How To Find Someone’s IP Address From Zoom

There are some steps that you can follow to find someone’s IP address from the Zoom app:

1. Using Grabify.link Tool

Step 1: Open the Grabify Tool

First, you go to the search bar of Google or your device and type the Grabify.link, click on the exact Grabify.link which leads to a platform that says “Checking your browser before forwarding to grabify. link”. Now you are at the correct link.

NOTE: The other links do not always work and there are many fake links out there that you need to be aware of.

Step 2: Short a Link & Send

Now choose a link that will be shortened & sent to the person. The link should be anything related to the person you’re sending it to. It may be something, some work-related file, document, PDF, screenshot, pic, or video. Next, you go to the Grabify website you had on standby. Then, you will find a place after scrolling a bit in which you will enter the URL, and the tool will automatically shorten it for you. You have to remember to save the tracking code that you will get with the link for future use in the process.

Step 3: Get Tracking Code

Once you get the link, which is automatically shortened from the app, send it to whoever you choose to through the Zoom app. The user will now click it, and then the Grabify link does all the major work and will capture all their data, including the IP address.

Step 4: Find the IP addresses of Zoom Users

Now it’s finally when you get all their data. Now you type the tracking code that you saved and received in the previous step (which is the major part to remember) in the empty field on the Grabify page. Just find it by scrolling down a little and clicking the “Tracking Code” option. The app will then show you all the data of the user, with their tracking code IP address.

2. Using WIRESHARK IP Grabber

Step 1: Get the WireShark Tool Downloaded

First of all, at starting, type Wireshark and go to the Wireshark website and then navigate the download option and download the application to your computer, PC, or any device you might be using. Complete the installation but do not open it yet now.

Step 2: Connect with Networks

Once you open the Wireshark window, you will now see different networks connected to your computer. Now you will notice either Wireless or Ethernet connections that are actually transferring data to your computer. Keep a note of this because this will be important for you later. To make your work easier, what you can do is close all other apps on your computer/PC, before you start storing the IP with the Wireshark app. You will just need your Zoom IP number/address. It’s best to make sure to close all background apps because if they are open in the background it will be harder to find the IP you are needing exactly.

Step 3: Turn On Monitor Mode

Monitor Mode is a special mode on Wireshark that allows you to monitor any incoming connections and traffic. This way, you will capture the traffic from Zoom. You will see packages coming in and out of your computer. If the data is not encrypted, you can see lots of them. To turn on this mode, click on the traffic from your computer. You will see packages that come to your computer via this app. Once you turn on the Monitor mode, refresh it so you could only see recent packages. This will help you to calculate your Zoom traffic.

Step 4: Find Traffic/Users on Zoom there

To capture traffic from Zoom, you need to open your app and log in. After this, connect with the person whose IP you want to get, and once you do it, follow the next steps until the call is finished. When you start the call, the Wireshark app will start seeing your Zoom traffic and of course, the IP of the user you need. Be sure to note down the time when the call started! You will need it later to analyze the data.

Step 5: See all IP Details

Once you are connected to the person on Zoom, their computer will share packages with yours. Refresh the Monitor Mode and search for the time when your call started. This way, you will find your Zoom traffic. Another way to analyze data will be to enter “Zoom” in the search bar below. The app will then show all the traffic from the app, and you will easily see all info about the caller, including their IP.
