What is a UK IP address?

A UK IP address is an identifier assigned to your device when you‘re online that tells the sites you visit that you’re in the United Kingdom.

Normally provided by your internet service provider, your unique IP address, or Internet Protocol address, can reveal your real identity and location.

But you can easily change your IP address and your apparent location with a VPN, giving you more control over what sites and apps know about you and enhancing your anonymity online.

Use the IP address checker to find out what this simple string of numbers can reveal about you, if you don’t use a VPN.

Why get a UK IP address?

A UK IP address allows you to browse the internet as if you were in the United Kingdom. This is useful for accessing websites that use geoblocking to restrict their content to certain regions.

If your VPN doesn’t have servers in the UK, or isn’t optimized for maximum compatibility, you may lose access to these services whenever you connect. But a premium VPN like ExpressVPN is engineered to protect your privacy and security no matter what you’re doing online, whether you’re scrolling news sites, watching live sports, or streaming in HD from platforms like BBC iPlayer, Channel 4, or Now TV.
