    Helo, I hope this is the right section for this post.

    I have one dumb question, I could not find answer. But I still have to ask - do I have to hide every time I visit site (let's say amazon)?

    If I want to open new account at amazon, I'll use VPN - for example from Singapore, Ill register. From now on, do I have to use VPN every time I use amazon as that user or is it enough to use that account without VPN?

    Do sites try to find out your IP and location everytime you are visiting them or only at register?

    Thank you!

    Yes you will need to use VPN every time. If you login from different IP/Location it will think the account has been stolen or hijacked and will prompt for security questions.

    Amazon don't care where you are, but the security system will.

    Look at it from Amazon's perspective: someone signs up from Singapore, and then a few hours later signs in from London/USA/wherever your regular ip is from. That doesn't look like "normal" user behaviour and so their security system may take steps to ensure your account is secure: blocking login, throwing up a CAPTCHA, etc.

    This is especially true if you are doing any kind of high-risk action: adding a new shipping address, changing the account password, (i.e. things that a hacker may do to a compromised account).

    Always use a VPN. If you can't use the same IP each time, at least use an IP from the same country.

    Absolutely yes. This helps to hide behind the numbers which is not yours own IP. It provides private communication between you and the internet through computers or like that. My suggestion is to do all things with your VPN connection.

    Yes , you have to use the VPN from the same location each time you use the account to stay safe.
