How to Trace the Sender’s IP & Location In Gmail


Sometimes, we receive emails from unknown sources or person, and before replying them, we want to know the details of the person who have sent us a message. Few email service providers like Yahoo Mail & Hotmail includes the IP addresses of the sender in the headers, but Gmail hides the IP Address.

Now the actual question is – If Gmail hides the sender’s IP Address, how can we determine the geographic location of the sender? Well, there’s an option to determine the sender’s geographic location in Gmail, but the process is a bit complicated.

First of all, let me tell you that Gmail doesn’t provide any default option to trace the sender’s IP Address. So, we need to manually check the IP Address. However, the good thing is that you didn’t need to connect any third-party app with your Gmail account to trace the sender’s IP Address.
