Check your real IP address and other data about you! Our ip lookup will find and show your real public IP address. We reveal not only IP address, but also other metadata that are implied in your browser and device. Your results will appear immediately after you opened this website.
What is an IP address
An Internet Protocol address, commonly referred to as “IP address”, is a unique number assigned to every device that is connected to the Internet. An IP address is like a phone number. It identifies you among other users of the Internet and it let servers know where should they send response data.
The differences between IPv4 and IPv6
Both IPv4 and IPv6 are the same thing, but they are two other versions of the Internet Protocol. Most devices have assigned the older version of the Internet Protocol, IPV6, but with every day IPv6 is becoming more popular.
What is IPv4
IPv4, Internet Protocol version 4, is the fourth version of IP (Internet Protocol) and it is made up of the network identifier, the most important part, and the host identifier which is the rest of the address. IPv4 is faster than IPv6 (look below)
What is IPv6
IPv6, the sixth IP version, authenticate and authorize each device connected to the Internet. Unfortunately, the sixth version of the Internet protocol seems to be slower than the older version (IPv6).
Your browser’s headers
Some metadata (including IP address) is always available for a website that you are visiting. This data is not very sensitive, but anyway you can be tracked if someone knows how to use them. Information such as browser, operating system, request method, referral, cookies, language, caching control, server port, protocol, etc.
I guess that you are not a technical person, so you here you are the explanation.
