How Do I Track A Ip Address

Can the police track down your Ip address?

Yes, for most regular users if the police have co-operation from network providers.All IP addresses have an owner. Owners can be tracked. For most cases, the owner assigns an IP temporarily to you when you use their network. If you have a permanent IP address, game over.Otherwise, when you use their network, behind a firewall or not, you will likely already have had some form of agreement/login with the network provider. Your device also has a unique identifier, known as a MAC address, which the underlying network software uses to map the IP address onto, and most providers will keep a log of what IP address are assigned to what MAC address. In fact for most cases IPv6 addresses use part of the MAC address which can be used to confirm your device’s access of a particular service, assuming the police physically have your device.If you are accessing some service (FB, Twitter, Google, etc), that provider will have your IP address, and the “relevant authorities” can usually trace you down from these records, but they will need the co-operation of the network providers to do so. That is where tracing you down falls rapidly apart. If you have been following the news, providers are usually reluctant to give out that information, and will require a subpoena, so regular police without resources will fall over there. Also, networks cross borders, so you will need co-operation from authorities in that other country, as well as the providers.In the UK, the Investigatory Powers Bill - nicknamed the Snoopers' Charter - became law in 2016 which, et. al. required ISPs to retain records of sites visited by their customers for 1 year. This was fortunately successfully challenged and deemed unlawful in Jan this year as it conflicted right to freedom and privacy laws in the EU , and 2 days ago the UK government were given to 1 November 2018 to fix it.Big Brother? That’s it right there!If you are a little more informed, there are free anonymous proxies, or VPNs, which you can hide behind. These will perform the network operations on your behalf, so the IP address the authorities may have could be shared by several thousand other users at the same time. And then there is the dark web…

How do I track somebody's IP Address on...?

Unless you are the server owner, you don't have access to the IP address of posters so you can't track it

Unless the particular bulletin board or forum displays the IP address publicly.

If there is an IP address viewable, you can do some rudimentary tracking with Whois, but that will tell you at best what ISP the poster is subscribed to and perhaps the city. It will NOT be trackable to a street address or an individual's name, unless the individual has posted personal information somewhere else on the net with this IP viewable

All of this assumes that the poster is not using a proxy or anonymizer service to obscure their real IP.

But you have no access to the IP information in the first place unless the server owner is making that public.

How can I track an IP address?

By “how can I track an IP address” I assume you want to know who owns a particular website. Normally, you won’t be able to do that, but you can use Whois to find the owner of a website. For this, you’ll need a Whois service like It’s very easy to use and they have a very large database of 8.9+ million IP Netblocks and 5+ billion historic Whois records.Now, if you are really interested in IP, you can find its geolocation (where the server is physically located). Again, Whois XML Api has an IP Geolocation API that lets you do that. It covers 99.05% IP addresses in use, over 8 million IP blocks and locations and 250 countries and is updated often.Finally, if you already know an IP address, you can find out which domains are hosted on the same address with Reverse IP/DNS API, which has more than 1 billion IPv4 addresses in the database. This can be very useful if you want to find the relation between the hostname and IP.If you don’t want to use a service, you can also find the IP address of a website by going to your Command Prompt (Windws+R and then type cmd to open it).In the Command Prompt, type tracert and then the url of the website whose IP you want to know. Keep in mind that large websites may have a range of IPs. For example, eBay uses IP addresses between to, but what exactly can you do with this once you track an IP address? Is this even legal? Well, the fact that there are services that allow you to track an IPs Geolocation will tell you that this is perfectly legal (and free in most cases).As long as you don’t try to do anything, like attack the host, and the host itself is secure, you can track his IP address all you want, with no legal consequences. Heck, when you buy something from Amazon or eBay, they are allowed to track your IP and you’re not allowed to track theirs? I don’t think so.

Can someone track your ip address from omegle?

NO, the only way he would have or get it is you used Omele Video chat with him.

Omegle keeps a record of the IP addresses involved in every chat. This means that when you start a chat on Omegle, your IP address will be recorded on Omegle's servers, alongside the IP address of the user you are connected to. These records are intended to be used for the purpose of law enforcement, but may also be used to track spammers, and others who pose harm to the site, or violate its rules; or analyzed in aggregate to produce statistical data (e.g., average number of chats started at different times of day). These records are stored for approximately 120 days.

The records Omegle keeps about your chats may be shared with third parties for the purpose of law enforcement; to monitor and enforce compliance with Omegle's rules; or to improve Omegle's monitoring and enforcement processes.

Omegle video chat requires a direct connection to be made between your computer and the other user's computer. To do this, it is necessary to make your IP address available to the other user's computer, although it is not shown to the other user by Omegle's interface. This is a necessary part of how any P2P video chat system functions. If you are not comfortable with this, use text mode (or spy mode) instead.

Omegle can optionally be linked with a Facebook account to enable certain features. Currently, Facebook integration is used for the following purposes:

Omegle can use the list of items you have liked on Facebook to match you with other users.
Omegle provides an option for publishing a chat log to your Facebook account.

The Facebook API allows Omegle to access other information about you, such as your name and other personal details. However, Omegle does not share, save, or make any use of this information.

Omegle does not share personal information about you with Facebook, except in order to perform actions you explicitly initiate. Use of Facebook is subject to Facebook's privacy policy.

You can read more on Omegle's site.


Also he can get it if you use e-mail with him!

Can you track an IP address of a sarahah message?

Im not saying I want someone to do it for me. I want to know if it's possible and how I'd be able to do it. Either that or I have to go to the police and have them handle the situation.

How do the police track down people from their IP address?, like how do they do it?, just wondering?

Simple. IP's are your addresses in the network or the World Wide Web. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide or assign the necessary IP addresses to their clients (thru the clients DNS Servers) and have a list of these IPs. All IPs are unique. So ones a crime has been committed on the web, all the police and FBI have to do is track the IP Address. How? They go to the ISP and ask them who own this certain IP Address in their network. (lets say, my IP is now this IP is unique and is assigned to me. So, once the ISP tells them that it's mine, I'll be caught.


How can I track the IP address of someone who is using my WiFi?

In most cases a Wireless Access Point (WAP) is configured to do DHCP, meaning the WAP is actually handing out the the IP addresses to the hosts connecting to it. It’s a simple matter to log into the WAP & view the DHCP Client listHere’s an example from a cheap SOHO WAP:
