    Hello WSF!

    The plug-in will continue to have a free version and other browsers/Smartphone apps are on the development list. The company is very small but highly innovative and very concentrated on Internet security & privacy.

    They just recently implemented an enterprise-grade virus scanning solution to detect online viruses, malware, Trojans and other threats - this adds an extra layer of protection to further complement a safe-browsing experience.

    In a nutshell, this plug-in has been an asset to many who needed more online privacy, less spam (disposable mailslots), freedom from web-based attacks & malware and is used in nations that filter/block online content.

    Cheers!

    I tried http://ip-check.info/?lang=en with this and flash reveals my real IP.

    Is that just to be expected with a proxy type device like this and flash?
    I mean i'm not going to turn flash off, a good chunk of the web won't work without it.

    NoScript, or FlashBlock will help.

    The following trick may help you:


    On Windows, first, go to %Windir%\System32\Macromed\Flash

    In this directory, create a text file named mms.cfg.


    Open this file with your text editor, and write the following line:
    DisableSockets=1

    This will disable the possibility of flash to connect to websites without using the proxy of the browser.

    So, save the mms.cfg file, close it, and then perform the test test you want, flash (or even javasccript, but not java), enabled:


    Normally, your true IP will not be revealed.
