Is there any way to mask my IP for an API request?

What is an IP address?

Your IP address is a set of numbers unique to the internet network you are using. While surfing the internet, there is essentially a dialogue created between ‘users’ and ‘servers’. When accessing a web browser, data is automatically requested which allows servers to provide users with adequate responses. Your IP address informs the servers of who is behind the requests.

In short, IP addresses allow clients to access servers and servers use these same IP addresses to send the data back to you and not another device by mistake. The communication between IP addresses and servers is part of the TCP/IP model, which determines how all devices on the internet interact with one another.

5 best methods for hiding your IP address:

  • Using a VPN Service

  • Connecting to Tor Browser

  • Leveraging Proxy Servers

  • Taking advantage of Free/Public WiFi

  • Getting a new IP from your ISP
