My location and relevant information showing as Prague
« on: May 04, 2019, 07:33:00 PM »
When I connect via the VPN to a UK based server, it will show my location as prague, search results from a web browser will all be in Czech, and the lanugage is Czech.

What happens when you select a different London IP connection?  (Turn off the privacy on button to off, wait a bit, turn it back on again)

Hey. There are only two servers within the UK: Glasgow & London. Glasgow seems to be working fine and displaying my location as Glasgow. The London server is still displaying my location as Prague, including advertisements, language and search results. Is this an error with the server? I have tried on several devices with no luck.

When you log off, note what your secret IP address is.  Log back on, do you have a different one?  Log off, log back on, different again?  Y/N? 

You may be able to use the London server if you can find one that does not give you Czech.  Note that number.

Same problem here. If i choose Frankfurt/Germany in VPN than Google shows me the Tchechien as my place.. Ip: 5.62.41.132. If i choose Berlin/Germany as VPN-Connection than my location is shown in Germany.
