Block Facebook's IP address in addition to its domain name to restrict access to the social networking giant on your home network. Like many popular websites, Facebook uses many internet servers to handle incoming requests to its service, so to block Facebook, block the complete list of IP addresses that the company owns.

There is no direct method to find the IP address of a Facebook user.

Blocking Facebook Access

If you want to block access to Facebook from your home network, restrict these entire IP ranges:

  • 66.220.144.0 – 66.220.159.255
  • 69.63.176.0 – 69.63.191.255
  • 204.15.20.0 – 204.15.23.255

Facebook.com uses some but not all of the addresses in these ranges. 

Reaching Facebook by IP Address

Below are some of the most common active IP addresses for Facebook.com:

  • 69.63.176.13
  • 69.63.181.15
  • 69.63.184.142
  • 69.63.187.17
  • 69.63.187.18
  • 69.63.187.19
  • 69.63.181.11
  • 69.63.181.12

In some cases, you can access Facebook by using an IP address instead of its usual URL — handy if you want to visit the social networking service but you cannot resolve domain names behind a given network.

IP address ownership can change. If you want to know if Facebook owns a specific IP address, go to the WhoIs website and copy the IP address into the search bar. The resulting information tells you who owns the IP address.
