Don't use a VPN
The survey providers can detect when you have an invalid internet connection. So, if you’re using a VPN, proxy, or Tor, make sure you turn it off before taking a survey. If you are using masking software, the survey provider may suspect you of being a fraudulent user, and we wouldn’t want that!
If you are unsure how to turn your VPN on and off, try doing a bit of research, or looking at your providers FAQs.
