That thing happened for more than three times.

Sometimes just opening another browser worked, sometimes I had to wait.

The first time this happened, I contacted MIF

That is really strange because none of your IP addresses are on any list.

My IP keeps changing always, somehow....

Your service provider is the one who gives you your IP. I have heard of them sometimes giving two people the same address at the same time.

Hi;

The latest one is called Reliance Communications, based in Mumbai.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Wow,amazing bobbym.

Hey.

It is not amazing at all.

So, does this mean anyone trying to locate me through my IP will end up in Mumbai?

Nope, I would not even say that one is correct. But we all are leaving a digital footprint.

Your service provider will have your address.

And what if I move out of my building and access the internet from a different city with the same modem?

Even if it's wireless modem, they can identify you based on the info received by the tower.

However, you can anonymize yourself to some extent using vpn, tor ..

Not through your IP. But your provider will immediately give out your home address when asked for it.

Anonymity, no longer exists.

But your provider will immediately give out your home address when asked for it.

Regardless of trying to know who is asking for it? Why should every person know it?

The internet was originally designed for a free and open exchange of information. Security was not really built in and is difficult to do. The same way hackers enjoy the freedom of being able to penetrate any machine so does law enforcement. Also, Bill has provided many backdoors in his operating system so that him and his pals can spy on us.

Yes, that is the main reason.

Why did Bill do that?

To sell the information to whomever will pay.

I am sure he makes it clear to all that his OS is for sale to any bidder. Witness how he allowed HP to butcher XP for a price. Also this is from a speech where he mentions the many backdoors in his OS. With each new version he tightens his grip.
