Your IP Address
Go ahead, it's all yours.
TraceMyIP.org is an advanced and private server-side website visitor IP tracking, surveillance, website statistics and analytics service application. It delivers unique features that are not commonly available on website IP address data acquisition platforms. It is built on a proprietary SaaS software technology developed from the ground up by a computer software development facility originally based in Massachusetts, USA.
The implementation has been featured on news networks for its innovative technology.
The service has been in operation since 2008. It's designed to assist web publishers to learn about IP Tracking, online security, their personal and business websites' operational status, website visitors, and outcome of the efforts that establish their presence on the Internet.
The platform provides extensive information about website visitors, their likes, and favorite content that is being monitored. It does this without revealing an actual visitor's personal identity or breaching the privacy associated with a personal identity.
TraceMyIP.org is a spam-free service. The users receive no spam messages via email from the service and each account's information remains strictly confidential. The only email messages delivered to the end-users are instant and scheduled visitor email alerts and account-related reporting and billing alerts. All of these are entirely controlled by the users of the service.
TraceMyIP.org is utilized Internationally and is appreciated for its simplicity and superior application tools. The capabilities allow detecting visitor hits activity on individual site pages and embedded web elements. The online IP tracking software is capable of reliably differentiating web bots, spiders, and referrer spam data from other traffic sources that relate to the IP statistics capturing. Visitor location tracking, mapping, and browsing history of each individual visitor based on an IP address or a computer ID is another distinctive feature of the service. All web visitor traffic is captured in IPv4 format while translating IPv6 addresses via tunneling from IPv6 to IPv4 format.

How does TraceMyIP compare to other website statistics systems such as Google Analytics, Webalizer Stats, Statcounter & AWstats for example?
TraceMyIP.org is a unique platform with some features not available in other web visitor tracker systems. Particularly, it allows you to conduct long-term surveillance of individual visitors and observe their IP address changes in real-time. Instead of tracking by IP address, you can track by a computer ID. TraceMyIP.org also provides you the tools to control the delivery of the website content, protect contact forms, links, and other documents on a geo-location level, control file, and document downloads, and schedule specific pages to be shown at specific times or to specific visitors. The tools that are available to you will help protect website content and prevent secure content from being served to a narrowly defined audience. Scheduled and instant email alerts allow for conducting long-term surveillance of specific individuals. Never miss a visit and get email notifications delivered on an hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
My website serves content to European Union member states and is subject to the EU GDPR regulation. What can I do to achieve better compliance that requires me to get each visitor's consent before collecting full statistics?
TraceMyIP.org provides one of the most complete sets of tools to achieve full EU General Data Protection Regulation compliance. The EU GDPR tools allow webmasters to configure how the system tracks the visitors depending on their GEO location. The Cookieless Tracking mode allows webmasters to get website visitor information without utilizing tracking cookies on all devices, including iOS, Android, and Windows tablets, phones, laptops, and desktop computers. Although the Cookieless Tracking solution makes it easier to achieve the goal, you may still need to give your website visitors an option to opt out of being tracked. Please refer to EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) directive.
Currently, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affects the following European Union member states:
Does TraceMyIP affect the bandwidth usage with my website hosting provider (both ipv4 and ipv6)?
Just like a "green car" vehicle technology approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency, TraceMyIP.org does not substantially increase the bandwidth usage of your website hosting provider services since the actual website statistics analysis software and computer data storage is hosted on TraceMyIP.org dedicated servers. The entire website traffic analysis and hosting of visitor IP address tracker gadgets is performed by the CPU power grid installed on TraceMyIP.org dedicated server computer infrastructure. Furthermore, by utilizing TraceMyIP.org and disabling your own server-side website's dedicated server statistics software such as the Webalizer or cpanel's AWStats statistics software, it is feasible to save bandwidth and CPU processing resources, thus speeding up the website speed.
Would TraceMyIP.org code trigger anti-spam and antivirus security or privacy alerts on my website visitors' computers?
TraceMyIP.org is strictly a website visitor IP checker and tracker software that does not utilize any malicious code base that may trigger online security or privacy alerts anti-spam or antivirus software. Anti-spam and antivirus software looks for certain viruses or malicious digital coding signatures and patterns and intercepts them before they're downloaded onto the end-user's computer hard drive or placed in the dedicated space range of the random access memory. TraceMyIP.org does not contain such code patterns; therefore the anti-spam and antivirus security alerts are not triggered.
