Where Am I

“Where Am I” shows your location using a number of different technologies to determine where you are. You can use it to test whether your anonymizer, or non-transparent proxy is working or not, or perhaps you might use it just to find-out your IP Address. If one of the technologies does located you then it will include a more info link to where you can see more information about that location and even see it plotted on a google map, or at least it will plot where it thinks that you are.

Clicking the button will execute some JavaScript in your browser which will cause it to ask you if it is OK for it to share where it thinks that you are.  If you elect to share your location then we will display it here in the text box below.  Alternatively if you elect not to share your location then you will be able to see that your browser did in fact not share your location information – evident by the fact that the table remains empty.

    Does anyone know of any other headers that we should be checking for?
    At the time of writing this comment, we were currently checking for the existence of the following headers – in addition to the IP Address of the TCP/IP connection itself:
    HTTP_CLIENT_IP
    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR
    HTTP_X_FORWARDED
    HTTP_X_CLUSTER_CLIENT_IP
    HTTP_FORWARDED_FOR
    HTTP_FORWARDED

    What we are trying to do here is provide a page that people can use to test how anonymous they are with regards to their IP Address. However, browser COOKIES are a much more accurate tracking tool than IP Addresses, and because cookies are only sent to the site that issued them, it is not something that we can exhaustively test here. After saying that, if you check out the ads on the page above, and they appear to be targeting your recent browsing history, then there is a very good chance that your browser is still identifying you via cookies.

    In any case, I am keen for any ideas of how to improve this page, its functionality, aesthetics, or whatever – all feedback, good or bad is appreciated.
    Thanks
