Although TraceMyIP has been designed to track website visitors, there are other creative uses of the software that allows you to utilize the software potential.
If you need to track your own computers and devices IP changes, you can utilize TraceMyIP to capture and maintain logs of all your computer devices IP changes and their connectivity to WWW.
Capturing your device IPs and registering IP changes.
The most simplistic approach to track each device IP changes over time would be
- Create a separate project and a web page on your website. Name the project with your device name, such as “Home computer – living room”
- Install the provided tracker code on a separate web page named “Home computer – living room”. Ensure that the tracker image shows up when visiting that specific page.
- For each created web page, add the following meta tags to prevent the browser from caching a tracker code (the code must be in the <head> section of your page, for example right after <title> tag):
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />
- Open the dedicated web page on your computer (in this example your computer located in the living room) and pin the browser tab. Once complete, each time a browser is opened it will open the dedicated page with TraceMyIP tracker will will record the current IP, time and any IP changes that might have occurred.
With the steps above, it would be feasible to track devices IP changes, the boot time of each computer’s browser and keep the long term logs of each computer usage.
