How To check Your phone IP Address:

First of all, go to the Settings -->>> About phone.

  • Tap on Status
  • The IP address of your phone will be displayed with other information such as the IMEI or Wi-Fi MAC address

Mobile operators and ISPs also provide a so-called public IP address. Your public IP address will be in this format:


When you connect to a website, your IP address will be displayed on the latter. It is also possible to obtain additional information such as the port number, the name of your Internet service provider or your local IP address (specified in the phone settings).

I'm sorry it is not possible to get someone else iP address without having access to the phone:

But, you can track a phone as shown under the links:

that link you just sent me is bogus, it doesn't even have the name right, also i know someone who has a program or software that allows you to enter a phone number and get an ip, but he won't tell me what its called how to get it ect, i am very dissatified with your response

You will receive an email once other expert reply back to you. Thank you.

is there a way to ping with a cell number
Expert:  Martin replied 3 months ago.

Hi Mike,

There's a way to find out someone else's IP address whether they're on a mobile or computer.

Use the following website to generate a link.

You will have to send them the link, once they click on it you'll receive their IP address.

Simple as that.

Please take a moment to click on one of the stars at the top to rate me for my time (otherwise it doesn't get recognized).

Remember you can continue replying to me until you've got all the information you need.

where is the expert?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
almost but i don't want to send them anything, so that won't work either
Expert:  Martin replied 2 months ago.

Hello - I apologize for not being able to reply, I was unable to access your question.

The method I proposed is the only way you will get their IP address over a phone. A little social engineering and the link will get you the IP address.

Note that if you are intending on using the IP address for anything illegal it is your own responsibility.

I have done pen testing (ethical hacking and penetration testing) for companies and am very knowledgeable in this topic and it's the only way you'll get what you're looking for. Know the link doesn't necessarily need to be sent as you but relayed from a person they trust or anonymously as a random link share to something of their interest.

All the best.
