How is this site able to retrieve my local IP address? And how do I prevent websites from being able to obtain my local IP address?

Brian Veric asked 7 months ago

I noticed that this website lists our local IP address. How is that possible? Is it a javascript instruction that retrieves the local IP address?
How do I prevent my local IP address from being accessible. Do I actually have to block javascript?

Hi Brian,

We've addressed this previously. Here's a link: https://www.whatismyip.com/questions/local-ip/

And yes, you can disable javascript to keep it from passing your local IP address.
