Why is the geo-location detected not where I am?

Puffin's cloud servers are located in the US and Singapore. As a result, websites will receive the IP address of our servers instead of your device.

Although Puffin passes your IP to websites via X-Forwarded-For, some websites do not support this standard and cannot accurately detect your region. If you would like the website to know your real location, please ask them to support X-Forwarded-For.

When using Puffin Incognito, your actual IP address will remain unknown.
