Track IP address

IP address:

In this world everyone has some address having all details about your location in real life.

In the same way, Every internet user have his address in the world of internet. It is named as Internet Protocol address. Shortly named as IP address

When you send/receive emails they are transferred from IP address to IP address

Any data transfer is subjected to IP addresses of sender and receiver.

So this is a simple concept of IP address.

Track IP address

Types of IP address:

1. Static IP address:
This IP address is fixed always for a single internet connection. Internet service Providers (ISP) never reveals your static IP address to you.

2. Dynamic IP address:
Every time you get connected to internet your Dynamic IP changes.

How to get IP address Just by sending an email:

First of all you need a mail tracking system for tracing the IP of a person sending you an email

www.mailtracking .com has ready set up of IP tracing.

This gives you a free account.

You can connect it with your current email account

When you send email to someone named, you simply have to add to it.

As shown here:

Now when Your message is opened by the receiver, you‘ll get email to you .

It describes following things to you

1.IP address of receiver,

2.His approximate geographical location,

3.Time of opening the email

4.His browser details

5.His screen resolution

And many more details as this.

Now every time he opens your message you’ll be notified

So finally by using this site you can simply get IP address of any person whose email address is known.

And good thing is the receiver can’t even notice that we are tracing him.

How hackers hack using IP address:

Hackers use server-client services like MIRC channel you can connect with known IP address.

But this need authentication from the receiver.

So hackers use tools as Trojan.

They enter the destination IP address in Trojan and it tries to connect to you.

And if he get success in connecting he can destroy your PC completely or he plays games with you its all his own choice.

His is how hacking through IP address takes place.

    Did you test this? I doubt it will work with the default gmail setup. I think all it’s doing is the old send an html email with a link to an one pixel image in it, along with a javascript function to determine the rest of it.

    I think gmail’s default is to not load images, and many people disable html emails anyway (javascript won’t run). I’m not sure why you want someone’s ip address, unless they’ve sent you spam and want to see who their isp may be, but that assumes that the email in “from:” field is valid, which is a very big assumption.
