There are different ways to know your public IP address but they vary greatly depending on the operating system (Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android, iOS and etc). The easiest and fastest way to find your IP address is to use a website (specialized or not) that will give you in no time your public IP address. There are people who have the question’ What Is My IP?’, and to find the answer you must go through this article.

How to locate an IP address?

It is also easily possible to geo locate an IP, that is to say, display on a map the country, region, city and address of the device connected to the internet. Be careful, however, to locate an IP address is not an exact science it is thus easy to obtain an IP address which will not correspond to its real geo location by using for example a proxy. The database that correlates IP with physical address may also be incorrect, inaccurate or out of date. As a result, information related to your location may be inaccurate or completely false! There are of course many websites with the same functionality as well as command line tools to locate your IP address (but why be complicated when simplicity is at your fingertips).

What is a public IP address?

IP is an abbreviation that stands for English Internet Protocol. A public IP address is the unique address that identifies your computer (or any other device connected to the Internet such as a smartphone, tablet, or even a connected object). This is a bit like the mailing address of your home, it can locate your computer or another device connected to the internet. Your public IP address is to be differentiated from your local IP address which is the unique connection address of your computer in your local network (internal local network, for example at your work or home). Many web sites and online digital services use the IP address to geo locate or even restrict their functionality to certain regions of the world. For example, YouTube’s online video giant uses your IP address to determine whether or not you can access certain video content that is restricted to a particular country. Fortunately, it is possible to bypass this filtering (read on this topic the tutorial to play a YouTube video blocked in your country).
