Geolocation errors
« on: August 27, 2020, 05:15:38 PM »
I believe my SecureLine VPN is the one I see marked as M247 based in Romania and Barcelona.  All my ads are served in Spanish and all other location-dependent sites are immediately set to Spanish.  Occasionally I get log ins to my email from not only Spain but Romania.  How do I get correct ad language or have I been hacked?

OK I have found that there is a country setting for Avast VPN so have set it to Paris as I live in France.  Now ads are served in English and/or French.  Good.

However I now seem to get CROATIA marked as a place I get email logins from (The Spanish and Romanians have gone).  So Amazon has now locked a brand new account because it sees emails logged into by Croation IP.
I could understand that Amazon might wonder about the Spanish and Romanian logins ( and thus why they locked all my previous accounts) but where has this Croatian come from and why?

I got no replies when I asked for help about geolocation.  Please could someone help me re this?
