- What can a hacker do with an IP address? 5 answers
I was posting on a website forum. A person that doesnt like me on there managed to find out my ipv4 address.
I called my isp and asked them to change it, they told me to unplug my router and wait. I checked and my ipv4 address is still the same but my ipv6 address is different.
Am I in danger of being hacked or a signifigant security risk? I dont think I can do anything to stop them from finding my personal information but im worried that they might try to hack me or tell someone else to. What should I do?
I went into my router settings and changed the password as well as making sure all the firewall settings were selected and on max security.
