HideMyAss started as a simple proxy server

  • HideMyAss started as a simple proxy server for anonymous work and hiding IP addresses, but over time it turned into a powerful package for confidential work on the Internet. Today, HMA offers anonymous email, secure file downloads, protection from hackers, viruses and spam, as well as the so – called "Secure IP Binding"-a feature for dynamically assigning IP addresses with powerful encryption for each session.

    Hide My Ass provides powerful connection encryption with masking the user's geographical location. At one time, the service was criticized for cooperating with the authorities – this happened after it helped arrest a member of the Lulzsec group by giving the authorities his IP address (he used HMA). You can treat this practice in different ways, but the service has received a lot of positive reviews and has never been seen in mass leaks or" leaks " of personal data.

    HideMyAss com provides first-class service – just remember the 30-day money-back guarantee. If you have any questions or problems, you can get advice by phone or live chat. HMA has a large community of users who are also ready to share their experience,and on the service's website you can find a large number of reference materials, and in Chinese. Among the disadvantages, it is worth noting that the translation of the official site and materials on it is not very high-quality.

  • HideMyAss torrent test results
    For fans of free things, torrent is a sacred thing, but data privacy when using this service plays a big role.

    We tried to download one of the popular TV shows.


    The file size was about 300 MB, and it took us less than 10 minutes to download it. In addition, the speed of the jump reached its peak of 3 MB / sec.

    On the one hand, the connection to the servers was fairly stable

    Judging by the indicators in the picture, the speed initially reached its peak of 1.7 MB/s, but then there was an instantaneous decline, which lasted about 1 minute. In other words, when using a P2P server, an instantaneous speed drop is inevitable.

  • Using a VPN is the only way to protect yourself while working on the Web if you are in China. Objectively speaking, browsing Internet sites in China without a VPN is quite dangerous. A good VPN will hide your identity and encrypt all your online activities and also protect your data from the eyes of strangers including the government and other third parties.

  • If the VPN is Batman, then the proxy server is Robin. But that does not make it useless. When you need a simple and affordable tool at hand, proxy servers will help to open blocked sites to quench your strange craving for third-rate foreign television shows.

  • @batka said in HideMyAss started as a simple proxy server:


    HideMyAss allows you to surf anonymously, protect your data, access content that is not accessible in your geographical area. HideMyAss can also be used simultaneously on several devices, and is one of the few VPNs offering this service. It simultaneously works on all devices, such as a smartphone, tablet, and even on game consoles.

  • HideMyAss is one of the most popular VPN providers in the world and this is with some justification due to the huge network of servers. However, with some reservations, you should consider using this VPN service.

  • It is interesting
