The Internet Protocol (IP) address is a special number that is allocated to every device that can access the internet such as tablets, mobile phones, and computers. This unique address allows electronic devices to receive and also send information across the internet.
Electronic devices without IP addresses cannot access the internet. The IP addresses also enable service providers to identify the location of a web visitor. Initially, IP addresses were only made of numbers until recently when alphabets have been added to contain the growing internet use.
Does incognito hide your IP address?
Switching your browser to incognito mode only allows you to hide your browsing activity from other device users such as the websites you visited and downloaded.
However, it does not hide your information from internet service providers, the websites you have visited and advertisements. Incognito mode is not a complicated security system; it only enables users to safeguard their browsing history from others.
