What is an IP address?

An Internet Protocol address is a series of numbers that identify a computer on a network. It is represented by four groups of up to three numbers, with each group separated by a period. For example, the default private IP address for many routers is

What does a public IP address tell you?

If a computer is connected to the internet, it has a public IP address. This address is just like a home address: it gives information about where that computer is located. Additionally, it also gives information about who controls that IP address, which in most cases will be an internet service provider (ISP) such as Comcast, Verizon, Frontier, etc.

How can I find my public IP address?

There are numerous ways to find your public IP address. The easiest way is right on this page. In the search bar at the top of our site, your public IP address is already pre-filled in. If you don’t see it, just refresh the page.

What else can I use this tool for?

If you have a public IP address that’s not connected to the system you’re using right now, you can check its location. Just key in the address in the search bar above. This is useful if you want to check the approximate location of another connected system, such as a smartphone or even an internet-connected car.

You can also use this tool if you are using a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN masks your public IP address, making it seem like your system is located in a different place. If you check this tool and it shows a different IP address from what your ISP provides, that means your VPN is working correctly.

Private IP Addresses

Public IP addresses identify your modem on the internet. However, your router has its own set of private IP addresses it distributes to the devices connected to the internet in your home. These addresses are not unique and entering them here won’t give you any information.

Generally, IP addresses that look like 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x, and 192.168.x.x are private addresses. These identify your various devices to your router, not the internet at large. If you can’t get our tool to work, make sure you are entering a public IP address, not a private one.

Features of this website

What is my Country is a tool to find out which country you are currently in, based on your network information. Details such as your country, city, browser, and operating system can be gathered from your IP address.


Information sent as part of web requests to any website can be intercepted and used to reveal information about yourself, potentially becoming a security threat. We recommend only visiting trusted websites protected by SSL encryption.


Your country, location, browser, and other info are revealed to every website you visit, even ones using encryption. Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or a web proxy to hide this. Browsers such as TOR also provides this protection.


On the plus side, this knowledge can be valuable if you are running a website. You can see people from which countries are visiting your website, what language they speak, and what browser, operating system, or device they are using.

A good VPN is a must for anyone these days, especially if you are in a place with excessive censorship or surveillance. Here is what to look for in a VPN.

About us

Ever woke up one day, logged in to your VPN or web proxy, and wondered what country the websites you visit think you are from? We know what that feels like, and so we have setup this website to tell you exactly which country you are in, along with other information about yourself.

The above information is gathered with the help of HTTP headers that your browser uses to connect to any website. Your IP address is guessed from these headers and then the GeoIP database is used to determine your coordinates, city and country.

The Technicals

If you are behind a proxy, the “HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR” header is used to obtain the IP address while any IPs belonging to private classes (e.g. 10.* or 192.168.*) are ignored. In the latter case, the IP displayed is that of your proxy or routing device.

Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported.

Protect Yourself Online

In case you prefer not to disclose your location, or any other information about yourself, you can use a proxy or a virtual private network (VPN) that hides this information.

We highly recommend NordVPN which protects your privacy, allows you to open sites that may otherwise be inaccessible from your location, and makes this possible without compromising on speed.
