Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is the company that provides you access to the internet, and it’s essential to know who they are because it affects your internet connection’s performance.
Here are some easy ways to find out who your ISP is:
- check your internet bill
- read info on a router or modem label
- use an online IP checker — not only will it show your current public IP address but also your ISP, location, operating system, and browser.
ISPs come in different types, each with its advantages and disadvantages. However, whichever type your ISP is, they can track your online activities and even sell your data to third-party companies. To protect your online privacy, use a VPN — it encrypts your internet traffic and hides your online activities from your ISP.
