Hi, while I was playing clash of clan game, I had verbal fight with some in global chat. Stranger threatened me saying he will hack into the game and track my IP and will come to my place. Is this possible? Can he hack into game server to find my IP? I've deleted my clan because he said he is good hacker. So can anyone tell me can you track anyone's IP address through clash of clan game?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Before big companies started to host the gaming servers, it was easy to get the other users IP address and do a bit of tracking. But, now, they would only get as far as your ISP, not down to your level, so you are safe. 

Also, anyone can say that they are good and not know a thing. It is those that do not say anything that are the ones that know what they are doing. So, if you have someone running their mouth on how big and bad they are in hacking you, relax, but, as a precaution, it is smart that you did delete your clan. Just go back in, change your user name and such and start over again. More than likely, if it is a popular game, you will be put on another gaming server and never have to deal with them again.

    Generally not possible. Is this game requires net connection during playing, If it is off line game, chances are few. Yes, you never save the game data/ uncheck remember history, if it is there.

    Most likely not. You should be safe. A word of caution. You need to remember that there are some nuts out there with very good computer skills. If you use the same, screen name on multiple sites or use in in things like Facebook as an example, they may be able to track you. Depending on how much real data you post to your social media presence it may make it easy or hard to track you.

    @Dancelvein: Since there is no business reason for such a request, there can be no answer. To learn how, take classes, read books, study and begin working in the field.

    @Dancelvein, if the game has a mechanism that can track/ find IP address, then it is possible. However, there is enough reason when you are going to track an IP address.

    @Danclevein: Possible? yes but not for the average person, you would need to be a skilled hacker and all the key things need to be in place. A good site will no allow outsiders to start poking around in their system to track IP or account info.There may be encryption, firewalls, security and a host of other thing to keep you out.
