AVAST VPN Netherlands and USA ?!?
« on: February 14, 2023, 02:07:15 AM »

for a few days now, when i choose NETHERLANDS in my avast vpn, it's identified as USA by websites:

it's boring since a lot of websites block USA !

thanks in advance for solving this, asap

I have experienced this errant behaviour for many days (weeks).

When the server for Toronto, Canada is chosen the VPN UI claims
that users will see my location as Toronto. However a check of
the location from sites such as frequently (usually)
show I'm elsewhere. Examples:

New York City, New York
Seattle, Washington
Miami, Florida
Marietta, Georgia

Only after several disconnect/reconnect attempts do I finally see Toronto.

When coupled with the continuing inability to connect to sites such as

when Toronto is selected as the server (OK with Montreal and Vancouver
as reported to Avast many weeks ago), this VPN is too unreliable and
unpredictable to warrant renewing my subscription. In spite of being
spammed with renewal offers for the past four months.
