    Im new to all this facebook stuff you know and im having a question which i failed to find using search button.

    Im using highly anonymous private proxy, when i check my ip (type google whats my ip) on sites im noticed that im not using proxy and the IP address is the right proxy address. The problem is when you log in to facebook account and going to Settings > Security and down below you can find "Active Sessions" and in this gap they write my real location and real IP address, but im logged in under proxy? So where is the logic? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Your ip can get leaked even if you're using a proxy. Disable flash, java and I think Silverlight plug in as well. Run Ccleaner and then try it again. Hopefully you'll be good.

    you need to erase all past login sessions on facebook, logout, start proxy, log in, then you go to security and you will se the proxy ip as current location
