Your IP Address

IP Address FAQ

An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a unique string of numbers separated by periods that identifies each computer using the Internet Protocol to communicate over a network.
You can find your IP address by searching "What is my IP" on Google, or you can use websites that specialize in displaying your IP address, such as the one you are using now.
IPv4 is the fourth version of the Internet Protocol, and it uses a 32-bit address scheme allowing for a total of 4.3 billion addresses. IPv6 is the most recent version, which uses a 128-bit address scheme, allowing for a significantly larger number of unique IP addresses.
A public IP address is the address assigned to your device for communication over the public internet, while a private IP address is used within a private network to communicate between local devices.
While your IP address can reveal your general location and ISP, it does not provide exact personal information. However, it can potentially be used in conjunction with other data to track your online activities.
You can protect your IP address by using a VPN (Virtual Private Network), which masks your real IP address and encrypts your internet connection, making it more difficult for others to track your online activities.
