How to Track Anyone’s IP using Transparent Images?


Hello, everyone! Welcome to techyrick. Today, I’m going to show you how to track anyone’s IP using Transparent Images! Yes, you heard that right. We’ll begin by understanding the concept thoroughly and then move on to a step-by-step guide on how to use it.

While you could technically do this manually using custom-developed payloads, there’s a much easier way. I’ll walk you through it today with simple steps you can follow. So, let’s get started with our learning journey.

Understanding Canarytokens

Canarytokens serve as digital traps for your computer systems. They operate by monitoring specific actions, such as file reads, database queries, process executions, or the identification of particular patterns in log files.

They’re akin to those tracking pixels in emails, except instead of monitoring opens, they track actions within your system.

What’s interesting is that we can employ Canarytokens to establish these traps in our everyday computer systems, somewhat akin to installing alarms in various areas of your house… quite amusing, if you ask me.

Now, why should you bother with these Canarytokens? Well, hackers sometimes infiltrate computer networks, and it’s something that happens to large corporations, governments, regular individuals—basically, everyone.

That aspect is understandable. However, what’s not acceptable is only discovering it much later, perhaps months or even years down the line, which can lead to disappointing and unpleasant surprises!

Canarytokens provide a free, simple, and quick method to promptly alert you if there’s any unauthorized activity in your systems. It’s akin to hackers inadvertently tipping their hand and letting you know of their presence.

Step-by-Step Usage

Head over to and select your Canarytoken. Think of it as setting a digital trap. Enter an email address where you’d like to receive notifications, and jot down a note to help you remember where you’ve placed it.

Sure, let’s create a Fast redirect Canarytoken. Think of it as crafting a secret link that will sound the alarm if anyone clicks on it. In this blog, I’ll demonstrate how to set up a Fast redirect as an illustration.

Once you’ve generated the Canarytoken, place it in a strategic location and send it to your target. This could be within an email, a document, or even embedded in an image. If the target interacts with it, you’ll receive an email notification, signaling that something is amiss.


If your target accesses the URL or file, similar to the example provided earlier, your token becomes activated and triggers an alert via email or webhook, as demonstrated below:

You can rename the generated PDF, Excel, or Word document without impacting its functionality.
