What is my IP Address?
You’ve all heard of an IP address, but do you know what an IP address is, or what it’s for? Most of you are connected to the Internet so it’s important to know the basics. We’re here to answer your questions and explain everything you need to know about an IP address.
How do I change my IP address?
Don’t let your geo-location restrict you.
As much as your IP address is helpful to websites for sending you the right and relevant information based on your location, websites can also use this information to restrict, block, and track the content you access. Ever opened BBC iPlayer outside of the UK and found it doesn’t work? Or looked up a Winter coat on ASOS and suddenly it’s advertised everywhere on your Facebook News Feed? Your IP address gives away this information. So, what should you do? Change your IP.
Pretend you’re in another country.
Using ZenMate VPN (Virtual Private Network) is like having a PO box on the Internet - an address that no one can trace back to you. When you click on a website, ZenMate shields your real IP and gives one of ours. The website's data is delivered to our IP address - and then we forward it to you. The result? You appear to be in the country where our server is located; you'll surf the Internet anonymously - with added security. Access the Internet like a local, wherever you are in the world.
