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 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 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 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) N hours ago.)

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

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.)

    @Pop You should probably post that comment to the question, or just edit it into the question.

  • Oh. Ok. I'll leave it for the next answerer then :P. There's really no way of knowing that from the question...

    Looks like this went away when profile pages were redesigned?
