Today Internet is a tool that is almost unavoidable. This enhanced connectivity presents a grand opportunity to hackers for taking advantage of the ignorance of users.
Due to this reason, large sums of computers are affected simply by launching virus into a network in order to steal information.
To prevent this, we have software that helps us to protect our information known as antivirus and firewall – indeed these are our saviors in this information age.
But why shell out lots of money when you can use the Google translation tool to browse anonymously and avoid being tracked? Here’s how it’s done.
Google Translate is a tool with two uses. One is well known and for which it was created, to translate between different languages (both words and/or phrases).
The second use is for safe navigation, not many know about this secret trick but it is a useful tool for when you don’t want to be reached and ensures a safe browsing session.
It can also be useful in accessing the pages that are restricted by location. Now as we are going to use Google translate as our Proxy server, we need to know what actually a proxy is? Just a little intro here.
Roughly we can say that proxy server acts as a mediator between the server that hosts the web and the thing we are searching. A quick example is given below:
Connecting without a web proxy: Computer > Server that hosts the web
Connection with web proxy: Computer > Proxy Server > Server that hosts the web
Does The Google Translate Proxy Server Hide Your Navigation?
To show its operation, we are going to consider a website that is used for getting our public IP address. Now we are going to perform this operation with and without proxy.
To begin just go to Google Translate and paste or write the website that you want to access via proxy.
Then click on the link displayed in the translated section, which is the link to the website in a hidden mode (Hidden navigation).
Now you can see in the below image that it shows the IP address of the Google, as we just used the google server for our navigation.
In this below image you can see that the IP address had been changed as we are navigating without any proxy. This is the actual public IP address of the computer.
Now let’s try the IP localization, proceed the same way to explore IP address, this website also gives the information related to the ISP ( internet service provider ) and the present location of the IP address.
As you see in the above image, it is giving the location and the ISP that are not ours. As we are using Google proxy (That is the location of google server).
Now in the below image, we can see that it is showing the actual location and ISP of ours this is because in the above case we have hidden our navigation by using a proxy.
In short, we have a free tool that offers the possibility of anonymity on the Internet. It is also an easy and fast tool to use. It also has the advantage that we can use it from any device, browser and/or computer and the navigation is totally safe.
It also has the advantage that we can use it from any device, browser and/or computer and the navigation is totally safe.
