How to Overcome Anonymox Not Working
Because the causes are different, there are also several solutions. Can customize, or just try one at a time.
#1. Change IP
If the error message “IP Anonymox failed” appears in your browser, it means that the IP used does not match.
For this, it should be easy to overcome because you just change to another IP. Moreover, Anonymox has also provided many IP servers from several foreign countries.
Here are the steps to change the Anonymox IP:
- First, open a browser that has the Anonymox extension installed.
- Then click the extension icon in the taskbar.
- Select the Anonymox extension.
- Change the IP as you wish.
- If so, click Change Identity.
If it still doesn’t work, you need to try again several other IPs until the destination site can be accessed by the browser.

Browsers that have too much-cached data and cookies can affect the extension and cause certain problems. (Know, how to fix if your google chrome slow on your pc).
