  1. Can someone tell if there is a way to hide my computers IP Address?
    Maxthon is the browser I use, I love it, but I do a lot of business on my home computer and I am afraid of being spied on.
    I heard that there are people that can trace it and know everything you are doing, including online banking and private emails and such.
    Thank you.

    Firstly, there's no foolproof way of making yourself "invisible" online. While Tor can give upto 90% masking, it's often slow and still not safe enough. But there are a few things you can do:
    1) Follow the EFF's top 12 ways.
    2) Refer to the Surveillance Self-Defense manual for complete satisfaction.
    3) For computer specific solutions, look here.
