Your IP Address is a unique number that can tell websites (and anyone else who might be looking) a lot about you. It can be used to track you online, determine your physical location, identify your internet service provider and much more. So its not a bad idea to know how to change your IP address.
Changing your IP address is not hard. With tools like SurfEasy VPN you can not only hide your IP address but change it to pretend to be in a different country. SurfEasy lets you move from the US to the UK to Singapore in seconds (much better then getting on plane just to watch BBC). Lets get started:
Step 1: Download SurfEasy

Step 2: Turn it On and Change Regions
