Description

Please add the country of the apparent IP address to the Congratulations logged-in page.

Some US sites don't allow me to see videos, www. cnbc. com/video/2018/08/16/jay-leno-chats-with-teslas-chief-designer-about-the-2020-tesla-roadster. html reports "Geographic Restriction", I imagine it's because of the European data restrictions, I'm in England. So knowing the country of the apparent IP address would help get round this issue.

Please also make the TOR urls to find out and change the apparent country address easily found, I can't see them anywhere...

Are you talking about https://check.torproject.org ?

In TorBrowser you can get the country of exit node for a current circuit by clicking Onion icon thingy at the left side of address bar:

Try "New Tor Circuit for this Site" to get around GeoIP restrictions.

Yes indeed, the initial page https://check.torproject.org - sorry, I should have specified the URL.

Thanks for the info on the address bar Onion, I didn't know this so looked in HELP which is usually where such useful info is. Which of the locations (the first or the last?) is the one that the site I'm visiting thinks I'm at?

It seems that overseas users need a way to get TOR to specify a US location so those sites that ban European visitors can still be opened. is this at all possible currently? If yes, then please also document in HELP, if not then it would be very useful if you would please add this facility...
