How to Identify Anonymous Trolls’ IP Addresses

We have a success ratio of 80%-90% in positively recognizing IP addresses for unidentified antagonist internet users. In most situations, It is now possible to collect much more evidence, enabling us to identify those responsible for illegal or abusive internet behavior positively.


Anonymous criminal and civil wrongdoing via the internet is a 24/7 headache that is impossible to escape as long as your enemy remains anonymous.


Identifying IP addresses and other user data from trolls that harass you or disrupt your business is easy for our cybercrime detectives. Each method is legal, admissible in court, and highly persuasive. Most trolls will often remove the infringing material once they are discovered out of fear of criminal or civil prosecution. Alternatively, if they continue, we can assist you in seeking criminal charges or injunctive remedies.

How to Identify IP Addresses and Other User Data

There are numerous types of digital evidence that can be encrypted, shielded, or otherwise concealed. We detect IP addresses and other user data from fake review authors, cyber stalkers, and corporate leaks via Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Snapchat, and other social media platforms.

The phrase “rule in/rule out” only applies when there is distrust. For example: by capturing the IP address of the anonymous opponent and matching it to the suspect, we have “ruled in” their identity. The opponent may also be excluded if they sent the message from a different IP address, device, etc., implying that he or she is someone other than the suspected person.

In & Out of Court IP Address Identification

The concept of infinite protection and carte blanche for all unknown expressions (dressed as “net neutrality”), especially when harmful, is ridiculous. It is reasonable to suppose that supporters of such ideas have never experienced the financial and emotional destruction caused by these fierce assaults. Because of the constant nature of the postings, quick accessibility through search engines, and viral republication, the development of anonymous, free-for-all online character offense platforms has compounded the victims’ suffering tenfold.

Regardless of the cowardly, malicious minority’s motivations, strong First Amendment rights are at stake when a subpoena threatens an anonymous blogger’s privacy. Before a judge can remove the veil of anonymity, the US Constitution (and comparable clauses in other countries) requires a demanding standard. At a bare minimum, the court’s verdict on whether to let the discovery of sensitive identifying information from a third party often includes the following elements:

  1. The plaintiff must establish a strong possibility of success on the merits of their defamation suit.
  2. The plaintiff must show that the balance of hardship favors the plaintiff; and
  3. The plaintiff must show that the subpoena is the least intrusive option available.

These factors ensure that a plaintiff cannot force a website provider to disclose confidential identifying information when disclosure is neither necessary nor fair to a defendant. The web providers have not committed criminal or civil wrongdoing while keeping the right to recover damages for legitimate defamation claims in mind.

Data Uncovered During Cyber Investigations

Our investigation will uncover the following information, but is not limited to:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address (es)
  • Specifications of the device
  • The device’s unchangeable hardware
  • GPU, GPU vendor, retina, height, width, and other details
  • The device’s location and language settings

An IP address will try to supply you with information about the following:

  • Provider of Internet Access (ISP)
  • The hostname of the IP
  • The country
  • The region/state
  • The town
  • The area’s approximate latitude and longitude
  • The area code for the region
  • Any documented or standard services that use that IP

Once captured, the geographical area of the IP address depends on open-source information provided by services such as InfoSniper. This information will give you the city and ISP of the sender. Using an IP address does not provide you with street names, addresses, or phone numbers, but it can provide a good indication of where the offender lives. The IP addresses connected to mobile phones are often less precise regarding their location. Even so, we can continue to add value to this information as the investigation progresses.

How to Identify IP Addresses Hidden Through Proxy, VPN, & Tor

People that engage in evil activities and harassment are usually tech-savvy and may hide behind a proxy, VPN service, or the Tor Network to conceal their identity. In this scenario, uncovering any useful information about the opponent is difficult. When a user hides behind a VPN service or a proxy, not even Google can access the user’s true IP address. However, our skilled cyber investigators can bypass virtual private networks to uncover someone’s true internet identity.

What You Can Do With The Proof

With the proof, you may get the harasser to stop the cop’s issuing a warning. Otherwise, it would help if you subpoenaed the Internet Service Provider for user information about the antagonist’s IP address.

Our lawyers assist our clients with drafting subpoenas for ISPs as well as assisting them in subpoenaing them. Over the years, we have drafted hundreds of subpoenas and know exactly what to request.

In Brief
