What Is An IP Address?

An IP address is a unique number linked to your device that allows it to connect to the internet. But it’s also tied to sensitive information about your device, physical location, and online activity.

Why Should I Hide My IP Address?

On its own, an IP address is harmless. Every device has a public IP address. Unfortunately, your IP address can be used by advertisers, trackers, and authorities to: 

  • Track your activity online
  • Collect and sell your personal information 
  • Restrict your access to online content

Has concerns over digital privacy

Wants to protect against IP tracking

Frequently Asked Questions 

An IP address is a necessary part of connecting to the internet. It’s a unique number linked to all of your online activity — including your device information, location, and more. This unique number provides a way for advertisers, hackers, and authorities can use your IP to track you online, gather and sell your personal information, or restrict your access to online content.

Advertisers, cybercriminals, and authorities can use your IP address to keep track of you as you use the internet. Websites also use your IP address to decide which content to show you – often limiting access to your favorite content based on your IP address. Using PIA’s VPN to hide your IP address helps you protect against these threats to digital privacy and online freedom. 

IP addresses are closely tied to your geographical location because they’re assigned to you by your local internet service provider (ISP). While an IP address won’t reveal the exact address of your home, it’s very easy to tell which country, state, city, or region you’re accessing the internet from. This is bad news for privacy — the good news is that PIA’s VPN allows you to hide your IP in a matter of seconds.

VPNs are perfectly legal in most countries worldwide. Using a VPN like PIA to help protect digital privacy and online freedom is your legal right as an internet user. Unfortunately, some authoritarian governments, such as those in China, Russia, Belarus, and North Korea, only allow citizens to use state-approved VPN services.

When you connect to PIA’s VPN, all of your internet traffic is routed through a secure, encrypted tunnel via one of our servers, hiding your location info from websites, government censors, and certain cybercriminals. Your IP address is masked by one assigned by our VPN server, making your real IP invisible to the websites and services you connect to.

Yes. You're still protected when using a dedicated IP. Unlike a shared IP, which is assigned to many users, a dedicated IP is unique to you — no one else can use it — but it has all the same security and anonymity benefits of a traditional VPN. And, while a dedicated IP is unique to only you, it’s not assigned to you by your ISP, so there’s no way to trace it back to you. Not even PIA knows what your dedicated IP address is, thanks to our anonymous token method!
