    One way to change your IP address is to use an IP changer. When you connect to the IP changer you are creating a tunnel to the changer's server. From a destination website point of view, it appears like you are surfing from that server instead of the one provided by your ISP or your work. They see the IP address from the IP changer's server and not yours.

    Typically users can pick any number of free change IP services out there. However, it's always a good idea to know who is running the change IP service because everything you do goes through their servers. Maybe that's ok if you aren't doing anything with log ins or money, but it's not safe otherwise.
