Top 4 Methods To Get Someone’s IP Address on Skype

2) Use Command Prompt

Since Skype is a computer-side software, when we establish a video or chat with someone, we can check the IP address established with us through the Personal Identification Number (PID). Skype’s PID seems to be 2848.

While using this method, try to ensure that the number of users online is small. If the users are too many, many IP addresses will be displayed.

Step 1: Open Skype and login into your account. Make sure the person you want to track is online.

Step 2: Launch the command prompt by clicking Win + R and type CMD on the command prompt dialog box. Then type “netstat-ano”. This command detects all the IP addresses connected to your computer. This helps to output the PID responsible for the connection.

Step 3: To find the program associated with the PID, type “task list” in the command prompt.

Step 3: Once you ascertain the PID of the other user in Skype, you can check the IP address connected to it.

Step 4: Open Skype; on the menu bar, click Skype, Preferences –> Advanced. Copy the “incoming connection port”. Then go and add it to the filter part in Wireshark. Click Apply, then click the green icon on Wireshark.

(00000 is the incoming connection port)

Step 5: Skype call the other user you want to track their IP address. When you go back to Wireshark, you will see many connected IP addresses. Click the red icon on the menu bar after getting the specific IP address of the other person. This stops the capturing and tracking process.

Conclusion

These are some of the most common ways to trace the IP address of the other user on Skype. However, even if you opt to track someone’s IP, don’t use it for illegal purposes. These should only be used to ascertain whether someone is saying the truth about their location. Skype allows you to see the phone number of the other call. You can use the Geo finder to know the specific root of the specific phone user.
