I remember seeing somewhere here, a couple years ago, a way how to see what the real IP address is. I can't find the post now. Meaning when it says in the address bar www.google.com or whatever, you may really be elsewhere. You can type a line of code into the address bar and it will display the real website you're at, in case you are in some fake phishing site. Can someone please advise how to do this?
No but thanks. Maybe I mean web page name or something. I think it works like this. You can type in some line of code, like showrealurl//!%%#243.ip.hh into the address bar while you are reading a webpage, and a window meassage pops on the screen, "you are currently at <citibankfake.com/cards>"
Open the website you want to check, then replace the address in the URL bar with the following and press Enter.
A popup will appear giving you the true address, which you can compare against the one you're using. If they are different, then it's possible you are at a spoofed URL or forged website.
douchrti, I hope you didn't take it that I edited the version that everyone downloads - as in the developer edit :sayno: I'm not the developer of the extension but I just bumped it up by editing the files which is v.easy once you know and most extensions will work like that. :grin:
Here's what I get after my installing it, just like ceri does in IE (obviously my theme is different so it'll look different because mine is the system default theme and I always resize my pics before posting to 1024x768 as they're better suited to most people and easier viewing :sayyes
