Can Facebook determine the IP address of a message sent from another Facebook user who is not my friend?

Re: Facebook Messages IP address
There are 2 ways to get the name and address from someone that sent you a Facebook message: 1) Have your attorney submit a subpoena to Facebook with good-cause to give you their name and address 2) As the person that sent you the message.

Hi, Can facebook find out the IP of fake profiles just by looking at a phone screenshot of the message? How can I find out the IP used only by a screenshot? The name could be a duplicate or more than that!!!!!

Re: Facebook Messages IP address
Hi. I have received a photocopy through the post of a FaceBook private conversation. Someone has made a duplicate of my account and sent private messages slagging my boss off maliciously to another user with their name cut out. It says the other copy is going to my boss and i will def lose my job if it does. Ive spoke to a policeman today unofficially but he says they could only trace it by ip from facebook if they have a link to the account. How can i get the link? Surely they can trace it without just by seeing the messages sent?

If a facebook account has been reported to facebook for spam then closed down and we can now not see any of the profile. Can the ip address still be traced by the user name?

Facebook would still be able to provide the IP address in response to your court-order or law enforcement request.

There is no court order tho and is there a way to get the ip address with out going through facebook?

Re: Facebook Messages IP address
No. But lets pretend for a minute that you could get the IP.. Can you tell us what you think you're going to do with it? Because, without more court orders, you know that it's pretty much useless, right?

You can get the ip address than you can see where the message was sent from But you need the right things

Sure you can trace it back to the address.. You just need a judge to sign a court order or subpoena to force the Internet Service Provider that owns the IP address to turn over it's (very private) customer information - just has been posted/commented here on this page several other times.

if i have a old facebook account that someone hacked and used it to send nude pictures of me to all the friends on that facebook.. is there anything i can do?
Anonymous Visitor (not verified)
Re: Facebook Messages IP address

No, unless you have a lot of money and an attorney.
Where did the nude pictures come from? Maybe next time, dont leave nude photos of yourself on Facebook?

Possible? Yes. easy or free? No.
Read through all of the other comments already posted and you will see how difficult/extremely improbable it is.

Tracking a Facebook Messages IP address
I was sent threats via Facebook from these girls on a fake profile. I was so shocked by the messages that after screenshoting them I deleted the messages. Obviously they did the same on their end and then proceeded to delete the profile. Because it's deleted I don't have any proof that it was them other than the pictures of the messages. Would I be able to track the IP address of the deleted Facebook account at all?

Re: Tracking a Facebook Messages IP address
Well it would easier to get if they were DEATH THREATS... If you still have the message Police can get a judge to sign an order for Facebook to provide location and ownership of PC etc. Had this happen to me and Police are working on it as we speak.

Re: Tracing a Facebook Messages IP address

You would need a law-enforcement request or court-order to Facebook to get you the IP address.
Then, since the IP address alone is useless, you will need another court-order to the ISP that owns that IP to force them to turn over the customer information.
If the IP address is a proxy or not in the United States, then it gets complicated.

No, you would not "know who ip address it is" but it doesnt matter because you can't get the iP address from Facebook.
