What is an IP address?
An IP address is a unique number for devices connected to the Internet. IP addresses are assigned by your Internet Service Provider and can be used to track identify you and your activity online. Bad actors and advertisers use your IP to target you.
Security best practices
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is used to give you a new IP address. This is useful for hiding your true identity and activity online. Instead of your real personal IP being broadcast, a VPN gives you a different one. This helps protect your privacy and security.
Difference between IPV4 & IPV6
Most websites and devices use Internet Protocol version 4 (IPV4). IPV6 is a new and upgraded version that is slowly becoming available. It offers more stability, more security, and will allow for more and faster internet connections in the future.
