If you’ve signed up for one of our proxies/VPNs and notice that Google displays an incorrect location for your IP address when connected to it, don’t be alarmed. The accuracy of geolocation databases varies and even Google is sometimes very inaccurate. Before submitting a support ticket, first check your IP address against a different geolocation lookup service to determine where your IP address is really located. We recommend iplocation.net.

We offer Guaranteed Google Accuracy for an additional fee.

iplocation.net shows you geolocation results from different IP lookup services and is generally more accurate than Google. Google uses their own proprietary methods for determining the location of an IP address and this is something we do not have any control over. If you’d like to prevent google.com from redirecting you to a google page in a foreign language, you can force google to display results from google.com by clicking on the “Use google.com” link at the bottom right of the Google page with the incorrect country.
