Problem Accessing Google websites when using Duke VPN
- When using the "Library Resources Only" setting on VPN, Google websites erroneously think the user is located in Hong Kong and present a HK/Chinese language version of their site.
- Access to all other websites (e.g., any site that is not Google) works normally and VPN is functioning as expected.
- The problem is on Google's side, has been reported, and they are working to correct the issue.
- Potential work arounds include using search engines such as Bing and Ecosia or forcing Google to show the English language version of their site by using https://www.google.com/?gl=us&pws=0&gws_rd=cr (from there you can sign into Google in English).
