How do I stop Avast from seeing my IP address?

If you’re worried about Avast seeing your IP address, there are a few things you can do to stop it from happening.

The first thing you can do is change your DNS server settings. You can find out how to do this by going to the DNS tab in your Avast settings and selecting a different DNS server from the drop-down menu.

Another thing you can do is use a VPN. This will encrypt all of your traffic so that Avast (or any other program) won’t be able to see what websites you’re visiting or what data you’re sending and receiving.

There are many different VPNs available, so make sure to do some research to find one that’s right for you. We recommend using Mullvad or NordVPN.

Finally, if you don’t want to use a VPN, you can try connecting through Tor. This will route your traffic through multiple layers of encryption so that it’s virtually impossible for anyone to track what you’re doing online.

Avast SecureLine VPN encrypts your internet connection and hides your IP address, making your online activity private and secure. By doing so, you can browse the internet without having to worry about your identity or personal information being exposed. In addition, Avast SecureLine VPN can also help you bypass internet restrictions and access blocked websites.

If you want to keep your identity and online activities hidden from your ISP, the government, and other prying eyes, then you need to use a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN encrypts all of the internet traffic coming to and from your device and routes it through an encrypted tunnel so that no one can see what you’re doing. Many VPNs also provide additional features like anonymizing your traffic, blocking ads and trackers, and bypassing censorship filters.

One of the most common questions we get asked is: how do I hide my IP address from my VPN? The answer is actually quite simple: by using a public DNS server.

When you connect to a VPN, your computer will usually default to using the DNS servers provided by your ISP. This means that even though your traffic is encrypted and routed through a secure tunnel, your ISP can still see which websites you’re accessing. They may not be able to see what content you’re viewing, but they can still see which websites you’re visiting.

To prevent this from happening, simply change your DNS settings to use a public DNS server such as (Google Public DNS) or 1.1 .1 (Cloudflare). Doing this will route all of your traffic through the VPN’s encryption while also ensuring that your ISP can’t see which websites you’re visiting.
