Windows 10 GeoLocation errors


Recommended Posts


I'm conecerned about my Win10 Pro on my PC.

I re-install every 2-3 months as I change ofter HW-s on my PC, but the following issue keeps coming back all the time:

Shopping like AliExpress and other sites - showing I'm from ROMANIA, but I'm from the UK.

Other sites as well doing the same, nothing has been changed on the Settings at all.

I use Asus RT-AC88U Router with Asus Merlin. Nothing major moficiations has been changed by myself, just security.

Any help would be appreciated.

No.  GeoIP a function of the website's use of GeoIP interpretation as it is a client OS independent function.

It is like a person who speaks English with an accent and a 3rd party says, "Oh, you are from Australia."  And the person says no, I am from South Africa.

It is not the fault of the English speaker, it is the misinterpretation of the listener's false presumption.


I think it is funny when I use a Proxy and the GeoIP based ads give 'spastic' results based upon my IP exit node.
