How do I check if I've become anonymous?

To check if you've become anonymous you can use one of the numerous web pages created specifically for this purpose. Here are some examples:

http://privacy.net/analyze/
http://www.rental-web.com/~azuma/cgi-bin/env.cgi

https://www.magusnet.com/cgibin/printenv.cgi (secure protocol)

On these pages you will need to look for a parameter called "Remote Address" or "Remote Addr" - this is the address from which the web server receives your request for the page. Without A4Proxy it will be the IP address of your ISP but when A4Proxy is running and has been configured correctly, Remote Addr will display the IP of the proxy server from the database of A4Proxy.

Do not forget to configure your browser correctly. Also make sure that A4Proxy is not in the Direct Connection mode (Options menu in A4Proxy), in this mode anonymous proxies are not used and A4Proxy connects to the sites directly.

Compare the IP and hostname which are shown without A4Proxy (or when A4Proxy is set to Direct Connection, Options menu) and with A4Proxy in anonymous mode.

Important: Remember, that such check pages may do the following:

  1. Set cookies on your system, and show you the results obtained before you set up and started using A4Proxy. Disable cookies in A4Proxy (select "Block All Cookies" in the tray icon local menu) or in your browser (However, some websites do not allow visitors who have blocked cookies)
  2. Track your surfing session and keep the results. If you first decided to check your address without A4Proxy in use, and only then set up your browser to use A4Proxy, you still may get the same results as if no anonymous proxies are in use. In order to really test the difference, you must restart you browser and start browsing from the first page each time you change any settings.
  3. Use Java or Javascript to find out some parameters of your machine. So cookies and Java & Javascript had better be disabled in the browser. Cookies can also be blocked by A4Proxy itself.
