I have iPhone 6 and on "Kik" messaging app, she sent me a link and I accidently clicked it ( the website grabs IP address and ISP) and she is saying that she'll fry my router, ddos attack ): what should I do? I'm so scared ): if I contact ISP for a new IP address, will it cost me? If so, how much?

1. Your IP Address is only registered to your ISP, your information is NOT searchable by your IP
2. You cannot "fry your router", your router simply takes packets as they come in and direct them to the target machine
3. DDOS does not work that way. A DDOS will prevent your from opening websites and surfing the web, but could never fry a router. It also takes hundreds to thousands of computers working in unison in order to properly execute a thorough DDOS on a typical website, even for a smaller system such as a home network you would need multiple computers executing the attack simultaneously.
4. Your ISP will listen to this story, tell you they'll fix it and nothing will change because there is no real threat here.
5. IF you want, report it to KIK!
PoohBearPenguin:
She didn't get "your IP address."

She got the IP address of your ISP and if she tries to "fry your router" she'll have a bad day when your ISP calls up her ISP and asks them to kick her off.

She can't do anything to you, your phone, or your router. Report the link to KIK if you want. Otherwise just ignore her.

Ivan:
Send her a link and say it's your facebook profile and you want to contact her, but instead take her ip.
Tomasz:
You can request a change to your IP from your provider. They shouldn't charge you. I doubt she can do much to you, no need to worry.
Dave:
She can't fry your router. I highly doubt she can ddos either. Looks like her scheme worked, you're acting like a fool over it.
Ahmed Hussaini:
I could give you hers if you want.
