How do I hide my I.P. Address?
I'm not new to computers, however, I'm a far way away from being good at using them. I want to know how to hide my I.P. Address, from someone, so others can't find it. I heard that people can find I.P. Addresses through Facebook is this true? Anyway I don't want to use a proxy because I don't trust them and heard they don't work anyway. How can I be sure I'm safe?

Hello Teetar, and welcome to Sevenforums!
#1 way to ensure you are safe. NEVER enter personal information (home address, phone numbers, credit card numbers) into any website.
Alternatively, follow #1 above, but make an exception to enter personal information into trusted websites that act as stores, such as walmart, best buy, etc. NEVER enter that info into social sites like facebook, even to buy stuff. Its just not smart.
Anything else is a bit overkill, but you can still do it. Its kinda paranoia, because millions use facebook all with an ip address. Unless you are hiding from the government because you are criminally inclined, there isn't a perfectly good reason to mask your ip address.
Hope this helps
