Two different IP addresses

Lerato Mothupi asked 3 years ago

IP address I was given from this website is different from the one I know and the address is wrong
The IP address I was given here is 105.nnn.nnn.114 & the one I know is 105.nnn.nnn.45. How does this happen? Does my IP address has changed or being cloned?

We display the IP we detect in your connection to us. Your ISP may be sending your traffic through a proxy which could be the reason you’re seeing a different IP.

Or it can be possible that he is using a VPN.

It's possible he's using a VPN, but VPN's require activation on the users part before their connection is in place. IMO, it's unlikely a VPN in this case.

Hi Peter. We may have detected an IPv4 address as well as an IPv6 Address. When we do that, we show both. If that’s not the case can you give us a little more info so we can help? Where are you seeing the two different IPs?
