About the browser language

Most websites adjust their content to your preferred language according to your browser language. This improves the user experience of interacting with the website, but at the same time, the data can be also misused to identify you as a specific user, customize advertisements for you, and even collect additional data without your consent.

The language settings are also very important for consistency with your timezone and geolocation. If these parameters differ too much, some platforms may consider such configurations suspicious.

For example, if you “are” in Australia, but your timezone is London, and the language is Japanese, then the security system can find it suspicious — there are practically no such users in reality.

How to change your browser language

  1. Press the Settings button on a profile

  2. Select the Languages section of the right-side menu and tick off the "Based on IP" slider.

Now, your browser language will be set to English by default, and you will also have the option to choose any language you prefer!

NOTE! It's recommended to have your language settings correspond to your proxy. For instance, if your location is Germany, it's always better to set the German language in your language settings.
