While trying to find my IP address on my favorite IP lookup website www.whatsmyip.org there is a tool on their website named “More info about you”. Being who I am I was curious and wanted to see what it new about me.
I have already known that it could determine you location based on IP lookup and what browser you are using but that stuff it know could be useful or just plain creepy. It knows my screen resolution, browser plugins, and my IP address hostname.
I guess looking at it, it doesn’t know that much. But it still knows a good bit coming from a website. I can see why having the computers screen resolution would useful for a website. It could and can auto adjust to the computers screen so everything would fit right.
Still it can find a lot about your computer. It might be creepy but there has to be a reason why it can do it.
