Using VPN outside country

Post by shaywood » Sat Apr 30, 2022 1:23 pm

I'm currently physically located in the Caribbean but connected to my VPN in the US. When I Google the weather forecast for back home, it displays in Celsius. Why is this since I'm connected to my VPN at home.
I have included the following statement in my config file to ensure full tunnel. When I verify my current IP address, it displays my home location correctly.

This OpenVPN client probably runs on an Android cell phone and you have not removed Google account from it, nor spyware loaded "social" apps, nor disabled geo/net location, nor switched from tracking-infested Chrome browser to privacy-hardened Firefox which purges cookies between sessions. Then... "it displays in Celsius".
