Tip Thursday - Your IP Address

Welcome to Tech Insider’s Tip Thursday, in which we bring you computing tips and computing information you can easily apply at your desktop.

This week: View your IP address.

As a follow up to last week’s post on anonymous surfing, we thought it would be useful to remind you that unless you cloak it, everyone online knows your Internet protocol address.

For example, click here to see it. Or here, which also helpfully informs you which browser you’re using.

You can also try looking it up directly from your computer. Activate the Run from the Start menu, and type in cmd. In the command window, type in ipconfig/all/. Your address will appear.
