Google Now Shows Your IP Address via Query

By Jason Fitzpatrick on October 19th, 2011

Thousands upon thousands of people would go to Google and type in “what is my IP” only to immediately click the first link to find out. Now Google offers the answer right along with your query results.

Visit Google and enter a search query like “what is my ip”, “my ip”, or “ip address”, and Google displays your public IP address right below your search query–as seen in the screenshot above. It’s a handy way to find your IP address that saves you that extra click through to a third-party site (we’re sure the folks behind WhatIsMyIPAddress, the first search result, are less than thrilled by the change).

Hit up the link below to test it out and find your public IP address.
