I am trying to mask my IP address from Google and the like. Not for nefarious purposes but just because I don't want Google or anyone else to track me for any reason. I know a VPN will mask my IP but some research online has led me to believe that certain apps like Flash (youtube) can unmask your real IP. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Are there any other web technologies that can do this? Does a good VPN mask DNS also, or can this be circumvented by some web scripts? Thanks.
