An IP (Internet protocol) address is a number assigned to a device connected to the Internet. Websites use this to send the information that you’ve requested back to your computer, rather than a different computer down the road or halfway around the world.
Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country, county and city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. Unlike your home address, though, most people’s IP addresses are dynamically assigned—they change regularly.
