This question already has an answer here:
I recently heard this question:
Can some guys track u using your IP address (what if this guy has access to ISP)?
And I can't find an answer to this question.
Because, I think 99% of people who use the Internet have dynamic IPs. So, the only thing that a person can do is somehow get your IP address even if you are behind a proxy (which is simply possible, as you know). By getting this IP, they have your dynamic address and they could do some DNS-lookup to find out who is your IP provider.
Now I have 2 question:
- is it possible to get some information from user to detect user location?
- if a government like north Korea gets a user's Dynamic address, what does this government need to go to the ISP and say:
"We need the user who was in your
I mean what the ISP needs to tell you, the user you who was in an IP address and you want him is: That Guy.
I think it is not OK for an ISP to give governments user info, but I want to find a complete answer for this question for once.
I know there is Geo-location API from HTML 5, but Geo-location show some dialog, and at least we are safe and happy for this.
