13 Websites That Show Your Public/External IP Address

You public IP address is the address given to you by your ISP. It's the public address that hits web servers when you access Internet pages.

In contrast, the private IP address is the address used within your network.

Listed below are several websites for finding your public (external) IP address. You only need one to find the address, but I've listed several in case one of them is down.



Tip: If you're not comfortable having your public IP address accessible by these websites, consider subscribing to a VPN service, which can mask, or hide your IP address. Then, try one of these websites again and notice that your IP is different!

Please send me a quick email if you find a great website that should be added to this list or if one of the above URLs are down.

However, if you want just one reason, consider that you can download torrents through your web browser without a desktop client, from anywhere you have access to the internet. Another cool thing about Put.io is that if you use it while connected to a VPN service , you're essentially downloading torrents anonymously .
