IP Geolocation Software
What is IP Geolocation Software?
IP geolocation software matches an IP address to a geographic location or geolocation.
Every device with internet access has an IP address. This address often indicates the general geolocation of the device. In some cases, an IP address is associated with a specific company. Businesses use IP geolocation to prevent fraud, identify sales leads, deliver regional content, and more.
Vendors of IP geolocation software often have proprietary algorithms for determining IP geolocation. The often offer an API for customized access to their service. Vendors may also provide databases of IP addresses linked to suspicious activity, fraudulent access, or anonymizing services.
Alternatively, some vendors use their databases to trick other IP geolocation software. These vendors provide access to IP addresses with specific geolocation. Their tools change the IP address of a device or distribute activity among many IP addresses. Businesses may use this software to monitor ad campaigns or scrape information from websites.
