Anonymizer Universal launched for PC, MAC, iPhone

{ 1 comment }

The 15-year old company that pioneered the Internet anonymity industry recently introduced its next generation service that now services iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices in addition to PCs and MACs.

Anonymizer Universal creates a secure, encrypted tunnel between the user and its Anonymizer Network to prevent interception of identifiable information, or what’s known as “packet sniffing,” for any Internet-related activity, including email, desktop or mobile browser searches, multi-media downloads, instant messaging or playing online games.

While firewalls and anti-virus software are important components of system protection, those measures do not address threats that occur once data leaves the computer and is transmitted and exposed to the Internet. Anoymizer Universal’s technology protects the user’s identity by replacing his or her personal IP address with a different‚ anonymous IP address each day.

The service’s retail price is $79.99 per year, and comes with a license for both one PC or Mac as well as one Apple mobile device. More information is available at

    I am using 1.0.6 Universal for Mac OS X 10.6 on a Macbook Pro 13″ (Core Duo) Unibody. Netflix ‘To Lie and Die in LA”, “X-Men”, and “Romulus, My Father” (time chunks of 5 to 10 minutes) streamed OK with no hiccups. Be aware that Anonymizer does not allow sending email on port 25 (e.g. Road runner clear text email; still!!!) so if you want to use this service you should get a different email server that support SSL/TLS encryption for sending and receiving (gmail, ms live, etc).
