    Hi,

    I’m looking for advice on the best free way to hide my IP address when sending emails. I currently have a gmail account.

    I use a shared computer so wouldn’t want to download anything that would affect other users.

    Thanks!

    I would be very surprised if that was possible.

    Tor mail & TorGuard are about as good as it gets.

    Thanks, it looks like I’m going to have to pay for Tor Guard. I thought Tor Mail had been taken offline.

    Why. Only reason I can think of is to scam people.

    A VPN sometimes is not enough if you need to register and your email ends in .co.uk or appears to be located in the UK.

    Many sites don't allow disposable email addresses.

    Also VPNs keep records and and can be traced. Believe it or not some people do nothing wrong on the internet, they just like their privacy, like in real life. Why should people put up with being snooped on all the time for no good reason?
