Some users don't take privacy seriously while others may actually object to governments and corporations following them. That's where programs like Olive come in handy.
Olive is a freeware anonymizer which allows users to mask their IP address. This can be useful in many occasions like state surveillance or corporations following users online for a number of reasons. The most common usage of Olive though, is to access content that is restricted to certain regions.
With Olive, you may be able to access certain types of content online such as those offered by TV channels, Hulu or any number of different video streaming services.
The application provides you with a number of options like choosing which country and region you wish to appear to be in. Once setup and connected, it will appear as if you are accessing web sites from many parts of the world like the United States, Great Britain, Canada and others.
Unlike anonymous proxy services which often go down without notice, Olive is easy-to-use and provides for an extra layer of security and anonyminity and requires very little in terms of setup. Just install it, register an account and choose which regional IP address you would like to use.
Olive can hide your true IP address and circumvent state censorship.Olive features and highlights:
