Definition Edit

A dynamic IP address is an IP address that is temporarily assigned to a computer from a pool of available IP addresses registered to an ISP when a user begins an online session. As a result, a device’s IP address may vary from one logon session to the next.

Overview Edit

The date and time an IP address was assigned must be determined to tie it to a specific device or user account. The ISP may maintain historical log files relating these dynamically assigned IP addresses back to a particular subscriber or user at a particular time.
