I frequently (a few times a day) connect via VPN with an abroad service and Google Chrome detects it as if I was abroad. And every time I do that it asks me:

How do I disable this thing?

Google provides a little bit more explanation what it is, but it doesn't seem to provide a way to disable it.

Does it happen when you use a custom query string? – soandos Dec 22 '11 at 23:26
@soandos What do you mean by a custom query string? – Michal M Dec 23 '11 at 8:10

Maybe this post can help you out: Change Google's Search Domain in Google Chrome.


  1. Close all Chrome windows.

  2. Go to Chrome's user profile directory (for example, in Windows Vista and Windows 7 the path is: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data).

  3. Open the file Local State in a text editor like Notepad, TextEdit or gedit.

  4. Find the two lines that include "last_known_google_url" and "last_prompted_google_url" and change the Google URL from "" (, .fr, etc.) to "" or any other Google domain. enter image description here

  5. Save the text file and restart Chrome.
