IPinfo: IP Address Privacy Detection

Reveal if IP addresses are running behind a VPN, proxy, TOR and/or behind a hosting provider


Our Privacy Detection data provides a way for users to unmask a user’s true IP address, including VPN detection, proxy detection, tor usage, or a connection via a hosting provider, which could potentially be used to tunnel traffic, and mask the true IP address. We perform custom full internet wide scans to detect almost 10 million active VPNs. This is combined with data on public SOCKS and HTTP proxies, tor exit nodes, and our own IP usage type classification to determine which IP ranges belong to hosting providers. The data is updated regularly, so the results are always fresh.
