Get your public IP address - very fast!

In Node.js, it queries the DNS records of OpenDNS which has an entry with your IP address. In browsers, it uses the excellent icanhaz service through HTTPS.

Install

$ npm install public-ip

Usage

const publicIp = require('public-ip');

(async () => {
	console.log(await publicIp.v4());
	//=> '46.5.21.123'

	console.log(await publicIp.v6());
	//=> 'fe80::200:f8ff:fe21:67cf'
})();

API

publicIp.v4([options])

publicIp.v6([options])

Returns a Promise which resolves to your public IPv4 or IPv6 address. Rejects on error or timeout. A .cancel() method is available on the promise, which can be used to cancel the request.

options

Type: Object

https

Type: boolean
Default: false

Use a HTTPS check using the icanhazip.com service instead of the DNS query. This check is much more secure and tamper-proof, but also a lot slower. This option is only available in the Node.js version.

timeout

Type: number
Default: 5000

The time in milliseconds until a request is considered timed out.
