There are several ways to hide or change your Ip address in Kali Linux

  1. Using proxychain
  2. Using Vpn
Free VPN and proxy reduce your site speed. If you want to consider something serious [scan], then use premium VPN or proxies. I am serious it will take 1-2 minute to load a simple website.

Proxychains to Hide IP

In this method, you change IP address by going the number of proxy as wish as you want. Kali has a proxy file you have to edit your working proxy manually. Proxychain is working by three ways.

Static: by default it is static. In this system is go all proxy. If you there is one dead proxy then your system will not work.

Dynamic: In this way, is a proxy is dead system leave and check all other proxies. Dynamic is much better than static change.

Random: it selects random proxy from given proxies. Different for different URL. In the case of any proxy is dead then it selects another Proxy.

Ok, Let’s see how can you do it.

Open your terminal and type following commands

cd /

[it will change directory from user to root]

nano /etc/proxychains.conf

[it will open /etc/proxychains.conf file] as shown in the screenshot. proxychains.conf

Now scroll down go to end here you can add own proxies.

Open google type free socks5 proxies [ keep in mind socksk5 proxy is better than HTTP and socks4]

Here I find the site here is enough number of proxies. To add proxy go to the terminal back again [ proxychains.Conf file] add proxy as shown in the screenshot. The first protocol then proxy after that port. Add proxies as wish you want to add. Here I have added only three and saved the file.

VPN vs Proxy
As I told you above VPN is the better way to protect your data. But free VPN is very slow. I have recently check news about free Vpn keep logs [ see what you search on the internet] and leak your information.
