When you log in via mobile, do the servers log the location of the mobile at all. Not an issue, just curious?

If you are on a computer, your Ip gets logged. Wondering about the cell phone.

every internet connectioning device has an ip in it.
so yes your mobile ip is logged also.
there are tools in smart phone that can show your public and private ip, i know some apps for iphone, android and wp.

Unless things are different on here, no. To my knowledge while the webserver does log every IP address, geolocation isn't usually logged. Your ISP (and Google, lol) can locate your mobile device IF you have the various GPS services enabled. Also, they can use tower triangulation to get a pretty good idea where you're at based on signal strength.

Try this:
What Is My IP - The IP Address Experts Since 1999 to obtain your public IP address
Then Visual Trace Route Tool - Find Track and Map the Route to an IP Address and pop your IP in to search.

In my case, it did hit Buffalo, but well out of my local zone.

Now if you're on Android on your phone, Android Device Manager will help locate you. Also if you use the LookOut security app it can locate your device.
