Determined by the presence of http_via, via, http_x_forwarded_for, client_ip, proxy_connection, http_proxy_connection, forwarded-for-ip and other headers. An indirect indicator of the anonymization tools usage. The presence of suspicious headers does not affect your anonymity.
Determined by the presence of open proxy, vpn, http/s ports. To prevent this item from being identified, use private dedicated IP addresses on VPN servers. These IP addresses will not have open VPN/proxy ports for connection. An indirect indicator of the anonymization tools usage. The presence of suspicious ports does not affect your anonymity.
Determined by the presence of an IP-address in the torproject database. A fairly accurate indicator of the anonymization tools usage. Potentially affects your anonymity and security, since some of the output TOR nodes may belong to hackers or unreliable owners.
Ping times from client to server and from the server to the client are measured. You can prevent detection by closing ping to your IP address. The ping closure service is available when renting personal dedicated IP address in our VPN. The two-way ping detection does not affect your anonymity.
Time zone discrepancies can occur when you set a time zone of one country, and the VPN or proxy server to which you are connected is located in a different country. Doesn't affect your anonymity. Easily corrected by changing the time on the computer. An indirect indicator of the anonymization tools usage. Doesn't affect your anonymity.
Checking for one of the keywords in the hostname of the IP address: VPS, server, VPN, proxy, ISP and others. If you are using a VPN and want this item not to be detected, select another server in the hostname with no extra keywords. An indirect indicator of the anonymization tools usage. Doesnt affect your anonymity. anonymity_checker__check_method_7 = "Web pages" anonymity_checker__check_method_7_desc = Determined by the presence of a web page when accessing the IP address via http. Indicates a running web server at an IP address. May be an indirect indicator of the anonymization tools usage. Doesnt affect your anonymity.
Checked against a special online database of hosting providers. If the IP address you are using is included in this database, and you are connected to a VPN, then just use a different server.
Anonymity check shows how other websites on the internet see you.
If you have hidden your IP address using a VPN or proxy, make sure nothing else is giving you away.
Only a leak of the real IP address is critical for anonymity.
Everything else: two-way ping, open ports, headers, fingerprint, hostname of the server on the network and time zone are only indirect signs of using anonymization tools. They do not affect your privacy on the internet.
Please note that all such tests are “synthetic.” The fact is that ordinary websites do not check all of their visitors for all the signs that are used in this test. Most often, this is only an IP-address, its country, city. IPv6 and leakage via WebRTC are rarely checked.
The main purpose of this testing is to enable you to eliminate what is possible with the browser and anonymization tool you are using. Some can be easily eliminated using browser settings, others using proxy or VPN settings.
Each item has detailed information with recommendations for elimination. To display, click on the item of interest after testing.
