I said something not long ago about someone and it was bad. It was said out of anger and I said things that I really shouldn't have & I'm so sorry. It was a personal , private thing. Anyway, can my cell be traced someway to find out who I am , live ?? I really don't know & new to this. Any help is appreciated . Thank u..

It might take about 1-2 years to get your IP # then how could you find out who phone it even is unless you took then to court

It's very easy to track, if someone feels they have been defamed they can contact topix and they will hand over the ip, and the phone company that owns the ip can identify the user, tracing phone #'s that sent messages to topix in that time frame on that IP.

so I can do the same thing if someone is causing me grief ? There is someone but they have a computer. I'm just not very knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff . Theres a man that's always talking about who went to court & why & then rubs it in ! It is awful. Goin to court is stressful enuff and then 4 someone to talk about it on topix is hard to handle. Sometimes I hate computers ! Thank u.

You can not unless what they are saying is not true. If it is the truth you can not do anything legally.

You may be able to get them for harassment, but that would have to be proven in court. That can get pretty expensive, because you would probably have to hire a lawyer, I don't know of any programs that provide free lawyers for harassment.

They also if they can get your phone number, usually police officers or parents they can track you. The're computer programs with street maps that can track you down to the house, or other location you are in right now, the phone has to have gps on it to locate you that fast. The police can track your cell phone by the towers the cell phone companies us, they triangulate from two or three towers and get your general area, street that way.

The software that parents can use to track cell phones is very interesting, you can set and watch a street map in real time. You can watch every place, address, store, anyplace they go, how long they stay an when they leave. Just Google: parental cell phone tracker.

Law enforcement have similar software to track cell phones. Law enforcement now have a program once they get your computer information, they don't have to have your computer or cell phone, just the cell phone other internet appliances id information, they can use a software program to go out on the internet and get every bit of information that appliance posted, read, every email, every picture, every website, everything.

Plus people gossip about it around town. Is it illegal for a friend to tell u that someone was in court today? No it's not. It's public news

Wrong. Try getting an IP address from topix, they will laugh at you. All you need to do is use other peoples free wifi and it can't be traced. IP address doesn't give an actual physical address. Police cannot trace an IP address without a warrant. That would be a violation of the 1st amendment. Much B.S. Has been printed about this on other articles. Most idiots like Sam doesn't know what he's talking about.

If you have a registered device, cell phone, computer or other appliance that can go on the internet it has a registration key attached to the software it uses that is individual to each installation, usually that can be used on a maximum of three devices. If you have a computer for instance with windows vista left click on start, go to computer right click, go to properties left click, You will see a number that is called product ID or product key that is put out in every communication you make, that or your email you give them this information when you register your computer for the first time.

For example since we are on Topix, I'm using Google browser right now, to see the information your giving up browsing on Topix right click on a blank area on the screen, I go usually to the left. Left click on (select element) at the bottom of the drop down, Elements will have a time stamp and ip: address go down to cookies under resources, local storage and the cookies will be there, they tell everything you do and report back to the websites more than one on many websites. Also I ran across somewhere your email address you used to register shows up, allot of information you give up online.
