    The IP address can identify your Internet Service Provider. Your Internet service provider is able to identify who you are by your IP address. Generally this information is not given out freely by the ISP. However, it can be requested by law enforcement or a subpoena from an attorney.

    If you’re concerned you can contact your ISP about their policy on giving out this kind of information.
