    hi,
    I have the app NiceTrace, and it’s always showing different IP addresses pinging my phone. A lot are from ARIN, Markmonitor.com, etc. What the heck is going on??

    You are misinterpreting the information
    NiceTrace is a traceroute application for IOS /Ipad/IPhone that lets you see where sites that you are contacting are & the route that gets to them
    All the ones in your examples are your ISP
    Anything markmonitor will be Google related or possibly Microsoft.

    Nothing is pinging you. You are pinging the sites in question. That is the danger of using apps you don't need or don't understand. The only reason to use such an app, is to find problems when you are having trouble connecting to sites. A traceroute app will help pinpoint where the connection is failing.
