Then, select “Create URL“.

4. Copy the newly-created URL

The Grabify IP Logger will take a few seconds to create a new link. Click on “Copy” and proceed with the guide! You will use this link to trick your friend into clicking on it.

5. Send the link to your friend on Instagram

Now, your goal is to make your friend click on the link you send him. I don’t condone manipulation or tricking your friend, but this may be necessary to convince them to click the link.

6. Refresh the IP Logger

Once that person clicks on the link you send them, refresh the IP Logging page. You’ll notice that one result appears in the page’s bottom half.

That’s your friend’s IP address.

What can you do with someone’s IP address?

Knowing someone’s IP address gives you several privileges and access to that person’s digital life.

Here are several things you can do if you know someone’s IP address:

– Find out their geographical location, including the city they live in and possibly even their specific property in that city

– Send them personalized spam based on their searches and interests

– Execute a DoS or DDoS attack against the victim, making them unable to access a network-based service

– Restrict their access to specific services like YouTube, Netflix, and so on

– Discover confidential information about them, including but not limited to a phone number, email address, social security number, birth date, and more

– Sell their data or IP address on the dark web

– Impersonate someone online and frame them for crimes they haven’t committed

– Track their activity online

– Sue them for copyright infringement if they’re torrenting online

You can do many things with someone’s IP address; almost none is legal or ethical.

What can I do if someone knows my IP address?

If you’re afraid of what somebody might do with your IP address, you should change it.

To change your IP address, just reset your router. Nowadays, all internet routers have dynamic IP addresses that change once you restart the router.

Here are several things you can do to protect your IP address in the future:

– Don’t click on weird-looking links from strangers
– Don’t give away personal information online
– Enable all the security and privacy settings on your online accounts
– Use the Tor browser
– Use a VPN – Best Solution

For a permanent solution, I recommend using a VPN. It immediately changes your IP address and doesn’t slow down your internet speed.

With a VPN on, even if someone finds your IP address, they won’t be able to do anything with it because it’s the IP address of the VPN server you’re connected to!

Your real IP address is hidden and private.
