The “IP” shortening means Internet protocol. The “address” is a unique number of digits that connects to all your activity. To make it more simple, IP address is the individual address that ensures: the information you requested is routed back to you! But what are the ways to change my IP address?
The reasons WHY
Your motives for borrowing a different IP address might vary from accessing blocked content and avoiding Web snooping to bypassing bans and changing your geographical location. You can use the next options to change your IP address, let’s take a look at them.
When you are home, your IP address connects to your home router, therefore all the devices are assigned with your “home” IP address. When you are at the office Your IP address is not traveling with you and you will be assigned a new one. Whenever you connect to a different WIFI your location at the same time will change. How does it work? You are just using a workplace network IP address while you surf the Web.
VPN coverage (the safest way)
Virtual private network usage has many perks and one of them is IP address change. When activating VPN you hide your public IP address and VPN client provides you private and secure Internet connection. The new IP address assigned to you hides your location. So you can still be in your home country, but explore the Web as if you are somewhere else! Among other things, VPN provides high bandwidth, safe connection and protects your vulnerable data from leaking, prevents data tracking and digital footprint.
Besides the above-mentioned options, you can reset your modem to get your IP address changed. Unplug your modem, wait 30-40 seconds and plug it back. Your modem will register with a new IP address.
