How to Change My IP Address on a Public Network?

When using your mobile data:

Enable Airplane Mode:

Enable Airplane Mode:

Activating airplane mode on your device temporarily disconnects all wireless connections, including mobile data.

Wait a few seconds:

Allow the device to completely disconnect from the network.

Disable Airplane Mode:

Turning airplane mode off will reconnect your device to the nearest cellular tower, which might result in a change of your public IP address.

When using public Wi-Fi:

Switch to a different public Wi-Fi or use a VPN:

Switch to another public Wi-Fi network:

If available, try connecting to another public Wi-Fi. This usually provides a different IP address.

Use a VPN service:

Install and use a reliable VPN service to effectively change your IP address and enhance network security. VPNs route your internet traffic through their servers, providing you with an IP address from a different geographical location.

Use mobile data:

If the public Wi-Fi network is unreliable or insecure, you can turn off Wi-Fi and use your mobile data instead. This usually provides a different IP address than Wi-Fi.
