View Full Version : IP Address

I have applied for internships at investment banks using dummy applications and have passed the first round, I am now at the stage which requires numerical tests.

I want to have a go at these tests using my dummy application but don’t want to be detected. I have used different personal details and don’t want to caught out because of my IP address. Does anyone know the best way to make my IP look different, it has to be in the UK.

do you know if you have a dynamic or static modem/router?
or You could spoof it with websites like hidemyass.com

I think I have a dynamic IP address.

I have heard that resetting the router changes the IP Address, but wouldn’t this still give my location away?

Also, I believe that the numerical test opens up in a new window and is downloaded onto the computer. Once the test is complete the information is obviously sent back. Would this rule out the practicability of websites like hidemyass.com?
