    Afternoon blues,

    When connected to the net on laptop using my Nord subscription my IP is masked but when searching for my physical location on any of the prominent 'geolocation' sites, my physical location is not masked and is perfectly visible.

    I thought a VPN was supposed to mask the user's true location as well as IP address?

    Is there something I'm doing wrong? or a setting I've not set?

    I'm using either Edge or Mozilla if that helps.

    Ta :)

    Sounds to me like you're connecting to a server in the same country as yourself? Simply connect to a server in a different country ;)
