    how can i trace someones ip address? ive been emailing someone back and forth and they claim to be someone but i dont know if they say who they claim to be???? how can i trace their ip address assuming theyre from the darkweb? could only law enforcement do this kind of tracing? if they have an email address only and theyre from the darkweb, who might be able to trace them to find out who they really are? to find out who they really are as theyre claiming? rsvp. thank you.

    IP address should show in email header. If not, there really isn't a way to find IP without police involvement.

    email header? so the police would be the only ones to determine who is really behind it all then???? no one else would have those capabilities apart from them? rsvp.

    If you know how to access the email header then yeah it should show their IP. Web based email may not show this though. If you are that worried about it, stop communicating with them.

    Do you really expect to do any meaningful investigative work if you are having to ask these questions?

    Even if you managed to get the header, and found an IP address.. it most likely means nothing. Its easy to spoof, and can appear to come from many places. It's not worth the trouble for innaccurate information.

    Just hope you know you're not being very subtle here. If you're doing sketchy stuff on the dark web then you're liable to get caught. We're not going to help you evade that. Locking this, question has been answered anyway. .
