Everyone who uses internet has an IP address. You can compare it with your home address, but then digitally. Without an IP address you cannot use internet, because the websites you visit will not know where to send the desired information. Your I.P contains a lot of information: this virtual postal address can be used to determine your location and it is also linked to your provider. Many people see this as an invasion of their privacy therefore they choose to change the IP through a VPN service. Keep in mind, however, that your location is approximate, as it uses public databases. Internet providers and government agencies, on the other hand, do have the option of finding your exact address. So, are you maybe wondering: what happens to my IP address and what is actually my IP address? Then keep on reading! If you want to know more about VPN then go to: What is VPN?
