This questions is related to issues and practicality, not security.
I live in Brazil and, apparently, every single website I visit knows about it. Usually that's okay. But there are quite a few sites that don't make use of that information adequately.
- Bing keeps thinking that Brazilian pages are way more relevant to me than American ones (which they're not).
google.comalways redirects me to
- Microsoft automatically sends me to horribly translated support pages in Portuguese (which would just be easier to read in English).
These are just a few examples. Usually it's stuff I can live with (or work around), but some of them are just plain irritating.
I have geolocation disabled in Firefox, so I guess they're either getting this information from my IP or from Windows itself (which I bought here).
Is there a way to avoid this? Either tell them nothing or make them think I live somewhere else?
