Introducing IPify API

IPify is a simple yet powerful API that provides users with their public IP address. With IPify API, developers can easily fetch their IP address and use this information to make customized solutions based on the user’s current location.

How to Use IPify API

IPify API has a straightforward usage. You only need to make a GET request to https://api.ipify.org with your API key, and you’ll get your public IP address in response. You can use any HTTP client, be it JavaScript, Python or any other language to call the API with your API key. In this blog, we’ll focus on how to use the IPify API in JavaScript.

To start, you need to have a JavaScript environment setup. You can use any modern web browser’s console or Node.js to execute the code. Here is an example of calling the API in JavaScript:

const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';
const url = `https://api.ipify.org/?format=json&apiKey=${apiKey}`;

    .then((response) => response.json())
    .then((data) => console.log(data.ip))
    .catch((error) => console.error(error));

The code above sends a GET request to the IPify API endpoint with your API key in the URL. It then parses the JSON response for your ip address and logs it to the console.
