IP address

I have a fear that a foreign entity is monitoring my computer via the IP address.  It is possible to get a new IP address and still keep the same email account?

Re: IP address

Your email address is independent of IP address. If you want a new IP address, you will have to enter a ticket request for one (not here in this forum.)

Are you using a router that has a MAC address cloning feature ? If so, you can clone a different MAC address in to it. This will force a change of your Comcast assigned WAN / public IP address.
