Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are many option in order to hide your IP depends on the level of your network. if you are using a internet service at your home. you can use those routers which are NAT( network address resolution) enabled. You can also use proxy servers. Firewall is also a good option. if you have a large corporate, ask the MPLS providers for the connection as MPLS provide you the virtual IPs. You can use the VPN above the MPLS plane and also can add more security by enabling encryption.

    Ditto exactly for carlosdl's comment.

    Usually if you want to "protect" an IP address, you have it on an isolated network segment. If you don't want it to be reached by others, don't connect it to an accessible route. But it definitely depends on how you define "protect". It's far too broad a question.

    Have you tried anything yet like a firewall?

    Protected how? In your company, your network administrator can reserve your IP address for you so that it will only be for your system, but, for home use, that would depend on the policy of your ISP. Please explain further on what you mean by protect.

    If you are looking to do questionable things, like use torrents for copyrighted videos or other online activity that you do not want traced back to you then here is my suggestion. Buy a cheap laptop, pay cash, do not give any personal info when buying it (may use it to track serial numbers)  or put any personal info in it. Then only use free public wi-fi or hotspots.

    When use free public wifi/hotspot, they also send a password to access it. After surfing it is better to clear all of history/ logs.
