Well, I recently made a thread telling you guys how to get someones IP address easily , and because of this thread a lot of people have been asking me why do I need someones IP and what exactly can I do with it? So I thought I would make this thread to tell you exactly what you can do with someones IP.
One of the most easiest things you can do with someones IP is find out their location, to do this,

These are just some basic things that you can do with someones IP, but their are a lot more, it would just take me forever to write them on here
You might be wondering, well how can I stop myself from becoming vulnerable from hackers, and how can I protect myself from giving away my IP?
Well there isn't much you can do but here are a few ways in which you can stop it.
You can use a proxy, this is a website you use to browse the internet on an anonymous IP.

I hope this helped everyone who was wondering what you can do with an IP, if you need any further help feel free to PM with your questions and queries, thanks.
