How To Track The Location Of E-mail Sender In Gmail Easily

Generally, Gmail hides the sender IP address from outgoing e-mail headers. If the sender’s e-mail address is from Yahoo, Hotmail, live or AOL, you can trace the email sender location in Gmail by tracking the IP address of the sender. If you are getting regular emails from an unknown person, it might be necessary to check the background of that person.

Here comes a series of steps to identify the location of the person who is bugging you

Using IP address to track the location



We can find the sender’s location using their IP address, which will be available on Gmail. In order to check it out,

  • open the sender’s message in Gmail and click on ‘Show Original’. Now open it in another tab and search for ‘Receiver’ and copy the IPV4 address of sender’s computer.
  • After this, Open the ip-tracker website and paste the IP address to find out.

Tracking The Location Using Time

Another method is to find the time of mail received from the sender. Once you get to know the time, go to ‘Time Zone Map’ and enter the time. By this way, we can find out the countries and cities of the related time zone. Even though you cannot find him accurately, we will have an idea about it at least.

Browse through Facebook

We can seek the mail ID on Facebook from our account to know more details about them. In case, if the person has the same email ID, then it’s a bingo! We can get the location and other info of that person by exploring his profile.

Searching Through Social Media 

Apart from Facebook, we still have other social media network including Twitter, Instagram and much more to find the person’s  identity. If the concerned person uses the same email ID, then as you search, the profile would crop up in front of us . If not, there is a website called ‘KnowEm’, where you can search the profile of them.


There still exists a chance to figure it out if nothing else works

There are two websites, which gives us the opportunity to search for a name, email or phone and we get the result quickly in our fingertips. One is Pipl and the another one is Spokio. With these two options, we can find the location as well as other details about that person belonging to that email.
