How To Trace Someone’s IP Address on Facebook

IP addresses are digital identities. They allow you to know a person’s approximate location and thus enable you to contact the proper authorities in cases of Digital Harassment.

Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t share such information about it’s user’s with individuals and rarely with the authorities.

But that doesn’t mean that we are helpless.

There ‘WERE’ several ways of tracing someone’s IP on Facebook but now, most are obsolete. Only one of them still works.

This method involves sending a message to your harasser and believe me, they are sure to respond.

So here’s how:

1] Chose a website that the target would like to read. Then copy the website’s URL.

2] Then visit any of these IP Logging Services: Grabbify, IPLogger, Blasze.

3] Paste the URL there and follow the instructions to create a tracking URL.

4] But the Tracking URL gives it away so you need to use an URL shortening service to shorten it. The best service is Goo.gl obviously because it is offered by Google.

5] Then send that shortened link to the target along with a message about what the website is. You can also come up with innovative messages to make the target click it.

6] Once he or she clicks it, you will be able to view it on the IP Logging Service’s website.

7] Once you know the IP Address, use any IP Geo-location Tool to find out the country, then email the respective authority and don’t fail to include the IP in it.

Tip:
1] If you only want to know the country then don’t bother with the IP Logging Service, simply choose any website, shorten it’s URL using Goo.gl and send it. Goo.gl provides the visitor’s country by default. Since Goo.gl is offered by Google, it is pretty accurate.

2] To avoid suspicion you can tweet the tracking URL along with a few words. Since Twitter shortens all URLs by default it doesn’t garner much suspicion. You can then share your tweet or ask the follower to view it. [This is my trick!]

If you are going to use this to trap some Cyber Harasser, you might want to read my article on How to create a Fake Facebook Profile.

Note:
You are not committing a crime by tracing someone’s IP but if you publish the IP somewhere publicly then that is a crime.
