somebody got my public IP address and my public IP address has changed. Here's question, if my public IP address has changed, does it mean I'm safe? And if the hacker still has my old public IP address will he still be able to trace any password I type and send information?( at least that's what I told

IP addresses are assigned by the Internet authorities to ISPs as blocks of addresses. Searching for the location associated with an IP address will tell the searcher the location of the ISP.

Your ISP will assign an IP address from the block they were assigned when you connect to your ISP (power up your modem and router). Most ISPs assign addresses dynamically to home users. This means that the address you have may change. Some ISPs will reserve an address from their allocation and always assign that address to you. There is often an extra monthly charge for having a fixed (static) address.

Only your ISP knows which public IP is assigned to you, and the times that a particular address was assigned to your connection. They will only release this information when their is a court order, and the information will be released only to accredited departments that are authorised to use the information.

If you do suffer any form of cyber attack, do not respond in any way to the attacker. If they believe that the attack is not working, then they will get bored and stop. You can always report problems to your ISP or to the police depending on what form the attack is taking.

I hope this helps.

You do not have an IP address. An IP address is allocated to your connection to the Internet. The IP address allocated to your connection can be changed at anytime. Everywhere you go on the Internet people can see the IP address you used to get there. That is how the Internet works. It is not a big deal. It is not a secret thing. It has nothing to do with you personally.

An IP address and a few cents or pennies gets them a VERY small bag of sweets. It means nothing.

Worst someone can do to it is DDOS it which is basically sending mass packets of information to it to make it go down. Or if you have holes or openings in your port the best they could do is possibly get into your computer. Or they can use that information to gain personal info on you such as address, name, DOB, etc to make something called a "dox" however, if it is static you can easily change it by restarting your modem. if not then I would suggest contacting your ISP to have it changed,

You're safe. Your external IP will change on occasion depending on the DHCP server's lease time. Usually about once a week, sometimes even longer (depends on the ISP). Once it changed, they have no way to get the new one, unless you allow them to get it again.

No need to tense about your safety. You are safe. But if you are really conscious about your safety, I suggest you to use Private proxy. It will help you to Anonymous and Encrypted Web Surfing. I am using Blazing proxies and happy with its performance.
