Change IP Address to the Czech Republic

For Czech citizens who travel a lot, getting a Czech IP address really makes sense. For example many websites based in the Czech republic are inaccessible as soon as you travel outside the country. The growth of regional only websites has grown in the Czech Republic just like the rest of the world. Access is restricted for a variety of reasons, media sites like Czech TV channels do so because of copyright issues, whereas many organisations like online banking block access to prevent remote fraud. It’s ironic that most of the websites are more useful to the traveller when they are away from home anyway.

There is a solution to this, when travelling you can hide your real location by connecting through a secure VPN server. If you enable this virtual connection when you logon, then you can effectively change your IP address to the Czech Republic as long as the server is based there
There are many VPN services which are available online nowadays, however most of them do not provide servers in the Czech Republic. Most have servers in places like the US and UK, for accessing popular media sites in those countries.

Some services however do provide a wider selection of countries to their subscribers. Most of these are the more established services who have built up a larger infrastructure One of the oldest companies in this sector are called Identity Cloaker who are actually based in Prague and therefore have some of the fastest VPN servers that provide a Czech IP address.

Although the connections illustrated in this video show the user changing to a UK IP address, for a Czech IP address you simply select one of the servers based in the Czech Republic. Because Identity Cloaker is based in Prague, the Czech servers are actually some of the fastest and they run very quickly indeed.

Remember when you’re connected to the Czech VPN server, all your browsing and internet experience will be the same as if you were actually there. If you need to get actual local results you should turn off the VPN connection or select the country that you are in. Although using a Czech republic IP address is useful for travellers, security is also important. Ensure that you always enable the VPN before accessing any secure site like email or online banking through a public wifi access point. These connections are notoriously insecure and many of these connections in places like Hotels and airports are monitored by identity thieves who look for login credentials to steal.

When the VPN is enabled all your data is encrypted and protected from prying eyes, ensuring you can safely use secure sites. Identity Cloaker is available in a ten day trial which is perfect for occasional trips although the year subscription is cheaper overall.
