My IP History


My IP History is a free and portable application to quickly find out what is your current public IP. Its free, small, portable and a real alternative to checking online or digging into your network adapter.

It can be set to auto-check at any chosen interval and keeps a log file so you can see how your IP has changed over time. The minimum interval allowed is 15 minutes and it supports all versions of Windows.

The log file data is a comma separated list so you can easily import it into other tools and also shows the computer name, useful if you merge log files from different computers so you can identify the data from each one.

One possible use is to run the app from the startup folder so it runs when Windows starts and have it log your IP every hour or so then by the end of the week or month you can tell how it changed.

My IP History is fast and does not slow down your computer in any way. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

Windows security

When you first run the app on Windows 8/8.1, you will be presented with a security prompt, this is because the system does not know the app and also because the app is not signed with an Authenticode Certificate which most small developers like me don't have. But don't worry, the app is safe and if you have any doubt just check with the VirusTotal online scan which scans files and URLs pointing to files with the most leading Anti-Virus brands. It gives results for the file and the website the file is hosted on.


My IP History is a portable app so does not have or need an installer. When no longer needed simply delete the file(s) and you are done. It does not leave any traces behind.
