Change IP address on laptop

Post by DeBo_5800 » Tue Feb 20, 2018 8:51 am

I have a laptop that runs on Windows 8. I’m connected to WiFi and I’m trying to change my IP address to appear that I am in another city or state. If anyone could please reply with any type of assistance. Any info is greatly appreciated.

You'll want to use a VPN service -- all your internet traffic would be routed through their servers. See https://whatismyipaddress.com/hide-ip and https://whatismyipaddress.com/vpn

Yes, your browser can share your location. See https://whatismyipaddress.com/w3c-geolocation

You’ll want to make sure that it is either disabled or at least set to prompt for your permission before sharing.

If you are using a VPN and you are not sharing your location your location will not be traced.
