IP geolocation accuracy can vary and it depends on the quality of the geo IP data provider.

A good IP geolocation data provider will have accuracies in the following range:

Country: 99%+

State/Region: 85%+

City: 70%+

Note that IP geolocation accuracies are lower on mobile networks positioning of mobile towers.

It is always important to choose a reputable IP geolocation provider to ensure you minimize any false location detection.

We don't recommend using IP geolocation to detect visitors on a ZIP level or within a city itself.
