IP address geolocation is an estimate based on available information. In many cases, it can be surprisingly accurate. In other cases, it can be quite a bit off. You can read more about geolocation accuracy here: https://whatismyipaddress.com/geolocation-accuracy and https://whatismyipaddress.com/geolocation

If you would like to fix the location seen on our site visit https://whatismyipaddress.com/update-location-test with browser location sharing enabled.
