What’s My IP Address?

What’s my IP Address?

Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number devices use to communicate and identify with each other through the internet network, similar to a mailing address. Data and information passes through from one device to another after identifying the IP address' of both sender and receiver. Your IP address can be viewed from the public, allowing others to see where you are, where your device is located, and other information that passes through that address.

Dangers of NOT using PIA

The recent string of security breaches on major corporations by malicious hackers and scammers is a huge cause for concern. However, security breaches can happen to individuals who use the internet because your IP address can be seen by the public. Your data can be logged, monitored, and analyzed by your ISP, which can be used by marketers to aggressively target your computer.

Those who are often on public Wifi are vulnerable to hackers and snoopers who try to obtain your private information as the data are being passed between your computer and its destination. By using PIA's VPN service, your IP address can be hidden so that onlookers cannot obtain your information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you fake an IP address?

Yes, it is possible to fake the IP address shown to websites on the internet by using a VPN. A VPN server works by masking your real IP address with the VPN server’s IP address all the time.

This is how it works without a VPN IP address:

  • When you visit a website, your ISP makes a connection request on your behalf with the destination, but uses your true IP address. In this process, your public IP address is revealed.

This is how it works with a VPN and a "fake" IP address

  • With a VPN server, your online requests are rerouted.
  • The internet request goes from your computer directly to the VPN server and then to its destination on the internet. The destination website thinks that the request originated from the VPN server. In this way, your real IP address remains masked in the entire process.

Note, some websites do blacklist checks and certain fake IP addresses might trigger captchas. This is why it’s important to use a reputable service to change your IP address.
