Hello there,

 

Recently I got a threat from someone who said that he knows my physical address, by/through tracking/using the addressv4 IP (ipv4??) of my mobile data. Is this possible? The person who threatens me is a bit of a savvy in technology and conducts illegal stuff online and he knows my email address (not password). Should I take this threat seriously that he knows my physical address?

 

Thank you so much,

-Unholy

About IP addresses and what they show.

It's not so much your IP, as that usually just shows where your Internet Service Provider is located. Other software, for example browsers can provide geolocation and photos often provide geotags, accurate to a few yards.

HMA (Hide My [bleep]) is a great VPN you can try to change your IP address. I have used this one before. This will help you to increase security and speed up your internet.

 A public VPN will almost certainly slow down your Internet, not speed it up
