What Is My IP?

An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing.

No IP Lookup tool is 100% accurate due to many different factors. Some of those factors include where the owner of the IP has it registered, where the agency that controls the IP is located, proxies, cellular IPs, etc. If you are in the US and the controlling agency of the IP is located in Israel, chances are the IP address lookup results will show as Israel.

If you need to direct incoming connections to your computer from the internet, you’ll need your public IP address. Common uses for public IP addresses include setting up a game server, a proxy server, or an FTP server.

Here briefly 3 ways to quickly check your IP Address;

1. The number one and the easiest and perhaps the fastest method is to simply type @My IP@ on google search and voila, You are done, you will see your IP displayed.
2. Type “cmd” and press .↵ Enter to open the Command Prompt. With the Start menu or Screen open, typing “cmd” and pressing ↵ Enter will launch the Command Prompt.
