    seems like BHW is the only place where I can get an answer to this (sorry, if I post it in the wrong section).
    Is it possible to see my real IP address if I'm using VPN?

    Can Google or others see my real IP address and location if I'm using VPN?
    I'm in the US now and I want to trade forex, so can can my broker see my real IP address and location? (I use VPN to have UK IP address).

    It depends on the kind of protocol your VPN uses to encrypt your IP and data. If you're trading from the browser, you can check your browser anonymity by running a simple test at

    Your IP 23.247.163.11 Traceroute
    Your location [​IMG] London, City of, London Show on map
    Your net provider Micfo, LLC. Whois IP
    That's what I get...

    i use purevpn and it shows protocol as automatic... should I select a specific one?

    Is it a dedicated VPN? If it's a dedicated VPN, you are fully anonymous. No one will be able to find out what your real IP is. I use PerfectVPN.net.

    Visit this page and see if it says You are using high-anonymous (elite) proxy., If it does, Your real IP won't be traced by your broker or even google.

    The main purpose of a vpn is to hide your real ip, if it doesnt, then its pointless to use them.

    Set up your own VPN server if you want to be fully anonymous.

    IP detected:
    23.247.163.154
    Country:
    United States - US
    Result:
    You are using high-anonymous (elite) proxy (if you are using proxy). Click here to get more information about this proxy type!
    the only problem is that all other ip checks show that this IP is in London, UK

    OK, I checked a few forex brokers which block US IP addresses and with vpn, they let me in.

    It's nothing to worry about. You're connected through an elite proxy so all your location information is safe. The only other metric someone can use to track your real location is by requesting your system time via a javascript through your browser but I doubt your broker/any other financial companies use this. If you set it to UK Timezone too, then you're 100% anonymous!

    As a side note, please use Ctrl+Shift+V or Command+Shift+V if you're on mac when pasting copied contents while replying. It'll stop the browser from inserting div tags and hyperlinks into the post.

    If it doesn't hide your IP address, calling it a VPN would be inappropriate. :D

    Most new browsers send more than just one IP address unless you have webrtc disabled. That means your real IP gets public together with your VPN address with webrtc left active.
