If you use the opera web browser then you have to know the following techniques to browse safely,anonymously and securely hiding your ip and all details associated with you and your are the techniques to configure opera so that you surf the internet anonymously

1. Web proxies

This is the simplest way to hide your IP for any
browser you use (including Opera). A web proxy is basically a site that
works as an intermediate between you and the site you want to
see/access. The key point is that the site you access does not see your
IP as the calling source, but the web proxy.

Opera Browser

You can find a lot of web proxies on sites like
What you have to do is to access such a proxy, type in your desired URL
and press Go/Submit. To be sure that it does change your IP, you can
first type and see the IP and location of the proxy.

Usually, web proxies are used to unblock sites like YouTube,
Facebook, MySpace, but they are also useful for posting on forums or
other such activities.

The main disadvantage of web proxies is that they have a short life and get banned, so you have to permanently look for fresh proxies.

There are a lot of sites that list open proxies you can use to hide
your IP. An open proxy is proxy with an address xx.xx.xx.xx:port that
can be used as an intermediate between you and the site you want to see
(the same mechanism as for web proxies).

What you have to do is to go to site like, choose a proxy and then setup up your browser (Opera) to use that proxy. Here is what you have to do.

3. OperaTor

You can try using OperaTor, a bundle that combines Opera browser, Tor and Privoxy. OperaTor will not only hide your IP, but also will leave no tracks about your onlines activities (as every browser does).

4. Use hide ip software

There are a lot of hide ip software on the market. The main advantage of such software is they make it easier.
You don’t have you look for new and working (web) proxies and configure
your browser. They do these tasks for you. If you are interested to
try, you can take a look to our recommended list of read other post I published on such softwares:

Important! Most of these products automatically
change settings for IE and Firefox. For Opera, it may be necessary to
make some more settings.
