PirateBrowser Review: Is the Pirate Browser secure & really worth it?


  1. Andy
    Like you I tried it out out a couple of days ago and it did change my IP address and showed me based in Germany as opposed to my actual location [the UK]. When I tried to select another country, for example the USA, it would not let me. As for speed it was not too slow, as compared to FF but was noticeably slower.

    The lack of being able to select a new location was a downside as it still kept me within the EU. If you want to hide your IP then give it a bash but if you want to be shown as residing in a specific country you will not have much luck.

  2. It was weird of it to not change my IP address, then I asked a friend to try it as well, and it didn’t work for him either, but I didn’t highlight that issue much because I thought it is a temporary issue. If you want to select a proxy IP address, I would suggest you to go with HideMan (http://www.hideman.net/) but the free version has limited features.

  3. last time I checked the software, it couldn’t bypass iran’s filtering too, but as it seems it doesn’t work anywhere.

  4. it clealry states it is not a tool for annonymity! It is just a browser that wil help you acsess certain blocked sites. It does not always hide your ip because that is not what the browser is for. you are giving a bad review becuase it does not do something, when it is not even meant to anyway.

  5. it is not made to hide your ip it is only designed to help people accses blocked sites. Read what it is before commenting and reviewing stuff you know nothing about, This is the pirate bays words.

    ” it’s not inteneded to be a TOR Browser, while it uses the Tor
    network, which is designed for anonymous surfing, this browser is ONLY
    intended to circumvent censorship. ”

    So please get your facts straight, the browser does everything it is meant to do, what makes u think it is supposed to hide your ip anyway? Where did you read that?

    Now you have given a bad review because of your complete ignorance!! THE PIRATE BROWSER IS NOT DESIGNED TO DISGUISE YOUR IP. IT IS ONLY DESIGNED TO HELP PEOPLE USE BLOSCKED SITES, THAT IS IT. whoever wrote this review and made such an issue out of the browser not hideing his ip is ignorant. That person has just assumed it was supposed to do something they have imagined.
