how it works on your server? I'm living in Poland, tested it with ".de" mail on mine account and I was recognized as I'm from Germany.
Maybe little show off yout backstage how it exactly recognizing the users?
Thanks in advance.
I would expect they use a GeoIP database or service themselves (like MaxMind), not that they're running their own process to guess at it.
Geolocation can be pretty accurate most of the time, but it's never totally perfect.
Isn't Google what's used on IPS4?
Thanks guys for your replies. I expected to hear someone from IPS to get more 'officially' response.
For address input fields, we use Google Maps.
For language detection, we use the Accept-Language header your browser sends.
For IP address lookup, we use a GeoIP database on our servers to guesstimate the location based on the IP address.
Thus, it depends on which functionality you are referring to. We never use your email address FWIW.
