I was wondering if it is possible to be located from your IP adress, i know that google can instantly locate from google maps but what about other people?
More or less. At best they'll get you within a block or so, though - it's more or less impossible for them to get your EXACT address.
I mean geolocation software just isn't that advanced, even if your ip could be plotted on a 'map'.
Your ISP will at least reduce the IP to a state or city in most cases. If that's not geologically close, considering we are reducing your unknown location worldwide to a state/city then I don't know what is.
The 'city' that my ISP is in is three towns over and would be about a half-hour drive from my house. You couldn't feasibly find me from my IP address because there's thousands and thousands and thousands of people in the circle between me and the location my IP reports.
This is what happens when you live sixty miles from any major city.
Those geolocation websites will give the general area of the IP.
Your ISP can (obviously) tie the IP to DHCP lease (or static allocation) which will then identify your account, which presumably will have the exact address.
So the correct answer is, it depends.
NOBODY BUT YOUR ISP can get your address... holy crap are people this dumb IRL? an IP is just your place on the internet. it isnt a home address. nobody can get your address unless law enforcement subpoena'd your ISP for it for legal reasons
its a shame that the techno nerds of this century are this fucking retarded
fuck we need to go back to the 8s before all this bullshit technology when people were actually smarter and not braindead gamer fags
>fuck we need to go back to the 8s before all this bullshit technology when people were actually smarter and not braindead gamer fags
8 kinda sucked though, the Republic was dead and obviously going to stay dead but the Empire was so new that everyone still kinda wanted the Republic back.
Things didn't really pick back up again until Trajan, a century later.
Everybody shut the fuck up for a second.
Yes, it's possible. It's generally accurate only to the city. See for yourself:
However, if you are using obscure internet service providers, the attacker can narrow the range of location even closer.
Let's say you're a faggot at X University. They're using bippity-boop ISP that includes the university name in the IP's hostname. Whoopee, the faggot now knows where you go to school!
>locate your house by IP
nigga, do you even know how the internet works? ips change all the time. google doesnt have access to every ISP in the world to know whos ip goes to what address.
you are probably using some shitty fios that has gps locating and google maps is using the gps info to locate you. normal ISPs dont work like this.
this has to be a troll post. seriously nobody is this fucking dumb
Unless you're inside your ISP's office where your IP resolves to, you're fine. You'll get within a few blocks to a few miles depending on how your ISP does thier routing and such. I'm with Bell here in southern Ontario and my IP routes as one of 3 cities depending on whos giving me my address.
Get ready John, we found the massive faggot.
Give me your IP address and within 24 hours I would of emptied your bank account, hidden child porn on your pc and tipped off the police, hacked your smart tv and programmed it to kill your family at 3am. all this is just child's play to real hackers like me, if you don't act like a prick on the net then you have nothing to fear.
>you can steal someones identity with just an ip address
The reason techno nerds back then weren't retarded is because computers are way more user friendly now. In the 80s, if you wanted to use a computer you had to fucking know how a computer worked. Nowadays, literal children can use them without understanding a thing about the hows or the whys.
Which is fine in my book. Computers being easy to use gives me more people to bully in my videogames. I feel really bad for the poor bastards in IT, though.
