Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think that as a matter of security (in the Firesheep age) I'd like to see the last IP address from which my account was accessed next to my name, somewhere in the top bar. I'd also ideally like a history of my IP addresses (available only to me) in my account summary.



Right now, it shows the "last activity from N hours ago." or "Last activity from this IP address N hours ago."

I want two changes. Firstly, I want to see the last IP address even if it's the same one, as in: "Last activity from this IP address ( N hours ago.)

Also, I want a new tab with all of my recent IP addresses, similar to Gmail.

It no longer shows "last activity from X". – Monica Cellio Jun 24 '14 at 15:41

I think this is a really good idea, and I'd like to see a history of IPs too.

Edit: I think this could work well even as a tab in the user column, instead of a separate window.

Putting it next to where the user feed could work well.


Obviously this could be designed better, but it could be in gray and show a popup like:

IP Dialog

You can already see it in your profile page:

OP knows about that -- not downvoting or anything, he said it in chat -- but per this question, he wants it displayed more prominently, and wants a history. (A previous answerer already posted this answer, but deleted it after I posted a comment much like this one.) – Pops Dec 3 '10 at 17:16
@Pop You should probably post that comment to the question, or just edit it into the question. – Grace Note Dec 3 '10 at 17:17
Oh. Ok. I'll leave it for the next answerer then :P. There's really no way of knowing that from the question... – Kobi Dec 3 '10 at 17:19
Yes, I know about that. @Kobi - What is unclear from the question, I'll gladly clarify. – Moshe Dec 3 '10 at 18:11
Looks like this went away when profile pages were redesigned? – user164291 Aug 26 '12 at 18:56
Yup, this doesn't exist for long years by now. – Shadow Wizard Jan 18 at 17:38
