    Default ip address of the mobile app

    may i know if there is IP address of the mobile app? or can the developer detect the app's IP or mobile's IP? to detect location of the app to login?
    for browser, developer can detect the IP and find out the country the user locates. for mobile , can developer find out the location of user?

    What environment is the device operating in? Is it in a LAN controlled by a router? It is possible to get a device's IP address on the LAN but I do know know how to get the IP address of the router on the internet.

    I am not familiar with this topic. It may be better to ask it here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/java
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Basically, an IP address is a unique identifier assigned to each device connected to the internet. In most cases, it's a string of numbers that looks something like this: 192.168.1.1. When it comes to mobile apps, though, it's a bit more complicated. Most mobile devices will have a different IP address for each of the various wireless networks that it connects to. So if you're using the same app on two different wireless networks, it'll have two different IP addresses. If you're interested in finding out the IP address of a particular mobile app, it's best to check the app's settings or contact the app's developer directly.

    Yes, it is possible to detect the IP address of a mobile app. It usually depends on the type of mobile app and the way it is built. Generally, the app developer can detect the IP and mobile's IP to detect the app's location. In the case of a browser, the developer can detect the IP address and determine the user's location. It is important to note that the developer's code has to be configured in order to be able to detect the user's location. In addition, you may want to check out https://smartengines.com/. They provide a list of AI-powered products to help with tasks related to mobile apps, such as location detection. It might be beneficial to take a look and see if their products can be of help to you.
