Online security should always be a priority when you are browsing the Internet. Hackers and malicious websites can get personal information such as credit card accounts, business transactions and other valuable information. A simple way to keep your personal information secure is to change your IP address. Your IP address is your computer's address on the Internet. Changing it every time will keep you anonymous as you surf through the Net.

  • Click on the "Start" button located at the lower left corner on your computer's screen. Click "Run" from the pop-up menu.

  • Type "Command" on the "Run" window to go to the MSDOS prompt window.

  • Type "ipconfig/release" on the MSDOS prompt window. Press the "Enter."

  • Type "Exit" on the MSDOS prompt window. Press the "Enter" button.

  • Launch the "My Network Places" window on your computer. Right-click on the blank space on the "My Network Places" window. Select and click on "Properties" from the drop-down menu.

  • Right-click on the "Local Area Connection" icon. Select and click "Properties" from the drop-down menu.

  • Select the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" by double-clicking on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the list under the "General" tab.

  • Click the "Use the following IP address" from the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window.

  • Type the number "1" on the IP address box until the IP address box is filled with the number 1. Press the "Tab" button on the computer's keyboard to automatically generate a number for the "Subnet mask."

  • Click the "OK" button on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window.

  • Click the "OK" button on the "Local Area Network Properties" window.
