Why Is Your IP Address so Valuable?
It’s easy to find your IP address. If it falls into the wrong hands, it can lead to serious headaches for you – or worse outcomes.
Reveals Your Location
Your IP address reveals your location, usually within a few miles. This information might seem innocuous, but once bad actors know where you are, they can hunt for other information about you – or hone in on your exact spot.
With your IP address, it’s easy for someone to monitor what you do online – i.e., where you visit, the transactions you make, or the people you send messages to. With that information, hackers, snoopers and government agencies can build a comprehensive online profile around you and your activities. They can then sell or give this information away at their leisure.
Once hackers know your IP address, they can engage in DoS or DDoS attacks against you. In short, they can overwhelm your router with “dummy” requests, preventing you from accessing the Internet as normal – and possibly holding you hostage to attackers’ demands.
Your IP address is usually only associated with your router. But bad actors can easily “spoof” this number and commit illegal activity in your name. This could force you to spend hours dealing with your ISP, or cause serious legal or reputational trouble that can be costly to resolve.
