The IP of the Mac is a term widely used in the network, this refers to the acronym for Internet Protocol. This is the main element so that you can connect to a network, and thus identify all the users that are connected.

In this way, the IP is the number that allows identifying the number of people who are connected to the Internet. 

On your Mac you also have the possibility of knowing the IP number quickly, however, you should know that, there are public and private addresses, and for each of them there is a different process that you should know. 

In the case of the public IP address of your Mac, the process is easier than you think, you just have to write in the search engine What is my public IP? And immediately the number you are looking for appears on any of the Google pages.

Now, when it comes to a private IPIt is a slightly more complicated process, but you still have the possibility of knowing all the information. Best of all, anyone with a Mac can perform the query.

The first thing you can do to find out this information is to use the terminal and a specific command. In addition, you must follow the instructions that we leave you, below: 

  • You need to open the Terminal app. 
  • Once inside the application, type the command ''ifconfig''.
  • The next thing you should do is press the key ''enter''.
  • then write ''inet6'', and immediately you can see the IPv6 address.

On the other hand, if you want to see the IPv4, the steps are also very easy, you just have to make sure that you follow them correctly. 

  • Open the ''preferences'' of the System.
  • Then you must click on ''grid''.
  • And, at the bottom of your Wifi network status, you can see the IPv4 address.
