About this Add-on
The internet has become a popular tool for communication and research. But how do these websites know where to send the information and data that is needed by the end user? That is basically the function of the IP address. It allows the identity and the location of a remote device to be known by another device. Just like sending packages, the sender needs to know the name of the receiver and his complete address to be able to deliver the package appropriately.
By using the internet through your computer or any other device that is available, the network is generating a specific numerical identity for your device that is distinct from any other devices.
Let's say for example, you are on your computer trying to use the internet to do some research. If you want to know how you are able to receive results from your searches, the answer is through your IP address. Through this a remote device or network is able to send the information you needed right away. you may want to opt to use websites such as ipaddresses.info.
Have you known your IP now? If not, then try following the above-mentioned instructions.
