If you need to check what location your internet provider is sharing with the websites you visit, with our IP locator you can instantly geolocate your IP address or any other that you enter manually.
To geographically locate the IP address, you only need to be connected to the internet.
If you use VPN software or connect through a proxy to locate IP address you can also use our tool.
None of the data generated by the IP locator is stored in our system.
How can I hide my IP address so that it cannot be traced?
To anonymously browse the Internet and avoid being located through the IP of your connection, there are two basic ways to do it. The first is to hide IP so that no one will be able to track our presence on the network or access our browsing data and the second is to change IP and browse through another IP address whenever we need to.
Why do I need to locate my IP geographically?
Locating your IP geographically is the best way to find out what data our ISP shares about the location of our connection.
Depending on this location. a website whose URL is ".com" will change to "/es" if we connect from Spain, for example, and some tasks related to the sending of forms will be simplified, as they will be automatically pre-filled with some data such as your country or city, depending on your geolocation IP.
As users with a geolocation IP tool such as the one we offer in Cuál es mi IP, we can manually enter an IP address and find out, for example, from where we have received a fraudulent email, if we have had access before, of course, to the IP address involved
Can anyone find out my home address with an IP geolocation tool?
By using a tool to locate an IP address, you can trace the IP and geolocate it through coordinates on the map, but the specific postal address is never provided. This is because our IP address is not ours, but rather our Internet Service Provider's (ISP's).
So what data can they find out about me with IP geolocation?
When locating the IP geographically. the only information about us that is provided is the country and city from which we are connecting, since the GPS coordinates of altitude and latitude that are shown correspond, in reality, to those of the headquarters of the company that is offering us the Internet connection service.
The reason behind this is that all data related to the actual geographic address of the device used to access the Internet, i.e. our router, is not public and belongs to our ISP, which can only disclose it by court order.
Why are companies interested in locating my IP address geographically?
Information is power and for a company to know from where its potential customers connect is an important advantage to design marketing strategies aimed at the customer profile of a particular geographical area or country.
In addition, in terms of anti-fraud, e-commerce companies can improve card payment security by identifying payment attempts from suspicious IP addresses.
What is an IP address?
An IP address is a special numerical combination assigned to an internet-connected device to be identified on the network.
All intelligent devices need an IP address to access the Internet and interact on the network. Each device connected to the Internet has its own an individual IP address.
When we access the Internet, the servers recognize our device through its IP address, allowing the two-way communication with the recipient. As we are identified with our IP address, the rest of devices can order a return response, without mistake the sender. Making a simile, an IP address would be the address that we use to write on the back of an envelope. This information identifies us as issuers and also as recipients of the return answer.
To make possible this data exchange, the IP protocol was established as a set of universal rules for all the Internet operations. That means that all devices connected to Internet or to a home network, "speak" the same language and they are able to communicate each with the others.
There are two types of IP address, the external IP and the local IP:
• The external IP or public IP is the numerical combination address assigned to us by our Internet service provider (ISP). This public IP identifies us as Internet users when we are connected. If you want to find the IP of your computer, your tablet or your Smartphone, you can find out this immediately by accessing the home page of “What is my IP” or using our speed test service that, in addition to this information, will inform you about the quality of your Internet connection.
• The local IP address or internal IP is the one the router assign to all the devices connected to him and identifies each of these devices, individually, in the home network.
How to locate an IP address?
If you want to know how to find out where an IP address is from, you should know that it is not always easy to find out the IP origin of a connection, because there are different systems to hide the IP. Some users use these systems for security reasons or to simulate, for example, their IP location in another place and thus have access to Internet services not enabled in the place where they are located.
Now, if the user does not use any resource to mask the IP, find out the IP of the computer or any other device connected, for example, to our website, it is as simple as use IP geolocation services such the one offered in “What is my IP?” and you will immediately find out the IP origin of any computer that you are interested in track.
Knowing the IP location of our clients is an advantage when we are designing, for example, our marketing strategies and a good tool, also, to improve network security, as it allows us to locate suspicious IP addresses.
In addition, with the IP geolocation service you can also verify the location that your Internet provider shares about you.
It should be clarified that this location provided by IP geolocation services is never the specific address of our home or where we are located. The data actually are from the operator node in our area that is offering us the connection service to the internet network
Therefore, the geolocation information will be the country and city from where the connection is made, but not the address where the user is located, because this specific tracking of the user address is protected by law and this data can only be provided by court order.
