While spoofing data a notification bar becomes visible. Hiding the bar can be done by using the --silent-debugger-extension-api flag. Instructions on how to run chrome with flags: https://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/run-chromium-with-flags
Vytal is not a VPN or proxy and will not change your IP address. However, it can be used in combination with a VPN service to obscure your true location.
