A new ExpressVPN privacy checker reveals all

What’s in an IP address?

Your IP address reveals some in depth information about you and your internet connection.

The location of your current device
Your country
ZIP/Postal code

Web sites you visit can gather even more information. By combining your IP address with other information like geolocation APIs, WebGL, any Javascript you have running, and content filters, a website can build quite a thorough profile of you.

Your browser and browsing habits could reveal your actual address, your computer model, the OS you use, your cookies, the fonts you use, and all the websites you’ve visited.

The fact is, anyone can find your IP address, even people you chat to with Skype, Facetime, and Whatsapp.
A VPN disguises your IP address

A VPN will switch your IP address by virtually placing you in a different location. When using a VPN, your internet traffic is routed through an encrypted tunnel so that no one, including your ISP, can see what you look at, or where you’re looking from.

You will appear to be in the same place as the server location. If you’re in the U.S., but connect to a UK VPN location, you will appear to be in the UK.

If you want a private and secure connection, ExpressVPN will hide your IP address. Which lets you see all the content you want while remaining anonymous.
