If we change our IP address then I think people can do illegal activity from there computers and they will never get caught.
Is it true? Or there is any other way to catch these hackers.

You can only change the IP address of your computers which are connected to a LAN. These IP addresses are called Private IP address. But the IP address which will be recognised over internet is call Public IP address. You cannot define Public IP address. These Public IP addresses are given by the Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Private IP address Ranges:
Class A> to
Class B> -
Class C> -

Any IP address which is out of this range is called Public IP address

Thanks for the post,Vipin R.As you said we cannot define the public IP address that we want but we can change it.The External/Public IP is got from the ISP and is classified into static and dynamic where static IP does not tend to change and the dynamic IP varies each time the modem is switched ON and OFF.If you have a dynamic IP then there are chances every-time you log on to the internet you are assigned a new IP.The duration to the change in IP depends on your ISP.The public IP of the user is displayed on a visit to
