3 Ways to Track Users’ IP address on Whatsapp, Telegram, etc

Getting someone else’s IP address on the Internet requires the person to take a specific action, typically by clicking on a link or viewing an email or website.

This post will show you how to track someone else’s IP address on the Internet, regardless they are on Whatsapp, Telegram, Facebook, TikTok or online forums.

How to Track Someone’s IP address Online?

Here are the three (3) different ways to log someone’s IP address on the Internet.

Method 1. Tracking via sending a URL link

Action: The target/s need to click on the link for their IP address/s to be logged.

You can use this method to send a unique URL tracking link anywhere on the Internet, particularly useful when posting on chat apps (e.g. Telegram, Whatsapp, Signal), social media apps (e.g. Facebook, TikTok) and online communities (e.g. forums).

You can use any image link or even a Google Docs link.

If you want to use your own image, you can upload them first in ImgBB and copy the URL link.

Step 1: Go to the Grabify IP Logger homepage, paste your URL link and click <Create URL>.


Your unique tracking link will be created and ready for you to use on Telegram, Whatsapp, and other social media platforms.

New URL = Your unique tracking link to send to others (shown below in red arrow)

Access Link = Your tracking page for IP addresses


Once your target or anyone clicks on your unique link, you can see it under your Access Link.

Method 2. Tracking via your blog or your website

Action: Your target/s must visit your blog or website for their IP address to be logged.

If you own a blog or a website, you can use this method to track your web visitors or make someone visit a particular webpage or blog page.

For WordPress sites, you can install Visitor IP Tracker free plugin to track visitors’ IP addresses with email alerts set up.


The main features include the following:

  • Website Visitor GEO IP Tracking
  • Visitor IP email alerts
  • Visitor IP Changes Tracking and Computer ID Tracking
  • Visitor IP Blocking and Advanced Website Analytics

Method 3. Tracking via installing a phone monitoring app

Action: You must physically install the monitor app on the target’s phone.


Also known as a cell phone tracker, a phone monitoring app is the best way to track someone’s IP address, even if it changes from time to time. You can monitor the target/s over a long period.

The only caveat is that you need to install it physically on the target’s phone. However, if this is possible for your situation, this method is the best.

  • Monitor every keystroke and every app in real-time
