Do you want to know how to find your Mac IP address? then this article is for you

This article discusses how to locate your Mac’s private and public Internet Protocol (IP) numbers.

 

HOW TO FIND YOUR MAC IP ADDRESS

The quickest and easiest way to find your public IP address is to open your web browser of choice and perform a Google search for “what is my IP address.” The search results page should display your public IP address at the very top in its own separate box.

If you’d rather not use Google, you can also manually locate your public IP address.

  1. Select the Apple icon in the top-left corner of the screen in your Mac’s Finder.

  2. Select System Preferences from the drop-down menu.

  3. Select the Network icon.

  4. Select your internet connection from the column on the left (this will appear as Ethernet, USB, or Wi-Fi depending on the nature of your connection).

  5. Select Advanced.

  6. From the Advanced menu, select the TCP/IP tab.

  7. Locate your router’s address (below Subnet Mask) and copy the number.

  8. Open your web browser and type in or paste your router’s address into the navigation bar, then press Return. This will take you to your router’s settings page.

  9. Check either Connection Status or WAN (Wide Area Network) in your router’s settings to locate your public IP address. You’ll likely also have to log in as an administrator when accessing your router to be able to view these options.

Note: Not all router settings pages are the same and can vary depending on the brand. If you can’t find your IP address right away, look around in some of the other sections—they might use different category names than what’s listed here.

HOW TO FIND YOUR MAC’S PRIVATE IP ADDRESS

Finding your private IP address is a little simpler than manually locating your public one—though not as easy as a Google search.

  1. Select the Apple icon in the top-left corner of the screen in the Finder.

  2. Select System Preferences from the drop-down menu.

  3. Select the Network icon.

  4. Select your internet connection from the column on the left (this will appear as Ethernet, USB, or Wi-Fi depending on the nature of your connection).

  5. You’ll find your private IP address under Status and above Network Name.

Note: You can also use Terminal to locate your private IP address by typing in ipconfig getifaddr en0 for a Wi-Fi connection or ipconfig getifaddr en1 for an ethernet connection.
