Can I see the IP address of people accessing my shared files/folders?

New member | Level 2

Hi there everyone.

I wanted to know if there is any possibility that i can see the ip addresses of the viewer who ever accessess my shared files. 

Like, I have a folder which i have shared to only two accounts, so can I get to know when and from where that specific account whom i have shared the files is accessing. I guess there is a feature in which you get to know when a specific user has accessed the files but my main focus is that can i get to know the ip address of that specific account ?
