Nowadays, the Internet is an indispensable part of our daily lives. It is simply an extension of our physical world and as such, it brings responsibilities that we might not always be aware of.

One of the most important things that we rarely consider is that our online existence presupposes our online identity. Therefore, nothing that we do online is without certain consequences. And those consequences are associated with our online identity, or in other words, our IP address.

When we post, like, comment and share on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, all this becomes a part of our online ‘record’. Most of us do this transparently, but there are also people who do this anonymously.

However, you can’t really stay anonymous, not even online.

Now, let’s go back and ask this simple but essential question ‒ Why would you want to know how to find someone’s IP address on Instagram in the first place?

There are many reasons for this, such as experiencing online harassment, fraud and other malicious behavior. On the other hand, there are some situations when someone creates a fake profile just to make a transaction, buy limited-edition sneakers and so on.

So, in these and similar cases, it is very useful to know the real IP behind the Instagram profile. It can help you detect numerous things and plan your next steps accordingly.

How to Find IP Address Instagram

You would be amazed if you knew what you could find out about people when you find their IP address. With some simple skills, you can learn how to find other people’s IP address on Instagram.

When you know their IP, you’re just a step away from being able to find out their location, name and other personal information.

And when you know all this information about someone, you can block someone’s access to your chat room, your content, your website, etc.

Finding out someone’s IP is much easier than it seems at first. In fact, there are several websites, such as IP Logger and Grabify IP Logger, that can help you do this quickly and easily.

Here are the steps that you need to follow if you want to know how to get IP address from Instagram account.

  • Go to the profile of the person whose IP you want to know.
  • Click on the three dots next to their username.
  • Copy their profile URL.
  • Go to Grabify IP Logger, IP Logger or similar websites.
  • Paste the link into the bar and click on ‘Create URL’. When the results page opens, you will see a new link generated.
  • Optional: If the new link is too long, make sure you shorten it with Google URL Shortener.
  • Chat with the person for some time and send them (the shortened) link. It would be wise to tell them that you want them to see a great picture or read a wonderful story on this link.
  • When they click on it, refresh the page in the logger website you used and you will get the person’s IP address at the bottom of the page.
  • If you use Facebook or Instagram to chat with the person, you might need to switch on the ‘Hide Bots’ option in order to get their genuine IP.

If all you needed to know was the person’s IP address, you’re good to go. However, if you want to know more details about the person, you will need to take a few more steps.

  • Go to IP Tracker or other similar websites.
  • Click on the IP Tracker option.
  • Paste the IP that you got from one of the IP logger sites and trace it.
  • Voila! What you got is the name, location, area code, ISP and other detailed information about the person.

With these thirteen simple steps, you know how to get IP address from Instagram account. At first, it might seem like spying on people. But sometimes, that is the only option you have if someone is harassing you on Instagram.

It is obvious that there is no way to really prevent someone from discovering your IP. However, there is a way to mask your real IP.

If you want your own server to remain invisible to people on the web, the best thing you can do is get residential IPs. With residential proxies, you will get a stable, secure and fast connection, as well as be untouchable for anyone who tries to identify your IP.

When you use residential proxies, nobody will know how to find IP address from Instagram profile you are using. Instead, they will only be able to detect the residential IP and its location.

Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean you should use proxies for malicious activities on Instagram or any other website. Proxies are there to offer you anonymity when you want to hide your true geolocation or in similar situations.
