Is IP address private?

I have had a call from my computer security provider with concerns that have received 1000’s if hacker attempts through my IP address. Is my IP address private / secure? I’m concerned and don’t know who to trust 😖

Only you will have your IP address but it's not yours forever. Who has contacted you? It sounds a bit fishy.

'had a call from my computer security provider'

complete nonsense. ignore it. it's a scam.

no 'computer security provider' has any info about hacking attempts. genuine software would certainly tell you that hacking attempts have been made and blocked. you certainly wouldn't be getting a call from anyone, be it microsoft, malware bytes, norton etc.

VM very rarely call anybody unless of course it’s a marketing call.
