Someone got my IP address, and I'm scared they might find me



  • Around a year ago, I was on Reddit and clicked on a hyperlink, not knowing it grabs your IP. Ever since then, the person who grabbed my IP would sometimes comment on my Reddit posts and comments saying things like "I can't wait to meet you" and things similar to that. Should I be scared, or are they just trying to scare me for fun? (Also, their YouTube channel is called ChupplesTheClown, as the link I clicked redirected me to one of their videos.)



  • You can check what information your IP address reveals about you using free tools such as ipaddress.com

    As mentioned in comments, they will not get the accurate location. They might just get the location of the cell tower your router is connected to but that's it.
