Email IP linked to Facebook

8isenough asked 2 years ago

I have a Gmail account that I use through Google (not through Outlook etc.).

I also have Facebook, that uses a live.com email address.

Someone is telling me that they linked an email they received from a Gmail account to my Facebook and Gmail IP address. 😡

Is this even possible? :confused: I did not send the email in question I am just being blamed based on IP information.

Thank you for your help. 🙂

Thanks for your question 8isenough.

All IP addresses and email addresses can be spoofed, but sometimes the real information can also be found in the header. It depends on the abilities of the person spoofing.

Also, with 8isenough for a username, I will assume you are not alone in the house. Anyone that might have gained access to your computer and gmail/facebook accounts would be able to do the same.

It could also be someone connecting to your wifi if have it.
