An IP Address, or Internet Protocol Address, is a unique numerical identifier that is assigned to a device on a network. It serves as an address to which data can be sent and received, and is essential for communication and data exchange between different devices connected to the same network. IP Addresses are typically assigned by a network's administrator, and are configured in such a way that they are unique and cannot be shared between different devices. Furthermore, IP Addresses can be used to identify and track the location of a device, making them invaluable for network security.
