What Is My IP
What Is My Ip?
The abbreviation "Ip" stands for "Internet Protocol." The term "protocol" refers to the set of rules and guidelines that govern the connectivity of computer networks.
Your IP address "address" refers to a unique set of numbers associated with all of your online activities.
Every device in a network has an Internet Protocol address, which is a string of unique numeric identifiers separated by periods. This includes every computer, router, modem, printer, switch, and other device connected to a TCP/IP network.
This address is the foundation of the networking architecture, and without it, there would be no network.
Once you're online, your Internet Service Provider assigns you an active IP address automatically; you don't have to sign up for one (ISP).
An active IP address is required to access the internet.
It's also worth noting that IP addresses are assigned to computers rather than people.
