I’m sharing some websites with you that create a link you can send via social media or social engineering techniques and grab their IP Address instantly.

Build Your Own IP Grabber in PHP

These are the websites that generate a link for you.

If you’re interested in creating your own IP Grabber tool because you wanna use your own custom domain then here’s a sample code.

//IP Grabber
$protocol = $_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'];
$port = $_SERVER['REMOTE_PORT'];
$hostname = gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
//Print IP, Hostname, Port Number, User Agent and Referer To Log.TXT
$fh = fopen('log.txt', 'a');
fwrite($fh, 'IP Address: '."".$ip ."\n");
fwrite($fh, 'Hostname: '."".$hostname ."\n");
fwrite($fh, 'Port Number: '."".$port ."\n");
fwrite($fh, 'User Agent: '."".$agent ."\n");
fwrite($fh, 'HTTP Referer: '."".$ref ."\n\n");

Save that code inside or anywhere and it will create a log.txt file including information about your target.
