What Is a Dynamic IP Address?

November 6, 2023

A dynamic IP address is a dynamically changing network device identifier, i.e., a unique set of numbers automatically assigned from an address pool by an Internet Service Provider’s DHCP server.

Dynamic IP addresses offer better security and user privacy than static IP addresses. They also improve network speed and reliability for everyday internet users, which is why they are the default option for most ISPs.
