This is great info and in context of the subject line Leo has provided all the facts about what is available from just using the IP address. Unfortunately, with the combination of other meta data most web sites can easily connect you with what you may think is an anonymous post and keep a history of all your activities. Every time you connect to a website your IP address is included and available.
Any future communications with that site could easily be connected to the IP address used when you registered. So anytime you sign up for a forum, register your software or make an online purchase that company could create a database with your history including every time you visit. IP cant be traced , i mean to the location …Most of the online tools are mere and near finder..
Some application are there to download,,which is utter useless.. My blog was being used against me in legal situations. I placed an ip tracker on my blog and sure enough I got over hits a day from two people in particular.
I then used an ip blocker called toolator to block the two suspected ip addresses. You can block up to three for free. Its hard to know when Internet stalking becomes an Internet crime. Recently i was using Yahoo email where i listed a few items for sales online. I started communicating with this couple that was interested in a item for sale.
Long story short they started receiving many repeating texts to their cell phone from my account due to an issue with yahoo messenger which i was unaware were being sent — some of which were weeks old. I deleted my yahoo account in effort to stop the texts to their phone. I do not believe they know my real name or anything in detail about me other than my email address.
What would they need to do to find out who i am? Would they have to go to the local police and file a report first or could they go right to a court? I have information showing yahoo was having issues with their sms service and i also have a ticket number for when i closed my yahoo account. I am more worried about what they may be doing behind the scenes that i do not yet know about.
Any information would be helpful thanks. Typically it does involve law enforcement of some sort. Tell me one thing. Let say if someone did review comments about former company in some site. I did the IP check up on that website, you are right about it not being accurate. Even the fact that the IP they got was the city where you got your computer is purely coincidental. Who knows what the rules are for ISP support staff….
I had a relative work for Microsoft in Seattle a few years ago. Small world. I have a question for you.clublavoute.ca/cijoh-conocer-gente-separada.php

If you cannot get a police to get a court order to find outwho a blogger is, yet the blogger alluded that you were party to lying so another party could lie and steal from an organization, could an attorney get that information for me somehow? I have a person who is cyber-stalking me and cyber-bullying me and also harassing me in person and I would lie to know if it was definitely them saying those things about me.
Leo, On twitter, If someone sends me a link as a private message taking me to a ip tracer page, once I click the link, can they access my IP address? I mean, is twitter shadowing my IP address once I leave the twitter domain? This is important especially for people whose identity under threat by its own government.
Thanks for your immediate response. When you click on a link twitter is typically no longer involved. Heck, I got your IP address with this comment. The easiest way in a case like yours is to knock on their door and ask. I just found an email I sent that a whois search revealed exactly what building I was in when I sent the email.
I sent if from a university where I work and the university was listed as the ISP, and the address was listed as the building I was in. May Allah almighty bless you. Please read the article you just commented on.

We cannot help you. You need to contact your local law enforcement agency. I frequently browse twitter, you tube, facebook and prezi primarily for presentations. Any website you visit can know your IP address. If you mean the people whose pages you are visiting on social media sites, then no.
Location data tells a detailed story
ALL websites you visit get your IP address. I did by your even leaving this comment. What they can do with that, as the article points out, is next to nothing unless they have legal authority and a reason. So I purposely left unchanged my Netflix info for the ps4 that was stolen, in hope someone would be stupid enough to try and use it.
It so happens someone did. From a Ps4 someone logged into my netflix account and Netflix recorded the IP address. I had a date, hour and IP address. I then contacted the ISP to see if I had any way of getting the info to transmit it to the police to try and move things along. Of course, for privacy reasons that info cannot be disclosed to a normal civilian like me. Is there nothing else I can do? Its not really just for the ps4 but for the principle and for honor. The ps4 could be broken for all I care, I just want justice. I paid that console with my suckass job and some useless shit just grabbed it.
The resource issue that law enforcement faces is perhaps the single biggest roadblock to progress.
I believe that to be true almost worldwide. Hi Leo, I enjoy reading your info. Like most ,if not all , I get spam, phishing and spoofing. So annoying even though Gmail does seem to recognize most and puts into spam folder but I just get so annoyed when some bathplug copies my own email address as it makes me wonder can the mongrel access my mail.
How Internet detectives, and others, find out where you live
Was I just lucky. What I did was to send to, two of the hosting companies involved, copies of the headers of the fraudulent emails I had got in my gmail account. Is that true? You can, most ips can be traced to a location.
You must have the wits to figure it out. Getting the name of the culprit is a little harder. All the IP address gives you is the location of the server that a person is going through. You would have to get my actual location directly from my internet provider.
As Leo correctly says, that would take a court order. Hey, I want to look for an IP for an email that I have how do you get it when their is no email that has been sent. But just an email address is what you have and thus you can not go to the email header. The thing is that an email address can be used from anywhere. So this will tell you little more than where the server that hosts the may be located. For instance, you can use whois. But it will tell you very little about a person using a Gmail address. Hey Leo, One question, is it possible to know the company name who is using the internet services of the service provider?
One of my neighbours used my wifi and as a result I got an outstanding bill. Is it possible for me to get his IP address?
