What is an IP address?

Every device that is connected to the Internet has a unique IP address (‘Internet protocol’), used for identification and communication. Your IP address tells other computers on the Internet where to deliver the data that you are requesting. It’s like your home address, which allows people to send you letters, and packages.

What can my IP address reveal about me?

Your IP address can reveal a wide range of sensitive information about you.
  • ISP

  • ZIP code

  • City

  • State

  • Country

Where your IP address is shared?

Every time you click something online, it’s like signing a guestbook and your IP address is the signature you leave behind. This includes social media sites, internet forums, chatrooms, and blogs you comment on. All of these platforms can view your IP address.

Who wants to know your IP address?

  • Authorities

    to piece together illegal activities

  • Employers

    to understand where you’re spending time online at work

  • Advertisers

    to target you with relevant products and services

Keep your data private by hiding your IP address

How do I hide my IP address and location?

The simplest and most straightforward way to protect your IP address is to use a virtual private network (VPN) because this anonymizes your online activity using encryption. It also changes your IP address completely, placing your geolocation hundreds or maybe thousands of miles from where you actually are accessing the internet.
