The official PHP library for IPinfo, the most reliable, accurate, and in-depth source of IP address data available anywhere. We process terabytes of data to produce our custom IP geolocation, company, carrier and IP type data sets. Visit our developer docs at https://ipinfo.io/developers.

v3.1.2 2023-10-02 12:42 UTC

This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2024-05-18 09:39:06 UTC


This is the official PHP client library for the IPinfo.io IP address API, allowing you to look up your own IP address, or get any of the following details for an IP:

  • IP to Geolocation data (city, region, country, postal code, latitude, and longitude)
  • ASN information (ISP or network operator, associated domain name, and type, such as business, hosting, or company)
  • Company details (the name and domain of the business that uses the IP address)
  • Carrier information (the name of the mobile carrier and MNC and MCC for that carrier if the IP is used exclusively for mobile traffic)

Check all the data we have for your IP address here.

Getting Started

You'll need an IPinfo API access token, which you can get by signing up for a free account at https://ipinfo.io/signup.

The free plan is limited to 50,000 requests per month, and doesn't include some of the data fields such as IP type and company data. To enable all the data fields and additional request volumes see https://ipinfo.io/pricing.


The package works with PHP 8 and is available using Composer.

composer require ipinfo/ipinfo

Quick Start


require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

use ipinfo\ipinfo\IPinfo;

$access_token = '123456789abc';
$client = new IPinfo($access_token);
$ip_address = '';
$details = $client->getDetails($ip_address);

echo $details->city; // Mountain View
echo $details->loc; // 37.4056,-122.0775


The IPinfo->getDetails() method accepts an IP address as an optional, positional argument. If no IP address is specified, the API will return data for the IP address from which it receives the request.

$client = new IPinfo();
$ip_address = '';
$details = $client->getDetails($ip_address);
echo $details->city; // Mountain View
echo $details->loc; // 37.4056,-122.0775


The IPinfo library can be authenticated with your IPinfo API token, which is passed in as a positional argument. It also works without an authentication token, but in a more limited capacity.

$access_token = '123456789abc';
$client = new IPinfo($access_token);

Details Data

IPinfo->getDetails() will return a Details object that contains all fields listed IPinfo developer docs with a few minor additions. Properties can be accessed directly.

$details->hostname; // cpe-104-175-221-247.socal.res.rr.com

Country Name

Details->country_name will return the country name, as supplied by the countries object. See below for instructions on changing that object for use with non-English languages. Details->country will still return the country code.

$details->country; // US
$details->country_name; // United States

EU Country

Details->is_eu will return true if the country is a member of the EU, as supplied by the eu object.

$details->is_eu; // False

Country Flag

Details->country_flag will return the emoji and Unicode representations of the country's flag, as supplied by the flags object.

$details->country_flag['emoji']; // 🇺🇸
$details->country_flag['unicode']; // U+1F1FA U+1F1F8

Country Flag URL

Details->country_flag_url will return a public link to the country's flag image as an SVG which can be used anywhere.

$details->country_flag_url; // https://cdn.ipinfo.io/static/images/countries-flags/US.svg

Country Currency

Details->country_currency will return the code and symbol of the country's currency, as supplied by the currency object.

$details->country_currency['code']; // USD
$details->country_currency['symbol']; // $


Details->continent will return the code and name of the continent, as supplied by the continents object.

$details->continent['code']; // NA
$details->continent['name']; // North America

Longitude and Latitude

Details->latitude and Details->longitude will return latitude and longitude, respectively, as strings. Details->loc will still return a composite string of both values.

$details->loc; // 37.4056,-122.0775
$details->latitude; // 37.4056
$details->longitude; // -122.0775

Accessing all properties

Details->all will return all details data as a dictionary.

In-memory caching of Details data is provided by default via the symfony/cache library. LRU (least recently used) cache-invalidation functionality has been added to the default TTL (time to live). This means that values will be cached for the specified duration; if the cache's max size is reached, cache values will be invalidated as necessary, starting with the oldest cached value.

Modifying cache options

Default cache TTL and maximum size can be changed by setting values in the $settings argument array.

  • Default maximum cache size: 4096 (multiples of 2 are recommended to increase efficiency)
  • Default TTL: 24 hours (in seconds)
$access_token = '123456789abc';
$settings = ['cache_maxsize' => 30, 'cache_ttl' => 128];
$client = new IPinfo($access_token, $settings);

Using a different cache

It's possible to use a custom cache by creating a child class of the CacheInterface class and passing this into the handler object with the cache keyword argument. FYI this is known as the Strategy Pattern.

$access_token = '123456789abc';
$settings = ['cache' => $my_fancy_custom_cache];
$client = new IPinfo($access_token, $settings);

Disabling the cache

You may disable the cache by passing in a cache_disabled key in the settings:

$access_token = '123456789abc';
$settings = ['cache_disabled' => true];
$client = new IPinfo($access_token, $settings);

Overriding HTTP Client options

The IPinfo client constructor accepts a timeout key which is the request timeout in seconds.

For full flexibility, a guzzle_opts key is accepted which accepts an associative array which is described in Guzzle Request Options. Options set here will override any custom settings set by the IPinfo client internally in case of conflict, including headers.

Batch Operations

Looking up a single IP at a time can be slow. It could be done concurrently from the client side, but IPinfo supports a batch endpoint to allow you to group together IPs and let us handle retrieving details for them in bulk for you.

$access_token = '123456789abc';
$client = new IPinfo($access_token);
$ips = ['', '', ''];
$results = $client->getBatchDetails($ips);
echo $results['']; // AU

The input size is not limited, as the interface will chunk operations for you behind the scenes.

Please see the official documentation for more information and limitations.


When looking up an IP address, the response object includes a Details->country_name attribute which includes the country name based on American English. It is possible to return the country name in other languages by setting the countries object inside the IPinfo object, when creating the IPinfo object.

The php object must be with the following structure:

countries = [
    "BD" => "Bangladesh",
    "BE" => "Belgium",
    "BF" => "Burkina Faso",
    "BG" => "Bulgaria"
continents = [
        "BD" => ["code" => "AS", "name" => "Asia"],
        "BE" => ["code" => "EU", "name" => "Europe"],
        "BF" => ["code" => "AF", "name" => "Africa"],
        "BG" => ["code" => "EU", "name" => "Europe"],
        "BA" => ["code" => "EU", "name" => "Europe"],
        "BB" => ["code" => "NA", "name" => "North America"]

Other Libraries

There are official IPinfo client libraries available for many languages including PHP, Python, Go, Java, Ruby, and many popular frameworks such as Django, Rails, and Laravel. There are also many third-party libraries and integrations available for our API.
