What is my IP address’ is one of the most searched phrases on the web. An IP address is a unique set of numbers assigned to your device when it connects to the internet. The IP address is how the rest of the internet identifies your device. This means your IP address is unique to your device and cannot be duplicated, similar to a postal address.
Furthermore, there are two types of IP addresses. The first one is the public IP address, which is the address that is publicly displayed and forms the gateway through which your device connects to the internet. That aside, there is also a private IP address for your device, which identifies your particular device in a larger network of devices.
If you own multiple devices that connect to the internet through a router then each of those devices have their own IP addresses. The infographic below describes how you can locate those individual private IPs across different operating systems/ecosystems.
