    How to Find Private and Public IP Address of Your Windows 10 PC

    information   Information
    An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is used to identify computers on the Internet and network. IP addresses can be either public or private.

    A public IP address is a unique address provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to identify your local network on the Internet. If your computer is connected directly to the Internet with no router sitting in between, your computerís IP address is a public IP address.

    A private IP address is assigned by your router to a PC or device on your local network. When a computer is assigned a private IP address, the other devices on the local network sees this computer via its private IP address. A private IP address can not be directly reached from the internet.