What is an IP address?
An IP address, short for Internet Protocol address, is a unique numerical identifier assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. It serves as a way to identify and locate devices within a network or on the internet.
There are two main types of IP addresses: IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) and IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6). IPv4 addresses are written as a series of four numbers separated by periods (e.g., 192.168.0.1), while IPv6 addresses are longer and written in a hexadecimal format (e.g., 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334).
IP addresses play a crucial role in routing data packets across the internet. When you connect to the internet, your device is assigned an IP address by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or network administrator. This address allows other devices to send data to your device and enables you to communicate with other devices on the internet.
Why does a computer IP address change from time to time and what is my IP address type?
Every time people establish a new connection with their broadband Internet Service Provider's (ISP) account either using a wired home/business connection or a wireless connection, the ISP's network assigns an individual Internet Protocol to them. This is necessary for a computer to connect to the web so that other web servers could provide the data exchange facilities.
There are two types of IP address assignment - static IP and dynamic IP. Most broadband service providers use dynamic IP address allocation and offer a static Internet Protocol allocation at an additional fee. Static IP assignment is often required for device tracking devices such as those used in IP address surveillance and those that require a permanent network address.
How is IPv4 different from IPv6?
The IPv6 address format is the successor to IPv4 which is the initial IP address format standard. The main difference with IPv6 address is its availability. It also contains additional features, such as simplified IP address assignment, network renumbering, and IP announcements for the router nodes. While the 32bit IPv4 address pool is virtually exhausted and allowed somewhere around 4.3 billion addresses to be assigned, IPv6 is 128bits and can produce 3.4W1038 unique IP addresses.
Currently, most web servers are not configured to handle IPv6 connections, meaning an IPv6 client cannot connect to an IPv4 server. Thus, an implementation called IPv4-6 tunneling is created mostly on an ISP level to allow an IPv6 client to connect to an IPv4 host. Many devices such as tablets, laptops, phones, and desktop PCs need their software updated to support the new IPv6 IP address format.
What about users' privacy when it comes to using the Internet?
When people connect to their ISP's network using a desktop computer, mobile satellite phone or mobile cellular phone, or an Internet appliance, their IP's physical location is associated with an account owner's information is digitally stored on a dedicated server used to issue the service bills, making it possible for legal authorities to easily trace an Internet user's physical location. Furthermore, even without having a legal warrant to request an owner's account address information from an ISP, using tools like TraceMyIP.org, virtually anyone can approximate their IP's physical location. TraceMyIP.org website analytics and visitor's computer tracking functionality does just that but without providing the name or an exact street address of an Internet user, which would breach privacy laws.
Who can see and track my IP address?
When you send emails, post on web forums, use instant messengers, or access any online accounts - your computer's IP is logged by the network receiving communication requests. This is an essential step that cannot be avoided and contributes to various technical, security, and privacy aspects. Both IPv4 and IPv6 address formats are similar in their implementation and thus are captured by the web servers' statistical software in the same way.
Which digital computer devices utilize an IP address and can be detected by TraceMyIP.org?
Any digital computer device that has the capability to connect to the World Wide Web whether it's using a wireless wifi connection, LAN network, Bluetooth, 3G, 4G, or 5G implementations is reliably detected by TraceMyIP, LLC. Examples of IP devices include mobile cellular phones such as
TraceMyIP.org IP website tracking feature allows tracking mobile cell phones, tablets, and desktop type of computer devices and delivers captured data via an easy-to-understand application interface and instant visitor email notifications.
However, mobile devices that utilize IP address identification are not limited to phones, tablets, and laptop applications. As previously mentioned, smart appliances are the new era of Internet-connected devices that have embedded end-user web navigation interfaces allowing users to access the web. From ordinary cars that utilize GPS voice guidance to automated train GPS systems feedback devices to Airplane GPS autopilot navigation. Whether connected via proprietary protocols or internal networks - all of them are identified by a unique Internet Protocol address. As the network deployment emerges, all devices - from personal computers to autopilot GPS navigation systems eventually become a part of the same global network.
The latest developments in home automation devices and software, also add another vast array of digital computer devices to those that utilize IP addresses, thus each time they're connected to the WAN network, identify themselves on the wired or wireless network.
