Note: The private IP addresses are not routed to the Internet.
When you connect multiple devices (computer, mobile phone, tablet) to a network in your home or office, each device needs a specific IP address to identify itself. There cannot be two devices with the same IP number in the same network, otherwise, an IP conflict is faced.
The private IP addresses are used in the mentioned local networks. The use of private IP numbers varies depending on the design of the network topology.
While the public IP addresses are used between your router and the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the private IP addresses are used in your network between the router and your device.
The IP address 192.168.10.1 is also a private IP address. Therefore, there can be many devices with this IP address in various local networks around the world. However, there may be only one device having IP address 192.168.10.1 in the same LAN.
