IP Address is the primary parameter about which every internet user should be concerned. The IP Address is involved in each of your internet activity performed on your computer. Every website you open keeps track of your internet identity and identifies what action you are playing around on their website. Your IP Address is your internet identity, which is used by each website you visit to keep track of your browsing habits.
The general meaning of an IP Address is an internet protocol address, and this protocol includes with every single request initiated from your browser or computer via the internet to any website or server. Whenever you try to open a website in your browser, it knocks the door of website's server and identifies itself as a number like 126.96.36.199. Every computer connected via the internet has a different IP Address, and the responsibility of assigning IP Address is on ISP (Internet service provider). The internet giants like Google and Facebook have their own ISPs.
We know your IP Address because whenever you visit a website, your browser initiates a request and include your IP with the request, and as soon as the request reaches our server, it gets the IP Address from the request and shows it on your screen. You cannot hide your IP Address from any website. It is not in any way possible to use the internet without an IP Address.
