    Hi i used this program Mibbit, someone said i can see ur IP, can anyone do anything with your IP, or know where you go browsing?, can they hack me. I have a modem/router, but not sure if that's enough.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    unless there is some kind of malware running on your machine (for whatever reason) you've got nothing to worry about. I'm assuming you are using common sense and observe normal everyday security precautions

    They can see your ISP location (that is, your general location). You can, however, hide your "real" IP using TOR or with applications such as Hotspot Shield at the cost of some slowdown in your internet browsing. (But you can just use them on-demand).
