Before You Update Your IP Location...

PROS - Reasons FOR updating.

  • It helps the internet give you precise information on local services and Google searches.
  • It can fix account or service problems (Netflix, for example) caused by an inaccurate IP location.
CONS - Reasons AGAINST updating.


  • Allows anyone to zoom-in on a map, super close to your actual online location, even at home.
  • It makes it easier for advertisers and websites to target you more directly.
ALTERNATIVE - CONTROL your location.
You can hide or disguise your IP location. The best way is to use a VPN.



  • Protect your privacy. No one will know where you truly are when you're online.
  • Increase your security. A VPN encrypts your data, making it impossible to hack.
  • Get around restrictions. Access websites that might otherwise be blocked.
