    What is an IP address? And why should you hide it?
    When you head out into public, to a coffee shop to meet friends or a convenience store for some supplies, you don't usually have your phone number or home address pasted to the back of your jacket. However, when you browse the internet, that's sort of what happens, except with your internet protocol (IP) address. Nothing would usually come of wearing your address prominently on your jacket, but that one time something did happen you'd wish you'd taken a precautionary step. In the case of an IP address, that step is hiding it from the public.