What can be done to protect my online identity and what is my IP's security and privacy?
One option is to connect your wired or wireless internet devices to a local network or a network provided by hotels, airplanes, or mobile hotspots that are not your home network. When you connect to a public network, such as the one in a hotel, your IP address will appear as assigned by the hotel's Wi-Fi access router. This can be an effective security measure. However, precautions should always be taken when connecting to public networks. Whether you're traveling for family, personal, or business reasons, you will likely need to connect to publicly available networks in resorts, hotels, cruise ships, airplanes, or restaurants. When using public networks, it's important to remember that they may be monitored using packet capture software, which logs outbound information on the network. An additional security risk to consider is being connected to the same network as other computers. If your computer has file sharing or transfer capabilities enabled, you may be sharing information with others connected to the same network in hotels, resorts, cruise ships, airplanes, or restaurants.
Another aspect worth mentioning is the option of using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) proxy server. This allows you to hide your IP address by utilizing a virtual private secure proxy server. It helps to some extent in concealing your private IP information. However, it is crucial to choose a VPN service carefully, as an unreliable or insecure VPN may do more harm than good.
What is a Proxy Server?
A Proxy server is a network service that utilizes a dedicated computer on a remote network allowing internet users such as yourself to make indirect connections to other computers/websites using its network connection. All of your web browsing activity is transferred to a remote server first. When using a proxy server, the recipient of your communications will see an IP address of the proxy server and not yours. There are plenty of hosted proxy server implementations on the world wide web that offer free online user accounts to hide your online identity. This, however, is not always safe and a bullet-proof method.
Is there a risk in using a Proxy Server?
(!) Definitely. Using anonymous proxy servers from unknown and not reputable providers to hide your Internet protocol address while using phones, tablets, and computers may present a more serious threat that can eventually contribute to the digital information leak and all risks associated with it. Since the digital data from those wireless and wired devices have to pass through a third-party proxy server, any information you transmit through that server can be intercepted and indexed, including any messages you may have sent including but not limited to your account login and password information that you may utilize for any online services.
In an attempt to search a better privacy on the Internet, many individuals utilize methods like proxy servers, not realizing that the danger of privacy breach is greater while using proxy services that claim to be secure. Furthermore, to trace and check on people's illegal activity, some government agencies set up free open proxy servers to monitor the activity of those people who are most likely to have something to hide. The risks are most often related to those proxy services that offer completely free services and are unknown in origin.
Never access any of your digitally stored financial account information, including online credit card banking systems, initiate the transfer of funds, pay your bills or mortgages online or register any online banking accounts that contain secure information while using a free proxy server using your phone, tablet, laptop or a desktop computer. As a matter of fact, most of the electronic identity theft cases targeted at financial sectors and being investigated worldwide are the direct result of digital information theft via the utilization of so-called free proxy servers that offer free online user accounts
If someone has my private IP information, what type of security risk does it present?
First of all, every internet user has an IP address, minimizing the chance of becoming a victim of a malicious attack due to the vast pool of available IP addresses. Secondly, to protect your privacy, internet service providers (ISPs) do not release digitally stored legal or financial bank information to anyone except legal authorities. Therefore, your private information connected to your ISP provider generally remains secure.
However, there is still a possibility of becoming a target of an internet hacker attack. An IP address attack occurs when a hacker attempts to forge your computer's IP by exploiting software vulnerabilities. If your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer is directly connected to a high-speed DSL or cable modem without a router or firewall, the hacker may access the private data on your computer, especially if you use network file sharing or transfer features. In such cases, it is advisable to have firewall and antivirus software, such as Antivir or Avast!, or a hardware router with a built-in digital firewall. Some high-speed DSL, cable, and dish internet service providers offer security software at no cost to their customers.
Additionally, there is the definite advantage of having a true hardware firewall built into a router or DSL, cable, or dish modem. While software firewalls provide data transfer control, they may be vulnerable to viruses, misconfiguration, and crashes. On the other hand, a hardware firewall performs its intended function reliably and consistently. Although a hardware firewall limits control over inbound traffic, it offers optimal protection for all computers on your local network against potentially harmful inbound traffic. While high-speed internet service providers, including DSL, cable, and dish networks, are susceptible to end-user security risks, many of them take extra measures to safeguard their users.
