What is a public IP address?

A public IP address is an IP address that is assigned to a device or a network that is accessible to the public and is visible to the internet. It is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet and allows it to communicate with other devices and servers on the internet. Public IP addresses are typically assigned by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and are typically of the form XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, with four numbers separated by dots. In contrast, private IP addresses, such as those used on a home network, are not accessible to the public and are only visible within the local network.

How do I show my IP address?

To show your IP address, you can follow these steps:
On a computer: Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box, type "cmd" and press Enter. In the Command Prompt, type "ipconfig" and press Enter. Your IP address will be displayed next to "IPv4 Address" or "IPv6 Address".
On a mobile device or smart TV: Go to your device's settings app, then look for the "Wi-Fi" or "Network" settings. Your IP address will be displayed next to your device's name or under "IP Settings".

How do I hide my IP address?

To hide your IP address, use a VPN, proxy server, or Tor browser to encrypt and route your internet traffic through different locations. These methods can mask your IP address by routing traffic through multiple servers. Additionally, browser extensions like ExpressVPN, Hotspot Shield, and Hola VPN can also mask your IP address. However, these methods may not be 100% effective and can still be traced by authorities or advanced trackers.

What is VPN and How It Works?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure and encrypted connection between your device and a VPN server, allowing you to browse the internet as if you were in a different location. The process involves downloading and installing VPN software, creating an account, connecting to a VPN server, and encrypting and decrypting data. Using a VPN provides benefits such as encryption, anonymity, security, and access to geo-restricted content. There are two types of VPNs: remote-access and site-to-site. VPNs are used by individuals and organizations to protect sensitive data, access restricted content, bypass censorship, stay anonymous online, and secure online transactions. When choosing a VPN, consider factors such as server locations, encryption methods, speed and reliability, logging policies, and cost.

What are proxy and types?

Proxies are types of servers that act as intermediaries between clients and target servers. There are 10 types of proxies, including HTTP, Socks, Reverse, Transparent, Anonymous, Distorting, High Anonymity, CGI, Open, and Private Proxies. Each type of proxy has its own purpose, such as caching files, filtering content, hiding IP addresses, and distributing traffic. While proxies can provide anonymity, they are not foolproof and can be detected by certain methods.
