Cyber Mistakes you should Never Make – 35

Learn how to look up an ‘I.P. Address’.  You can do a search to find this crucial bit of evidence.   For example, Facebook is in Ireland.

What?

Go to https://ipinfo.info/html/ip_checker.php  among other sites which will tell you where a site is.

For example, in 2016 there were thousands of sites which were posting pro-Trump articles.   Where were they?  Many were in Macedonia.

Huh?

Yup.  Way over in Macedonia.  What do they know about what happened in a meeting between Trump and his advisors?  They didn’t.

There is a difference between the Washington Post whose website  is located in Washington, D.C. and a site which looks 100% American but is found at 5.32.183.255; which is in Macedonia.

In this way, you don’t make a complete fool of yourself quoting something concocted by folks wayyyy over there.

What do you think?
