YouTube is a popular video streaming website that lets users upload and share video clips worldwide and as it is a streaming site, no download is required. An IP address is used for identification. All websites store your IP address in a log whenever you visit them, so in theory, your browsing activity can be traced quite easily. The easiest way to hide your IP address is to use a proxy server.

Step 1

Find a proxy server on the Internet, some suggestions can be found in the Resources section.
