Hello. I'm new to this site so pardon me if I placed this topic at the wrong section in case this topic is not supposed to be here.

Anyways, I have a feeling someone is tracking my online activity. I wanted to hide my IP address but I decided I don't want to install any of the softwares I've googled which are supposed to help me hide my IP address.

So my question is, how can I stop that someone from tracking my online activity? Oh and would a firewall help? We already have a firewall but I doubt that it's the answer to my problem. If I delete my browsing history, would that help?

I want to track that person's online activity too, just to somehow figure out his identity.


Can anyone help?

You can't "hide" an IP address. That's how your computer communicates on the Internet. You can mask it by using a "proxy", but that is no guarantee of privacy.

What specifically makes you think you are being "tracked" on your computer? If we can identify the threat, we might be able to minimize your risk.
