What is an IP address?

IP address is abbreviated for Internet Protocol address. It is a unique number allotted to any device that connects to the internet. They device may be your phone, laptop or tablet.

IP Version 4 and IP Version 6 are two versions of Internet Protocol that are in use presently. These versions have 2 prime functions to carry which are identification and location addressing. The different between the two is that IP Version 4 results in 4 billion addresses approximately whereas IP version 6 results in 3.4 x 1038 addresses.

An IP address is necessary to go online. It allows the two devices – of sender and receiver – to connect and exchange information. Without it, the two devices won’t know where to send or retrieve information from.

What is My IP address discloses about me

Your IP address exposes pretty much everything there is to know about the location you browse internet from, including:

  • CountryCountry
  • CityCity
  • Province/StateProvince/State
  • ZIP code/Postal codeZIP code/Postal code

The landing websites can reveal even more. They combine your IP address with more information gathered and extracted from metadata, trackers, cookies, owners of website, advertisers and marketers. By doing this, it is easy to build an entire profile about you. These pieces of information are put together along with the websites you visit, the kind of content piques your interest and who you communicate with. After that, you are either targeted for marketing and shown content and advertisement that may suit your liking or your data is sold to the person bidding highest.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are party to even more information. Your ISP knows more in-depth personal information about you than your friend. Being their customer they are aware of your name, address, cell number, bank account details, credit card number, credit history and maybe even more.

Countless countries, including UK and Australia, have ISPs maintain logs of your browsing history as they per a requirement. These browsing activity logs are handed over to multiple government agencies who don’t even need a warrant to acquire such information. Your internet provider can see any website you visit, if it is not HTTPS secured. Websites that are HTTPS secured only exclude the individual pages you visit from being monitored, your domains can still be scrutinized regardless.
