Confidential information is information that is of value precisely because it is not generally known to competitors or to the public. If you are being harassed online, or some unauthorized person has gotten into your email account, it is fairly straightforward to get a judge to issue a subpoena to ISP to reveal who a given IP address is assigned to at a given time. This is perhaps one of the most common questions or comments I get. I have IP addresses on ok. The text could read: So my friend is wrong about how he got a phone number from somebody?

Is there nothing else I can do? Its not really just for the ps4 but for the principle and for honor. The ps4 could be broken for all I care, I just want justice. I paid that console with my suckass job and some useless shit just grabbed it. The resource issue that law enforcement faces is perhaps the single biggest roadblock to progress.

I believe that to be true almost worldwide. Hi Leo, I enjoy reading your info. Like most ,if not all , I get spam, phishing and spoofing. So annoying even though Gmail does seem to recognize most and puts into spam folder but I just get so annoyed when some bathplug copies my own email address as it makes me wonder can the mongrel access my mail. Was I just lucky. What I did was to send to, two of the hosting companies involved, copies of the headers of the fraudulent emails I had got in my gmail account.

You can, most ips can be traced to a location. You must have the wits to figure it out. Getting the name of the culprit is a little harder.

All the IP address gives you is the location of the server that a person is going through. You would have to get my actual location directly from my internet provider. As Leo correctly says, that would take a court order. Hey, I want to look for an IP for an email that I have how do you get it when their is no email that has been sent. But just an email address is what you have and thus you can not go to the email header.

The thing is that an email address can be used from anywhere. So this will tell you little more than where the server that hosts the may be located. For instance, you can use whois. But it will tell you very little about a person using a Gmail address. Hey Leo, One question, is it possible to know the company name who is using the internet services of the service provider?

You can rely on http: One of my neighbours used my wifi and as a result I got an outstanding bill. Is it possible for me to get his IP address? And if I do and complain to my ISP,can they track him down? Yes, but it is your IP address. Since he was on your network, he was using your IP address. Not enough info to understand the issue here. By obtaining his ip address,i could complain to my isp and file a complaint so that he can be made to pay for the outstanding bill on the assumption that my complaint to the isp can help me get a court order something like that.

The thing is that it is your IP address. If he used your internet connection, then he was using your IP address. It is your responsibility to have your router secured. Please read this article — https: You may have one recourse, however. If your ISP sent out a technician who set up your internet connection and failed to secure your router for you, then you may have grounds to complain to your ISP. If you are referring to someone who illegally used your internet connection, the only IP number which would show up is yours, because going through your internet he would be using your IP address.

A user is leaving hateful comments to me that verge into death threats. I know their IP address since I track my blog, and so I have an estimation for where they live. They do not know your exact address. They are only seeing your IP address which tells very little. Hello, I believe we am being framed for sending anonymous harassing emails I did not send.

I was told by the accusing party that through an attorney a subpoena was gotten and Google was subpoenaed for records. They have told me that they have proof emails came from my IP address. I was never notified via google about a subpoena NOR was I notified by my ISP provider that a subpoena was issued and my information given out. I certainly did not speak to anyone at google but I did speak to my ISP who looked up account and said there was no subpoena and no info disclosed.

My question is, how is it possible someone is framing me and claiming proof that I created and sent emails that I did not? Does google respond that fast to subpoenas? I freaked out by this as someone is framing me and hacked into home network.

This sounds like a scam. More than likely your ISP is right… there is no subpoena. If a subpoena does exist you can contact local law enforcement to verify. This is probably scammers calling you up and trying to scare you. Their goal is to get you to give them money to save you from something that does not exist. It may be useful to report the incident to your local police. Connie, thank you for the fast reply. If you can believe it, this is someone I personally know accusing me of this, not a stranger trying to get money.

But how could they eat that without my ISP provider? Again, subpoena was only to Google. Again, I did NOT send these emails from my phone or cell if that even mattered so I am utterly perplexed on how they could be being told from Google it was me.

Hello,this is urgent,my phone was stolen two days ago at 2. When something is stolen, generally, the first thing to do is contact the police. Hi, if you posted on a forum and they found out your ip I do understand that the isp is what they can get and that would be the service provider you are with. Would they be able to track your identity down just by knowing your ip?

Or would this require someone that works at the the company with a it or tech background to do this. Servers know your IP address as soon as you visit them. So yes, a forum does see your IP address. So does any webpage you visit. All servers record the IP addresses of users as they browse through the internet — and we are talking billions and billions of hits each day.

And yes again, an unscrupulous employee of the ISP may also be able to look you up. It would probably require someone who works at the company.

Doing that would be really hard and require a lot of resources. Please read the article you are commenting on, it answers your question. Although the IP address is in Panama. It would be hard to get the Panamanian law enforcement involve in something like that. I am interested in how people know who viewed or downloaded something illegal from an ip address? What i mean is, if ip address is dynamic that means a lot of people shared same ip address…so how do they know who exactly was the person who did something illegal on internet?

This is why it usually takes much more information than just an IP address. And that information — like ISP access logs — is typically only available with a warrant. Recently past 4 months myself and my ex girlfriend have been getting harassing messenger messages and texts as well. I do not know how to do anything that contains more then Facebook or things like this. Can someone help me with this?

I want comments to be valuable for everyone, including those who come later and take the time to read.
