For what reason internet provider changes your IP address?
Why would someone want to change his IP address, expect that he just wants remove IP ban?
What are the specific cases or under what circumstances provider changes your IP address?
I would like to know what would it solve.

Hi,

Changing an IP address is particularly useful if you want to avoid online tracking. By changing it regularly, it will make be more difficult for websites to track your activity.

Here is how to change your IP address on Windows. Also, to better protect against tracking, it is advisable to use a VPN for additional privacy protection.

Your IP address may also change if your ISP changes its network infrastructure or if it has encountered a network failure. In addition, if the DHCP lease time has expired, your IP may also be changed.
