“Someone messaged on Facebook from a fake account telling on my boyfriend. He called some of my friends fat and racist and comments bad things on my album pictures. I have a feeling its one of the people i know. Can Facebook trace the IP Address of this person to find out who the hell is this? I’ve sent a message to Facebook but they are slow responders. I need to know now. Please help!”


I often see these kind of messages, Someone calling you/your friends “fat” and “racist”? Big deal. It’s the Internet, the most public of public places. It’s completely your fault for adding some “random dude” that you don’t know. You must understand how web applications work. Anyways here’s the way of finding someone’s IP address on Facebook:

[ * ] This Method no-more works. you can find the new way of getting IP Address here: http://www.hacker9.com/find-ip-address-fake-facebook-profile-user.html

Using NETSTAT to find IP address of that User.

To do so we will be using “netstat” command in windows. If you want to know the IP address of a specific person on facebook or orkut or any chat service, there is only one way: Just invite or ping him for a chat and while chat is ON open ‘Command Prompt‘ on your PC (Start >Run>cmd)

note: before trying this make sure you close all the other tabs in your browser. and only facebook is open. also if possible delete all the history and cache from your browser.

When command prompt opens Type the following command and hit Enter.

netstat -an

And you will get all established connections IP addresses there. Note down all the suspicious IP’s

The Next Step is to Trace that user using his IP address.

To do so we will be using IP tracer service. Go to the below address and paste the IP address in the box that says “lookup this ip or website”. It will show you the location of the user.


It will show you all the information about that user along with his ISP and a Location in the MAP. Now in the MAP Just click on “click for big ip address location” in the big picture you can actually zoom in. and try to recognize the area. If any serious matter just note down the ISP details in that page and contact them about the IP. they will respond you.

Other netstat commands:
-a Displays all connections and listening ports.
-e Displays Ethernet statistics. This may be combined with the -s option.
-n Displays addresses and port numbers in numerical form.
-p proto Shows connections for the protocol specified by proto; proto may be TCP or UDP.
-s option to display per-protocol statistics, proto may be TCP, UDP, or IP.
-r Displays the routing table.
-s Displays per-protocol statistics. By default, statistics are shown for TCP, UDP and IP; the
-p option may be used to specify a subset of the default.

    This shit is retarded. You’re going to get the IP Address to Facebook. Dumb asses.

    • kageeslin

      I assure you that is not a facebook assigned IP block. That is your local network. Dumbass!

    I am so happy that I was able to locate someone who is using a fake FB profile. Now the said person voluntarily deactivated the profile because I told him/her that I was able to locate him/her and by surprise, I was right.

    Thanks for this wonderful article!

    The best – and probably the easiest way – is to delete c:System32, then, go to the command line, and write ipconfig -> and here you’ll see the ip address.
