still he can? even if it was already deactivated? now that he already filed a case in the nearest police station, is the process of obtaining the IP address be near successful?
i repeat my question.. please answer
>>> does using two facebook accounts in the same mobile device contain same IP address? Is IP address can be found in the messages sent even if the other account is already deactivated?
Even when an account id deactivated, Facebook still has the info.
The process of submitting a law enforcement request is up to the police. You would have to ask them what the status is.
Using two accounts on one device would have the same IP address, unless the IP address of the device changes, which happens often on mobile devices.
what if that acct that was used from harassing was already deactivated, and the other account that was used in the same mobile is still active, does the IP address of the messages sent to him changes overtime if he keeps chatting to the victim? or is it the same?
because i read that if you put your phone on an airplane mode, its IP address changes.
Facebook would have a record of the IP address that was used to send any particular message.
Basically, the IP address is near useless without additional court orders to the Internet Service Provider that owns that IP address forcing them to turn over information about who the customer that was using the IP address at that particular moment.
Facebook has a record of the IP address used for any particular message.
If you are on the internet, you have an IP address, and your provider has a record of what your IP address was at any given time.
I have read a lot of the questions of people wanting to find the ip address and the answers expressing the difficulty in doing so. I, however, have a different question relating to this topic
I know a cop who has been cheating on his wife. I want to message her and tell her about his infidelity. Now, I know that the only practical way to get the ip address of someone is being in law enforcement and through a court order. I know that a cop has to have a good reason to get a court order. But if he has a friend who is a judge or knows someone working in the police department that is really good with computers could he get my ip address? How much easier is it for a cop to get an ip address than a regular citizen, if there was nothing illegal happening? Thanks.
The IP address is nearly worthless alone..
He would have to get the IP address, then figure out what company owns the IP address, then get the customer information from the company.
Most companies require either a court order or a "law enforcement request", so for a dirty cop with some dirty friends, this could be pretty easy.
However, it's not difficult (IF YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING) to go somewhere like a public library, sign-in to a free web-proxy, create a fake/throwaway email account, and send a message to someone, making it very difficult if not impossible to track down your identity. The key words are "if you understand what you are doing" .. these things are not difficult, but neither is swallowing swords.. if you dont know/understand what you are doing things can get ugly.
It is possible if they find some way to activate and pull information from Location Services, which is nearly impossible. You can make it impossible by turning off Facebook in Privacy - Location Services.
I think they're just lying to you to scare you, nothing to worry about.

as far as i know, it's not possible to get the IP address because you are on a mobile device.. But, let's pretend that she could get your IP address.. Knowing your IP address does not allow anyone to find out who you are without a court order to the internet service provider.
Unless you can afford a handful of court orders, then no.
But you can report the messages to Facebook by using the report link and they'll most likely deactivate the account and ban the email account used to sign up for it. If it's bad enough Facebook may provide the IP and email information to police for further investigation without a court order.
I have received messages from a person on facebook. The person was initially using his true identity for FaceBook. However due to some reasons i had to block him. However i have been obtaining various new friend request from different fake, newly created FaceBook profile. I want to know whether the these messages are coming from the same computer.
