What information can an IP address reveal?

Looking up an IP address can provide a lot of information about the device and network associated with that IP address. Here’s what you can find out by looking up someone’s IP.

A man looks up an IP address and its geolocation.
A woman looks up an IP address and the device’s ISP.
A woman uses NordVPN’s IP lookup to find an IP’s hostname.

How accurate is NordVPN’s IP lookup tool?

No IP lookup tool is 100% accurate. Like other tools, NordVPN’s IP location finder looks up the IP address you enter using an IP database. While IP databases are usually accurate, they typically take a while to update, so may occasionally have discrepancies.

IP lookup results may also be affected by factors like proxy and VPN use. For example, if a user is connected to a VPN, you’ll see the VPN server’s IP address, not theirs. By connecting to a VPN server, a user instantly becomes more private — no one can see their actual approximate location or ISP anymore.

Why should you hide your IP?

You may want to hide your IP address for several reasons — from privacy to online freedom.

A man hides his IP address to protect his privacy.
A man hides his IP address to avoid surveillance and censorship.
A woman hides her IP to prevent bandwidth throttling.
A woman changes her IP to access content securely.
