When you connect to the internet using an Android smartphone, your device is assigned a unique ID that allows service providers to keep track of your activities online. You can use this IP address to locate your device and track it as well. This ID is called an IP address and every device is assigned a unique number to keep the activity discrete.
However, there are many people out there who try and hack into your device using your IP address and it can lead to a host of problems and even loss of sensitive data from your device.
Luckily, there is a way for you to change the IP Address of your Android Smartphone and that is what we are going to look into in this tutorial.
