speed you can run for every server. These are, Ping Test, Express Test and Full Test which offer you different levels of accuracy directly proportional to time consumed respectively.

8. Proxy Settings

You can use the Proxy settings tab if you’re connecting to the Internet through a proxy. This is common in schools and offices, otherwise, if you’re directly connected to the Internet, leave the settings as default.

Final Verdict

Whether you’re being censored from visiting websites by your government or you are looking for a safer way to connect to the internet on a potentially vulnerable public network. A HMA! Pro VPN subscription can be amazingly effective for your needs. The only major downside we could find was the lazy support that was repeated many times across the web by a large number of users.

  • It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and
    it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post
    and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or tips.
    Maybe you can write next articles referring to this
    article. I want to read even more things about it!

    • As someone who has never received registered mail I had to Google image that, which gives a P in a circle for the first ten or so entries. Combined with choosing U over K, I had ACUP, which for obvious reasons I think should be accepted as an acceptable entry for “circular re1nnoisg&#822a;.

    • Im grateful for the article post.Much thanks again. Fantastic.

  • I just want to tell you that I am newbie to blogging and absolutely loved this web page. Almost certainly I’m going to bookmark your site . You actually have very good posts. Regards for sharing your web-site.

  • I have been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It¡¯s pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.

  • Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, as well as the content!

    • I have seen lots of anti-global warming videos (either by or supporting leading authorities in this area (even people high up in greenpeace dont support humne-causad global warming)) and if you go back millions of years we are actually a lot colder than the earth has been, the temperature tends to go Warm, then Ice Age, than warm then ice age (note these changes happen over many years). Al Gore is just trying to get votes by pretending to care.

  • Thanks for the different tips discussed on this blog site. I have observed that many insurers offer prospects generous reductions if they prefer to insure a couple of cars together. A significant amount of households own several automobiles these days, specifically those with old teenage kids still dwelling at home, as well as the savings in policies may soon increase. So it pays off to look for a bargain.

  • The things i have observed in terms of computer system memory is that often there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must fit the specs of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no operating-system issues, updating the ram literally will take under an hour or so. It’s one of many easiest laptop upgrade treatments one can think about. Thanks for giving your ideas.

    • That’s a clever answer to a tricky quetison
