    [GUIDE] [HOW-TO] edit your browser referer and user agent identity for privacy

    Hi,

    If you are like me then you'll generally want to hide your originating source of a location when browsing a website and this could be for numerous reasons such as;


    1. Privacy
    2. Being naughty
    3. General lulz


    For this tutorial I'll be using two addons for Google Chrome which are ScriptNo and Referer Control. Script-No is a nice extention that allows you to disable third party javascripts and more but for this we are also using it for the built in referer edit that is included and the user agent spoof. We will be using Referer control to white list websites that require the originating domain to be the referer so you can login/post and more (such as RaGEZONE).

    First, download ScriptNo from the url. Once installed simply go to options and set the following;


    • Referrer Spoof: (Custom)
      - insert any url you would like such as FBI — Homepage
    • User-Agent Spoof:
      - Select whichever browser and OS you want to mask as.
    • SAVE


    Once this is done you can now visit a website such as this one. Inside you'll find it will display your IP address , User-Agent (which is now spoofed) as well as the http referer you set as indicated above.

    Now, the most important part is that a lot of websites will not allow you to login to their services if the originating domain does not match (for security reasons) and to fix this problem we will simply install Referer Control as linked above. Once installed simply add the following for a website that has a limitation on logging/access and posting (such as rz which I'll use for this example)


    • Add to site filter "http://*ragezone.com"
    • Click custom and add "http://ragezone.com"


    DONE! It's that simple. The referer from RaGEZONE will originate as ragezone and thus allowing you to post here and login without no issues. For other websites simply update the url as indicated above. The * indicates a wildcard so use it when appropriate.

    It's that simple.

    Have fun.

    I wrote this with the idea in mind that a person is behind a proxy or a vpn such as Hostkeys VPN service (Which I am using atm).

    For Firefox users, they can use the Add-On called User Agent Switcher.

    https is great but only secures that connection from you -> website.

    For privacy everywhere I use my neighbours internet. But still , nice tut. You can also use VPN such as ProXPN , although it wont hide your user agent it sure will hide from where are you browsing.
