Obtain details from the ISP
Every Internet user is ultimately customer at a so-called "Internet Service Provider". An ISP has the address of its Internet users. To charge for the usage of the Internet.
The ISP assigns every Internet user an IP address. Computers need that IP address to exchange data. Your IP address is currently 18.104.22.168. Some ISPs assign IP addresses temporarily, to distribute IP addresses among customers. At a specific moment in time, however, there is only one unique user of an IP address.
In the Netherlands, ISPs are required to send a daily list of personal data that belongs to an ip address to a central register. This Centraal Informatiepunt Onderzoek Telecommunicatie (CIOT) makes sure the information is available to investigative bodies, for instance to solve crimes.
Geographical location of an IP address
On the Internet, you can request to which ISP an IP address belongs to. There is often a geographical location included in the results. This is the location of the ISP's terminal, the Internet end user often remains out of sight.
In case of harassment the connection point of the ISP in practice helps many victims sufficiently to conclude who's harassing them.
Third Party Services
When computers exchange data, they need each other's IP address. On the Internet, we often use third-party services such as Facebook, Twitter, Gmail or a marketplace. The exchange of data is routed via the third-party computers, rather than directly from sender to receiver.
Some e-mail services send the IP address of the original sender from the message but mostly you won't get your hands on the originators IP address. The owners of third-party computers only hand over the IP address and related information to the police in case of a criminal police investigation. From society, we hear that it's often too much trouble for the police to request information from third parties.
Reporting to the police
- date and (exact) time
- Email and Internet addresses (URL)
- user name and nickname(s) of people involved
- prints of chat logs and messages
- saved SMS messages
- screenshots (via print screen or take a picture)
The report is usually the beginning of a criminal police investigation.
From society, we hear it takes too much effort to investigate at third-party services who did it based on this information. IP trap therefore helps you get the IP address of the offender yourself. Police now just need to address the offender's ISP within six months. We love to read your experiences with these follow-up steps!
