How to Find IP Address

Internet Protocol or IP is unique to every device on the internet. A local network is also identified by its IP address.

They are the identifiers that allow information to be transferred between devices on a network: they contain location information and allow devices to communicate with one another.

Your computer’s networking software is coded to obey a set of built-in networking standards and rules in order to connect to the Internet and share information and data.

There’s also a pretty cool Google shortcut. Just click this link and Google will display your IP address at the top of the search results page. Otherwise…

On a Mac:
 Apple menu 
> System Preferences Network > Select either WiFi or Ethernet, depending on your connection > your IP address is displayed in the open window, right beneath the status of your connection.

On a PC running Windows 10: On the task bar, select WiFi or Ethernet > click on the network you’re currently connected to > select Properties > your IP address is listed next to “IPv4 address.”

On an Android smartphone or tablet: 
Settings > Wireless & Networks 
(or “Network & Internet” on Pixel devices) select the WiFi network that you’re connected to > Your IP address is displayed alongside other network information.

On an iPhone/iPad:
 Settings > WiFi > 
tap the arrow next to your network name > your IP address is displayed to the right of “IP address.”
