Your IP address (188.8.131.52) is a string that is used to identify you on Internet. For your information, almost any website logs the IP address of visitors, so when you browse a website, your IP address may be logged in the web server’s logs. Your IP address may be logged also by third-party websites like analytics and advertisement sites, to build profiles on you. There are few ways to hide your IP address online, but the most reliable way is to simply buy a cheap and reliable VPN service. So by using a VPN you can not only hide your IP, but you can also change the IP address and be 100% anonymous online.
