    I think someone is tracking me using my IP address. How can I block them or what can I do to stop them if anything?:confused:

    can you be more specific as to what you think they are doing with your IP

    does your broadband provider - give you a fixed IP - or is it DHCP

    if DHCP - just log off the network - ie disconnect the router or the modem and when you log back on again after a couple of hours you should get a new IP

    Unless you use software specifically designed to mask your IP address, it's not difficult to get and cannot be used to track you personally as in your name, address, and phone number. Only your ISP knows which IP address was assigned to you when, and in order for someone to get that information, they'd need a court order.
