Skeebus is a macOS menu bar app that displays your current public IP address. It uses GeoIP services to provide country, region, city, postal code, latitude/longitude, and ISP information. Skeebus also displays the country flag to the right of the IP address, and looks great for both traditional and dark menu bar modes. You can even click the Lat/Long data to plot the location on a map.

If the app is unable to contact the GeoIP provider, it will fall back to another provider and determine your IP address without the GeoIP information. Skeebus does not periodically contact either provider to update your address, rather it automatically updates any time an interface state changes (a cable is plugged in/unplugged, wireless is connected/disconnected, a VPN is connected/disconnected, etc.). You can also manually refresh the data at any point.

Great, but needs refresh settings


This app works pretty well, except that it doesn’t refresh when your IP changes, and you have to manually refresh. Sometimes on startup, it starts off as offline until you refresh it. Seems like a simple refresh interval setting would solve these problems.



I tried a few of these apps and this works the best. Unobtusive. Has a refresh button (so I dont know what everybodys complaining about) but rarely use it as it updates lickity-split on IP change.

Should be 5 stars


I agree about the response for the program to refresh on start up. I constantly have to refresh every time i reboot. It is quite frustrating as it should be happening automatically like it is supposed to do.

As a result, I downloaded an additional free app to run on startup to verify as well.

Resolve this issue and I’d give it 5 star review.
