Title: when we log-in through the API, does Primedice knows our location
Post by: parisd on November 05, 2020, 03:23:53 pm
Some countries are not allowed to use Primedice,

I rented a VPS and noticed their servers is in the USA, could it be that one day Primedice or any other dicebet website will notice that and ban my account? Should I switch to another VPS (not VPN).

Tks

Yes. IPs are assigned based on geographical location and the ip ranges for each area are publicly known, so it can be looked up (most sites do this for a variety of reasons). Your IP (and by association your location accurate to city/suburb+ISP) is known by the site as soon as you access any of its resources, because that's how the internet works.

I doubt they'll ban you but they will block access to the site from that VPS. You should probably switch to one in a region where online gambling is not prohibited.

Even if I use exclusively Dicebot and API to Log-in, they still know from where dicebot runs?
