My IP

Simple web app / browser extension that will show you your public IP (as visible from the outside world) and (if possible) your country, city and some related info.

My IP will show you:

  • your public (remote, visible from internet) IP address
  • location info (if found) -- like country, city and region
  • city latitude and longitude
  • the exact location (if available in the IP database) of your device on the map
  • some other tracking info (browser settings) like:
    • User‑Agent (your current browser)
    • Browser Language
    • Cookies -- enabled or disabled
    • JavaScript -- enabled or disabled
    • Flash version (if enabled)
    • Window-Size (the browser window size)
    • Screen size
  • related HTTP headers, like "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR" and "REMOTE_ADDR"

The tool is available as free app/extension for Chrome and Opera browsers and online (as web-app).

Install & How To...

To get the addon -- just click the respective button above. Note that the Chrome version comes in two variants: as standard toolbar extension and also as "chrome app" (the app will be added to your apps page and not to the toolbar and is mostly useful on Chrome OS devices).

For the extension version (Chrome & Opera), there are some options available: you can set the button to open the target page in new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add it to the context menu.


Remove My IP

If you want to remove the My IP app / extension from your browser, just right-click on the icon and select "Remove from Chrome...".

How to add "my IP" shortcut to the context menu?

Why the location is not always accurate?

-- The IP location info is not always accurate. Sometimes the IP address associated with given IP address is the address of the owner entity (for example -- the internet provider's headquarters instead of actual city). Sometimes the IP address changes it's owner but the database isn't (yet) updated, sometimes there is no info about given IP in general. We try our best to keep the database updated but it is just not possible to have all the info accurate all the time. In fact, the location info is just an approximate, it gives an idea where the user of some web service is located, but it is not like GPS or something similar. It's just a database with IP addresses and coresponding phisical location (city or region)...
