What is my IP address?
The IP (Internet Protocol) address is simply a number that identifies your computer in the Internet network. When a device connects to the Internet a unique number is assigned. It consists of four numbers separated by dots and it looks something like 10.0.0.1.
IP addresses are assigned by Internet Service Providers and can be used to used to identify the user's general address. You can kind of think of it as a street address for the device that connects to the Internet.
It is important to know that the IP address does not identify you, personally, but the location of the device you are using when browsing the Web.
