Hello! I am curious as to why my android showed a total of four different IP addresses when I checked the device info? I am not counting the addresses under other headings such as MAC address/etc., but four listed under the IP address heading. :) A few months ago this was not the case. Any ideas, help, or advice is very much appreciated. Thank you!

Hello, each network connection type will have a separate IP address. The mobile data connection has an IP address assigned by the carrier. And each wifi connection will give the device a new IP address related to that wifi system.

You may be now noticing the difference because you have recently connected to different WiFi / mobile data.
