Hello!

 

Turn off location tracking in your browser and install some browser plugins such as Ublock Origin for example. Clear your cookies/browser data too. If you're using Eddie, then please turn on Network Lock for a quick fix :)

"ipleak.net is run by us, do you like it" --  from user "Staff" in https://airvpn.org/topic/9289-dns-leaks-and-how-to-fix-them 

 

My question is this: with or without a VPN, ipleak.net shows my geolocation as being just west of Witchita, KS, whereas in reality I live almost 2,000 km to the east, near State College, PA.  How may this error be corrected?

 

NB: https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ shows my true location at the same time as ipleak.net gives the results mentioned above.

Hi there, are you new to AirVPN? Many of your questions are already answered in this guide. Its Guides Section has guides on Linux/Torrenting/Blocked sites & many other topics too.
Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please read the First Questions section in the link above for more details, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.
