HubPages shows my IP

    I guess it was when I was posting a comment, HubPages showed my IP. That was scary, why do they have to do that? Can other users also see it? why do they need to show-off my IP? Can they have it for themselves (and not show it to the world)?

    Can someone shed dome light on why they show it? and also can everyone see my IP?

    It is shown only to the hub owner, so he/she may deal with spam/malicious comments more efficiently.

    It's under the TOS that you agreed to when you signed up...didn't you read all of it? Just kidding, just kidding! big_smile I certainly didn't read the entire thing lol.

    I don't really love it, either, however the only people that can see it are the ones that own the hub that you're posting the comment to. Don't worry, not everyone can see your IP.

    Hope this helps. smile
