Unless someone is editing logged out, Fandom will not expose IPs. However, there are times when we will look up an IP to help us combat bad behaviour.
For example, if someone is causing damage to a wiki, staff are able to look up their IP in order to block it and stop them vandalizing.
The ability to do this has also been given to our Volunteer Spam Task Force and a few admins on major wikis. Community Central admins are able to look up IPs on that specific wiki. These groups will also keep IP addresses private, but they may show in block logs on individual wikis.
If you are an admin or moderator and need help with vandalism or other problems, you can request a check from staff. To do this, please use the form here. We will only do a check if there is a very strong reason for it, never just to satisfy someone's curiosity.
Non-admins cannot request these checks, please talk to your admin instead.
