yelp.com being redirected to yelp.de

Recommended Posts

Over the past few weeks, I have been finding that attempts to connect to yelp.com through airvpn servers, from Eddie on Windows or from Viscosity on MacOS, are landing at yelp.de, where the default language offered is German. When the language choice is switched to English (American) at yelp.de, the page reloads as yelp.com in English.

 

So, for example, if I attempt right now to connect to yelp.com using airvpn's Chalawan (US, Phoenix, Arizona) portal, it lands at yelp.de/phoenix, with information displayed in German.

 

If I attempt to connect to yelp.com/nyc using Chalawan, it lands at yelp.de/nyc, in German.

 

However, if I attempt to connect instead to yelp.com directly, without using the vpn, it goes to English-language yelp.com.

 

(Several months back, all attempts to connect to yelp.com through airvpn were being blocked. That problem has been resolved, but it has recently been replaced, it seems, with the new one I am describing here.)

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

The reason is that https://www.yelp.com is being rerouted on all servers through the DE rerouting server. A reason for that could be that Yelp was unreachable from all servers.

 

So, people suffer on all sides. I propose a compromise to route half of the servers through DE, the other half directly if Yelp is reachable with them again.

 

This sure represents a problem, but generally is better suited in the Blocked websites warning forum. For the next time.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
