What is an IP logger, and how does it work?
A common type of logger is a computer program or tracking software that records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of computers from which you have received data. This can be done with several programs, such as e-mail software, web browsers, and chat clients.
A program or tracking software will store IP addresses in logs for a predetermined amount of time (usually indefinitely). Imagine logging each call to your telephone on 4 pieces of paper – now imagine how much space that would take up if those logs were stored on your hard drive. That’s what an IP logger does. Now imagine if all these masses of data could somehow be condensed into 2 pages so they take up less room on your hard drive – taking them from being cumbersome to manageable. Well, that’s what a web-based IP logger does – it stores your data on a remote server for you where you can log into and retrieve it whenever you need to.
