This article will help you to find your public and private Internet Protocol (IP) addresses if you are a Mac user. Just follow these simple steps to find your IP Address.
- Open your preferred web browser and type “what is my IP address” into Google to obtain your public IP address quickly and easily.
- Your public IP address should be shown in a separate box at the top of the search results page. You can manually look up your public IP address if you’d prefer not to use Google.
- In the Finder on your Mac, click the Apple icon in the top-left corner of the display.
- From the drop-down menu, choose System Preferences. A network icon should be chosen.
- Choose your internet connection from the left-hand column (this will appear as Ethernet, USB, or Wi-Fi, depending on the nature of your connection).
- Choose Advanced.
- Pick the TCP/IP tab under the Advanced menu.
- Copy the address for your router from the list that appears below the Subnet Mask.
- Now, hit Return after opening your web browser and entering or pasting your router’s address into the navigation bar. This will direct you to the settings page for your router.
- To find your public IP address, look under WAN (Wide Area Network) or Connection Status in the router’s settings.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to sign in as the Administrator when logging into your router.
