How to IP-Track Someone on "Roblox"

"Roblox" is a free-form world-building game that enables players to create and share environments with the rest of the “Roblox” community. With strangers entering the creations of other players, it is no surprise that animosity flares up from time to time, forcing many game creators to find ways to ban other players from their servers. Unfortunately, problematic players can create a second account and rejoin the server unless the game creator performs an IP ban. As a result, many “Roblox” users look for ways to track the IP addresses of other gamers when they enter the game.
Open Roblox Studio.
Select “Workspace” from the drop-down menu on the right to access the variables of the level.
Locate the folder named “Script” and open by clicking on it. This action will open the code of this game world.
Input the following lines of code: game.ChildAdded:connect(function(child) if child:IsA("NetworkServer") then child.IncommingConnection:connect(function(IP, replicator) Instance.new("StringValue", workspace).Name = IP print(IP) end) end) This portion of code will record the IP addresses of other “Roblox” players when they enter your game.
Save your changes.
Host a server with your game and wait for another player to join. The IP addresses of characters will appear as text on your screen whenever another player joins the game.
Tracking players' IP addresses can get you banned from "Roblox." Utilize IP bans judiciously.
