IP Locator1.6.2

14 November 2009

Widget to find location of IP addresses.

Overview

IP Locator... Ever check your Weblogs and wonder where in the world is 84.112.1.125? (Answer: Vienna, Austria) How about 118.90.58.217? (Answer: Kerikeri, New Zealand) Wonder no more! Through the magic of geolocation, IP Locator takes that mysterious IP address and tells you where that hit to your Web site (or intruder on your network!) resides.

What's new in IP Locator

Version 1.6.2:

Note: This product is not compatible with macOS Yosemite and later.

  • Fixed a bug where latitude and longitude were sent to Google Maps in the wrong order for HostIP requests
  • Added IPGP.net as a geolocation provider

Very nice widget, I use it also to search who are the visitors from my website. If I find out that there are many visitors from a certain country, then I can ajust the website more to there needs.

Help me make IP Locator the best geolocation widget around! Please take 5 minutes to fill out my "super-short" survey. Thanks! http://andrew.hedges.name/widgets/preview.php -Andrew

Seems to pickup the last place you connected to the net through dial up! im now conected to wireless in london but it gives my old home town as a location. It's not the app's fault obviously but anyone know why this is happening just out of interest? oh, and is it possible to look up www.apple.com (for example) rather than an ip number to get a location?

Nice program, however, it would be better to make the widget a bit bigger as the font size is a little hard on the eyes.

Awesome little widget, nice thing to satisfy curiosity... NetBarrier does the same thing, so it is no way malicious. My only complaint is that it doesnt always pinpoint your actual location, but i guess that cant be avoided (and isnt the developer's fault)

There is nothing malevolent about IP Locator or DNSStuff.com, nor do I think the other user's comment meant to imply that there is. IP Locator simply takes an IP address (yours, by default) and looks up its parts in a database and returns the geographic location, if known. I believe DNSStuff.com uses a commercial database of geolocation information which -- it's possible -- may have been built (at least partially) in the manner described by the previous poster. However, there is nothing in this widget that returns any information about users (beyond an IP address) to me, DNSStuff.com, or anyone else for that matter. I applaud the efforts of our friends at hostip.info to create a free database of geolocation information, based on voluntary contributions. Right now, I believe the database used by DNSStuff.com is slightly more accurate. In any case, thanks for taking the time to look at IP Locator. Watch for some great new features in a future release including resolution of hostnames and mapping of locations! -Andrew, developer of IP Locator

I don't foresee a personal need for this software right now, but I understand being upset if you believe such software is designed to work in a way which seems to circumvent built-in, "free" technologies that do not skim personal information about the user. Hey... they might even delete this Comment! :P lol I went to the website, the description I saw does not appear to cull any more information than the user would give away simply by being on the internet... but if it IS designed in such a [previously stated] malevolent manner I'd avoid it at all costs...

Interesting to know what geolocator is actually based on: When you submit a form on the web for personal info the combination of your zip code (or equivalent) and IP address are sold onto companies to tie IPs to physical locations and that is how the database is built up.

Why not just open a terminal and type "whois" followed by the ip address. You get the name of the isp that is hosting that person as well as contact information for their abuse department in most cases.
