How to Hide IP Address on iPhone (2022)


Do you want to hide your IP Address on your iPhone? then this article is for you

This article discusses how to conceal your IP address on an iPhone using the built-in tools and what happens when you do so.



The iPhone gives you a number of free, built-in tools to hide your iPhone’s IP address from websites, ad trackers, and other parties looking for your data. Your IP, or Internet Protocol, address is a unique address assigned to your iPhone when it’s online that can be used to track your activity, build a profile of you, and target ads or sell data.

One of the most important places to hide your IP address is the Safari web browser. That’s where the vast majority of parties that want to track your IP will try to access it. Follow these steps to hide your IP in Apple’s pre-installed Safari browser:

  1. Tap Settings.

  2. Tap Safari.

  3. Tap Hide IP Address.

  4. On this screen, you have two options:

    • Trackers and Websites: This blocks advertising technology that follows you across many different websites, plus the websites you visit directly, from tracking your IP.
    • Trackers Only: This blocks only advertising trackers, but lets websites see your IP. You might need this if a website requires that you be in a certain country to access it (your IP can be used to determine what country you’re in) or if you have work websites that are configured to specifically work with your IP.

    Note: Tap the option you prefer and your IP will be hidden in Safari.

While Safari is how trackers track your IP, it’s not the only way. Advertising trackers can be inserted invisibly into emails sent to you. Apps can do all kinds of tracking, including your IP, to help create user profiles that are sold to target ads (App Tracking Transparency can help with this). So, if you’re really serious about hiding your IP and maintaining your privacy, you need to take another step.

Apple’s iCloud Private Relay is similar to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and can hide your IP address. It’s included with all paid iCloud+ plans (which start as low as US$0.99/month). When iCloud Private Relay is enabled on your iPhone, your IP address is hidden from everyone—even Apple!

To enable iCloud Private Relay, first make sure you have iCloud+ and then follow these steps:

  1. Tap Settings.

  2. Tap [your name].

  3. Tap iCloud.

  4. Tap Private Relay.

  5. Move the Private Relay slider to on/green.

  6. Tap IP Address Location.

  7. This lets you control how your iPhone appears on trackers and websites. This is important if you need to be in a certain country and/or time zone to use certain sites or programs. Tap either Maintain general location or Use country and time zone.
