Hide My Ass Web Proxy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thumbs way up for this excellent Firefox addon! I installed it some time ago, and while visiting a site, a popup appeared. I thought this the perfect time to hit the browser HideMyAss button. I was immediately cloaked to any and all the attempts on the site to annoy and track my surfing and activities here.

The HideMyAss.com addon is built for people like myself who do NOT want to be data mined for any reason.

Just a footnote to this review. I also use the other services found on the HideMyAss.com on a regular basis. Excellent services all!

Annoying ads Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1/ Lots of annoying ads.
2/ Some content like captcha disappeared - it makes work impossible.

Just a link, not worth anything at all Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I registered to rate the first worthless add-on Ive downloaded in Firefox. This is a scammy link to their scammy website, which bombards you with adds and is barely functional as a proxy server. yep, its just a link- I guess the bar is set pretty low for what they call an "add on"

I had this service for a total of 5 hours before I asked for a refund. They are NOT a good VPN at all. I unfortunately bought their yearly subscription before being informed. First of all, when I first used it I got disconnected a number of times. I played around with it and emailed them a few times. NOTHING. I turned it off midday. By then, I asked for a refund again and again and again. Still NOTHING. By two days time they responded (to my 6 requests) and told me they'll send it for processing. I had already switched to Private Internet Access by then because of what I read of them, they were a good service. My experience with PIA has been a dream compared to HMA. Any email I send they respond to within minutes usually with wonderful suggestions. I couldn't believe how responsive and helpful they were. And for a fraction of HMAs subscription price. I finally got an email today from HMA (a week later) saying that in those few hours I used over 10 GB of usage (A total of in and out?). I don't see how thats even possible. Anyway, because of that, they are charging me NOT ONE MONTH, BUT TWO MONTHS subscription for 5 hours of USAGE!! I doubt I'm the first this has happened to. I've read a lot of bad reviews of them. I've also read that they'll happily give out your private information, websites you've visited and time stamps to anyone who asks, with or without a court order. Don't use HMA, I recommend PIA for your VPN instead. They respond to every email promptly, they keep absolutely no logs, timestamps of your activity, don't have a bandwidth limit, will issue a refund without these issues. Plus they are torrent friendly and will give you suggestions on which exit servers to use for your purposes. On top of that, they are 60% less expensive than HMA. They don't have a funny name or a cute icon, but thats it. Everything about HMAs service is shoddy and fishy. I'm abashed that they've charged me for two months for having them turned on for 5 hours. I am not exaggerating here. 5 HOURS = TWO MONTHS PAYMENT.

HideMyAss keeps logs to un-hide your ass.

Хорошее дополнение. Правда, у него есть один недостаток. При посещении любого сайта с помощью прокси резко падает скорость загрузки страниц.

Very useful addon, a must-have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a must-have for everyone who wants to secure his online traffic and protect his privacy. Even better is their VPN service, I'm a long-time customer. Tried other services, this one is the best.

I am an avid users of the HMA Toolbar along with my subscription to their Pro Service. I totally agree with this honest review of HMA : http://www.thevpnreviewer.com/reviews/hide-my-ass-vpn-review/

I must say this the service is very reliable and as a frequent traveler it gives me the ability to unblock online tv.... i definitely love the FireFox toolbar which is very reliable too !

very useful as we live in times of more and more censorship of our internet. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The worse thing about censorship is *******. Our governments are wrapping our internet in chains and 'Hide my Ass' help us remove them chains and view the webpages we want to view that have probably been blocked for some stupid reason that's none of the government business anyway. I like this extension because unlike some of the other that do the same thing hide my ass is very simple to use and it does what it says on the tin. Thank-you hide my ass for a great little add-on, that's very useful, the way thing are going with crazy new laws being passed all the time , more and more normal everyday users of the internet will find themselves having to use it.

Hide My Ass! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hide My Ass is good for bypassing blocked websites. This extension whilst simple is effective and enables me to re-route my web browsers traffic to the Hide My Ass proxy with just one click. The only downside to Hide My Ass is that some sites with streaming video content will not function properly, however most of the big sites like YouTube work fine. All in all Hide My Ass is a reliable proxy service without any annoying advertisements.

Good for censorship Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using HideMyAss in Turkey where most of the internet is censored. The service is free and enables me to access blocked websites. My only gripe is that some websites do not render properly and some flash content does not stream. This extension is a good companion for the proxy service, but is not an essential requirement.

Wonderful Stuff !! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great extension for security and privacy of any proxy I have ever seen. It just helped me much from being tracked. As it made safer in many cases like shopping and using credit cards...So I think the developer should be saluted.

My work just started blocking sites with our Firewall, This lets me get to those sites! Works just like I wanted.

Also two things,

One: if you want Private browsing you can use the Firefox private browsing and "hide my ass" at the same time. ;)

Two: People giving one star LEARN how to use a product before giving one star. also learn what a proxy does!

they keep logs and will sell you out so fast your head will spin. not for actual protection. Just stuff like bypassing school or work website banlists.

Actually I take back the part about Open Free proxies, there are, when these are being offered by a company, but in this case when you see these so called big lists of proxies all over the world, they are not the free ones...

Hide My Ass - Hides Half My Screen Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Like the title says it takes up quite a bit of your screen with ads and such.

I'll stick to manually configuring my PROXY!

Good, but just a suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would like to see a "enable in Private Browsing Mode" option for extra security as soon as possible please
