What are we talking about ?

  • The forum’s hosting service has to store the IP address of who has posted the comment (for a legal period of time)
  • The Internet Service Provider (ISP) has to store the IP address (also IMEI, cell ID) and to which customer it is linked (for a legal period of time)
  • Find back an illegal torrent user,
  • Find back authors of unappropriate contents on the web, …
  • Tracking users for profiling them and delivering ads
  • Preventing identity theft: blocking connections to personal accounts from unexpected IP addresses,
  • Restricting contents delivery based on Geographic information,
  • Banning user for game server, or from Wikipedia, for instance, after vandalization,

Fake My Location

How does it work

Side effects

  1. the Weather widget data will be based on the fake location, not the real one. A workaround could be to define manually a fake location, not so far away from the real one.
  2. the navigation applications (MagicEarth, OsmAnd, Maps.ME, Waze…) will use the fake location. In order to users properly those applications, the users have to temporarily disable Fake my location.
  3. We use Mapbox in order to display a map to the users while they play with location configuration. It will be detected as a tracker by the Tracker blocker feature. We are looking for an alternative.
