ipleak uses Google Maps

Recommended Posts

I don't think I need to explain much here.
The embedded map is fetched from Google, so Google potentially tracks all users playing with their VPN connection turning it on and off.

Further I don't know whether this embed is violating GDPR or not: does Google set custom (not technically required) cookies? Either way, Chromium browsers send a presumably identifiable header to Google domains by default.
The alternative is either OpenStreetMap, no map at all or only load the map after a click (user confirmation). I have only once wanted to view the map out of numerous times visiting ipleak.net

For the moment, we made the map visible with user confirmation, so there isn't anymore any request outside ipleak.net domain

Thanks for the feedback
