    Hi, just a quick question.

    I am trying to access a new website which is only accessible in Sweden. As I am from the U.K I am using a VPN to obtain a Swedish IP. This successfully grants me access to the Website. YAY.

    BUT!

    To use all functions on the website it requires you to log in via Facebook. Although I have a new, fake Facebook account set to a Swedish hometown etc. it seems as if when the website connects to Facebook it somehow recognizes I am not in Sweden, even before I grant permission for it to access my Facebook details!

    Can anyone shed some light on how this may be happening?
