Hello, computer geniuses. My mom made a forum post a day ago and it displayed a IP address under her post. As seen in the picture below.

Is that our IP address and how dangerous is it to give away your IP address to strangers?

That IP should not be published.

Depending on your router and ISP you may be able to get a different IP address by shutting down your router for a while.

Then when it is turned on again your ISP may issue a new IP address.

Will request that the Moderators mask the IP address you posted.
