How do I check that my IP address has been changed?

After connecting to one of ProtonVPN’s servers or locations, your IP address will be changed automatically.  To confirm that your IP address has been changed, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Visit https://iplocation.net and note down your IP address and location
  2. Connect to ProtonVPN server
  3. Visit https://iplocation.net again (or refresh the page) to make sure that your IP address has been changed (clearing cache and cookies is recommended)

    Installed Proton VPN yesterday and did some tests. In normal mode and in Secure core mode my real address comes back again and overrules the adress generated by protonVPN. It happens when I am just browsing or posting on forums.
    So at start I am protected and in no time everybody sees my real IP address!
    What’s the use of a VPN in this case.

    Hi, this sounds like the VPN is not functioning or configured correctly. Can you please drop us a line via protonvpn.com/support-form with information regarding your OS, the VPN client you are using (incl. a version number), which servers you are connecting to and a screenshot of a successful connection with a leaky IP and we’ll be happy to investigate what causes this situation

    My brother in Russia has a credit card and he does not know how to create a Facebook campaign
    I will create a Facebook campaign using one of your paid plans using Proton vpn
    My brother will put the payment settings from Russia and I will put the campaign settings
    Will this work with me?

    A really great “all in one” tool for checking your VPN connection can be found here: http://www.ipleak.net

    You might also want to check if your DNS is leaking at dnsleaktest.com. Explanation of ‘DNS leak’ can be found there.

    One feature I saw in perfect-privacy VPN is that in the client you can check your IP without having to browse a webpage.
    When you release a Linux client, please add it if possible 🙂

    We support the same feature in the Windows client and our Linux client is in the works, stay tuned!
