If you want to know how to steal a Discord user's IP address, the best way is to use the IP resolver tool. You simply have to copy-paste the other user's details into the site and wait for it to show its results.
There's a common misconception that IP grabbers are illegal, but they're actually not. You can use one like the Grabbify IP logger to get someone's IP address.
I recently wanted to get a user's IP address because I suspected they were catfishing on one of my friend's servers. I ended up using the IP Resolver tool that I mentioned above to do this.
I discussed the steps I took below and outlined all the tools you can use to steal a Discord user IP address.
As mentioned, there are a couple of ways to obtain someone's IP from Discord.
Let's talk about them.
By far, the easiest way to grab a Discord user's IP address is through the IP resolver tool. You don't have to pay for it - it's completely free. Just remember that you can only use it while the other user is online.
In just a few steps, here's how you use it to steal someone's IP address:
Other than IP Resolver, another way to find someone's IP is through a grabbing tool. There are quite a few on the market, so you have to be careful about the one you choose. I recommend the Grabify website as it has worked for me.
To use the IP grabber site to get someone's IP address:
You should see all the user's information, including their IP address, along with some tracking features that will allow you to do some in-depth research.
Not many people realize this, but you can actually use your computer's Command Prompt to grab someone's IP address. However, this can't be used by everyone - it's exclusive to Windows users.
To use your Command Prompt to track IP address:
Lastly, you can use spoofed packets to get someone's IP address. Special tools like Wireshark can help you do this. It will perform protocol analysis on the Discord site or app to get other users' information.
However, compared to the other methods you can try, it's more complicated. The entire process could take a couple of minutes.
Here's what you do:
Here's the deal - IP Grabbing is not illegal. However, many people use it for illegal purposes. If a website is just grabbing your IP address to check your location to find out where traffic is generated from, this is not illegal.
Delivery services tend to grab your IP to find out where you are located, which is completely fine.
However, hackers tend to use IPs to steal information like bank details and try to log into social media platforms or track your online activities which are against the law.
While on the topic of IPs, you might be wondering how to IP ban another Discord user. You don't have to go out of your way and find a user's IP to do this. Instead, a regular discord ban automatically gets the job done.
Here's what you do:
Once done, any new accounts they open would be automatically banned too.
Answered below are some popular questions.
No, Discord does not leak your IP address or even your location. For someone to get your IP address, they will have to work around the Discord site and use one of the methods that I discussed.
At the end of the day, Discord hosts its own servers, which adds a layer of protection.
There are a couple of ways you can hide your IP while on Discord. I've run through two of my favorites below.
VPNs are the best way to protect your IP from users. You will essentially tunnel your connection to a server abroad, which will then encrypt and hide your IP address in the process.
Just note that not all VPNs are trustworthy. You should always use trusted choices, like Nord.
Instead of a VPN, you can use a proxy server. Proxy servers work similarly to VPNs, as they act as intermediaries between the internet and your device. They ultimately work like a roadblock to protect your IP address.
You can also choose a specific location to bounce your connection to.
You can get a friend's IP address from Discord easily. The most popular method is to use an IP resolver. It will allow you to get someone's IP directly from their Discord ID, plus you don't have to be tech-savvy to use it.
Instead of IP resolver, you can use Grabbify or the Wireshark program to grab IP addresses.
When it comes to Grabbify, you will be able to get anyone's IP, as long as they click on the grabber that you sent. You will have to create a URL from a valid URL, like a YouTube video, which should make them click on it.
I have also run through whether IP grabbing is legal or not, and some additional information, like whether getting a user's location is illegal.
Hopefully, you found this guide on how to get someone's IP from discord useful.
