This question already has an answer here:

As I understand it, my public ip is known for everyone who communicates with me over the internet. I'm concerned about security, and my doubt is, what can a malicious agent find out about me by knowing my ip? Is it unsafe not to use a VPN or a proxy for normal web surfing?
