Server OS Detection (change/disguise) - Feedback / Suggestion - PIA Support Portal


Server OS Detection (change/disguise) Under Review

Apparently it is possible for websites to detect the actual OS of the PIA server we are connected to. Often (always?) it detects MacOS no matter what OS I am running, and no matter what user agent I use.<br />

Because some shopping sites charge higher price (+30% more) for MacOS users than Windows/Linux users, I would like PIA to find a way to "project" Linux (or Windows) to all websites rather than MacOS. Thanks.
