I don't know how or why they would do this, by the way there were no threats known about, but somebody thought it would be funny to fake sponsor my YouTube channel at a live stream and then threaten to find my ip and to prove it named off my city on a different account after I had banned him on his first... can't go to bed, should I be worried?

If it is the public IP address issued by your ISP, you can easily find it, and the geographic location.

 

Here's an example..

 

https://ipleak.net/

 

Normal.

I understand they are easy to find, I'm just afraid that he is going to do something to harm me by finding out my exact address😳 Btw thanks for replying even thought it's so early
So should I be worried at all about someone breaking in?

For example, using ipleak's site, the geolocation on my public IP is in a city over 100 miles away from where I live.

 

Did you go to ipleak? Looking at the data, if you were a stranger, could you find where you lived?

 

Even if it were in the same city, there is simply not enough information for anyone to find your exact address from that.

If you are using a local ISP where all their servers are located in the same town as you are, that would be how they "nailed it".

 

The "smoke and mirrors" display from this person was meant to intimidate you...and it worked.

 

However, now that you know better, you can take your power back.

Okay, I deleted my channel and everything associated so is there anyway for him to "intimidate" me and is there anyway for me to find out his ip? The only reason I would want to find his ip is to see how far from me he is to tell if it may be my friend or if it is so faraway that he\she wouldn't bother... yes he did get to me badly by intimidation😂
And how can I take my power back?*

Actually, if a friend of mine did that, they wouldn't be my friend...know what I mean?

 

You might report the issue to Google...they would be able to find out his IP address and the email address he used on Google, from their logs.

 

However, they would not release that information to you.

 

Intimidation is a form of harassment, which is a crime. Contact your local law enforcement agency and discuss it with them.

 

You have knowledge of how the "trick" was done, so letting it go, and moving on would be a good next step.

By now I'm probably being annoying but the thing I worry about is if his intents were to,well, kill or harm me(or worse) he probably wouldn't make it a matter to tell me he was doing so if he were smart but I've probably just listened to too many stories and I'm making a big deal about it by now... thanks for all the help

Again, part of getting your power back is taking action.

 

You've already started by posting here, asking questions, deleting your channel.

 

Contact Google and your local law enforcement agency if it will ease your mind further.

 

Get some rest.
