How to see a Skype’s user location in the map

You can discover the location of an online Skype user using this approach:

1) Verify if the user is really online;

2) Go to https://www.hanzresolver.com/skype2 and put the Skype user name;

3) It will return: Resolved IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (2156ms);

4) Go to https://www.maxmind.com and put this Resolved IP number in the “Try our GeoIP2 Precision service demo:” text box and click on “GO”.

5) It will return a Lat/Long position like this: -23.5475, -46.6361

6) Just search for this lat/long on Google and it will return the map position.

Very easy!

Update: The position is not precise, it is approximate. It should be probably the “last mile” position from your ISP.
