Google Chrome Testing A Feature That Hides Your IP Address From Websites

IP Protection is now being tested in the Canary version of the browser.
Google is testing a new security feature that hides your IP address in the beta version of the Chrome browser, MSPowerUser reports. The feature is simply called “IP Protection” and will basically do what the name suggests, protect your IP address.

The new feature will hide your IP address when you’re logged into Google Chrome, limit what data suspected trackers can see about your online habits, and redirect some content requests through privacy servers instead of sending them directly to websites. It’s shouldn’t be anywhere near as effective as using a VPN, but IP Protection could be a very welcome feature for privacy enthusiasts indeed.

The IP Protection feature is so far only available on the early Canary preview version of Google Chrome. When it will be launched on the regular version of the browser is not yet clear.
