Frequently Asked Questions

How does the anonymous web proxy work?

The anonymous web proxy is a server that is located between your PC and the website or service you want to use. This way you can avoid letting the website you want to access know your IP address and surf anonymously, since only the IP address of the proxy server is visible for the website, while yours is hidden.
If the proxy server is located in another country, you can also use it to bypass geo-blocking or censorship, i.e. use websites and services that are normally not usable from your country. A proxy can also be useful in networks that block access to certain addresses or content. However, there is no guarantee that a certain website or service can be reached through the proxy.

How do I use the anonymous web proxy?

Simply type the desired Internet address into the address field, select the desired options and press Return or click the button. The desired website will then be loaded through the proxy and you can use it anonymously or, if necessary, bypass regional blocks, censorship or other blocking.

What should I use the anonymous web proxy for?

You should use the web proxy if you don’t want to be tracked, hide your IP address or bypass regional blocking.
If you also want to encrypt your connection, make sure that not only 1 browser tab but all connections on your device are secure and anonymous and/or stream content, we recommend using a VPN, such as Steganos VPN Online Shield.

Can I stream movies, series or TV with the web proxy?

No, for this you need a VPN, e.g. the Steganos VPN Online Shield.

Is the connection via the web proxy encrypted?

No, for this you need a VPN, e.g. the Steganos VPN Online Shield. This encrypts all connections on your PC and ensures that you can use the Internet safely, anonymously and without worries, even in public networks, WLANs or hotspots.

A few words about us

Expert reviews

We found [HMA]’s encryption methods and security features top-notch. The user interface is one of the easiest to use and we chuckled at the donkey animation going stealth every time.

Some of this VPN’s biggest strengths are its user-friendly interface, impressive speeds, and ability to bypass geoblocks (even Netflix’s!).

Katie Kasunic
Technology Researcher, VPNMentor

The list of available server locations offered by HMA is particularly noteworthy because it covers regions often ignored by other VPN companies. It has, for example, numerous server locations across the continent of Africa.

Senior Security Analyst,

Some good-to-know tips…

Will a VPN slow down my connection?

No lie: it’s possible. See, when you use a VPN, before you go to the website or service you want to use, your connection first hops to one of our remote servers. This is not an instantaneous process, so if someone in the US connects to a server in India to visit their local mayor’s website, their data is effectively traveling around the world — twice — to reach their screen: from their router to the HMA server in India, to the mayor’s website that’s likely hosted on a server in the states, then back to the server in India, then back to their router.

If your connection is fast enough, and you connect to one of our high-speed servers, the slowdown will be so negligible you won’t notice it. If your connection is slow, and you connect to one of our more remote servers, there’s likely to be a noticeable slowdown.

Fortunately, we have tools like Lightning Connect and Speed Test that’ll ensure you never have to worry about any slowdown when you’re keeping yourself private online with HMA VPN.

Do you have any rules for your 30-day money-back guarantee?

Just one: please don’t return it with any water damage. Do you know how hard it is to dry out a VPN? We don’t, because it’s never happened before, and we don’t plan to find out.

But no, for real — if you take advantage of our 30-day money-back guarantee, you get your money back, no questions asked. However, if you wait past thirty days, or you re-buy HMA a second time, you can still ask for a refund. But it’s not guaranteed we’ll give you one.

How many devices can I install HMA VPN on?

As many compatible devices as you have. We’re not quite Doom, but you can still run HMA VPN on a shocking number of devices — iOS, Androids, PCs, Macs, routers, Android TVs, Linuxes — and you can install it on as many of those devices as you own. Or borrowed. Or stolen. Or find unattended in a Best Buy parking lot.

But “installing” HMA VPN isn’t quite the same thing as “using” HMA VPN. While it can be installed on any number of devices, you can only have it turned on in up to 5 devices at the same time, or 10 with our friends and family plan. At least, as long as each installation is connected to the same account.

Why does the logging policy matter?

To some people, maybe it doesn’t. To others, it matters a whole lot.

The logging policy can be viewed symbolically: a VPN’s commitment to logging as little as possible is representative of their respect for your privacy and how seriously they approach the issue of protecting your data.

For example, for a lot of people, a VPN logging exactly what time they turn the VPN on or off might not be a matter of much concern: but our unwillingness to do even that hopefully signals just how earnestly we protect the data that is generally viewed as more sensitive. Bearing in mind that it takes considerable effort to reduce logging, and even costs us a not-inconsiderate amount of money to pull off, the value of underlining our commitment to your privacy comes down to illustrating our principles as much as bolstering our marketing. It’s proof that we mean what we say and say what we mean.

But refusing to log data has a practical benefit to our users as well: it means that if our databases should ever be compromised, either illegally via a hack or legally via some sort of police subpoena, the amount of data that could be acquired would be so dismally small and meaningless that neither the hackers nor the police could do anything with it. Thus, we can truly live up to our promise to protect your privacy no matter what you do online while still cooperating with the authorities, as we are obligated to do as a legal entity.

What’s that donkey doing there?

Alright so that’s Jack, our mascot, and we’re afraid he’s a little too clever by half.

So HMA stands for “Hide My Ass”, a moniker we used to go by more consistently and openly before we figured it might be hurting our brand more than helping. And, since donkeys are also known as “Asses”, and we were in the habit of hiding them, well, it seemed like a natural fit for a mascot. But the pun actually goes deeper than that, because our founder was actually a 16-year-old kid named Jack Cator. And what’s another name for a male donkey? A “Jack”. And even though we just go by HMA now, we’re not about to give up on a double-layered slice of wordplay like that, so Jack has stuck around.

He’ll show up on our social media, in emails, in our ads, and of course all across our website. We’re sure you’ll grow to love him soon, either due to his irrefutable charm or Stockholm syndrome. Frankly, we’re not picky which.
