What exactly is an IP address and how can i see mine? What importance does it carry? I understand it's a very important term in the computers and technology world, most geeks love to use it ad every now and then i see something of such nature from my internet service provider. Sometimes back I could not access my financial details on a cryptocurrency wallet network because their security parameters sensed that my IP was changing during the login session. I had to switch to another ISP. So I want to know...what exactly is an IP or IP address and how does it affect me, an everyday internet user.
