What Is My IP Address?

United States

a string of unique numbers and full stops that can be used to identify individual computers that are connected to the Internet.

And for good reason. The recent round of cyber attacks on major corporations all around the world is a huge cause for concern. It’s NOT only restricted to those large corporations. As an Internet user, you too are at risk.

At the very least, your Internet Service Provider can log, monitor and analyze your personal data and then sell it on to marketing companies who use that information to bombard you with advertisements. In the worse case scenario, a visible IP address is like an open invitation to malicious hackers.

Websites like ipLocation and IP Adress Tracker take all the hard work out of snooping around someone’s online activity. And not only that, they can easily see which country you are in and actually find your physical IP address location, all the way to your front door.

Virtual Private Network services like SwitchVPN mask your IP address and keep your online activities private and away from the gaze of your ISP and unscrupulous hackers. With a VPN you can visit any website, use any download torrent, and enjoy file sharing sites with the confidence that no one can see what you are doing, or know where you are.
Or in other words, a good VPN service will make you invisible to the World Wide Web.

Services like SwitchVPN redirect your IP through a network of private servers, which make your IP address invisible. They also encrypt your data to provide another layer of security. This way you get unlimited access to the Internet, and you'll be able to get around firewalls and any other censorship tools your country might have in place.

Connect to the Internet in places like coffee shops, libraries, and airports and you'll invariably log on to a free public network, which, plainly said, offers no protection at all and are notorious hacker haunts. But with a VPN you'll be protected everywhere you go, no matter if you're using your phone, laptop, or any other mobile device

Remember the early days of the Internet when everything was fine and fancy-free? Well, those days are long gone. With demands from governments and security agencies for access to private Internet records becoming ever louder, it may only be a matter of time before they can legally access your ISP's data. And that would be a bitter blow indeed for freedom and democracy everywhere.

The use of VPNs has exploded in recent times, and it's easy to understand why. A good VPN costs just a few dollars per month and provides the high levels of protection and privacy that every Internet user needs. Isn’t that amazing?
