You probably want GeoIP services. Just google it. You need to be aware that IP addresses are usually dinamically assigned by the ISP, this means that whoever had that IP when requested it, doesn't have it any longer. It would still give you a rough idea of the location of the intruder (country).


Most hackers spoof their IP address, so it's most likely not even accurate, unfortunately.

Hacker mostly use ip changer while they hacking, tracing the ip of the hacker wouldn't be that helpful

Thanks guyz, so it is olmost impossible 4 me to locate tha person who hacked into my facebook account?
