Hi,

 

I was given this option to download a top VPN service for free for one month, i just did that , now i just wan to know can i login in to adwords from working inside  the VPN as it changes the ip and location ...

 

Or should i use adwords with out VPN , i just want to be sure as the google asked me my original city when i tried login using VPN...

 

So is it safe to use VPN while logging in to my adwords ?

Hi Bishu,

No matter whether you use a VPN or login the AdWords account from any part of the world.
The thing matter is your email ID and password, you can access your AdWords account from any location.

To be more safe, you can opt 2 step verification for your Google account.

Hi Bishu,

The above said, you should know that VPNs are widely regarded as gray-hat or black-hat services and not as ones that facilitate legitimate use of the internet. Security algorithms are typically developed and implemented without warning therefore you never you when you will bump into issues with banks, payments etc where security questions and client identifications are of primary importance. Even if it works with AdWords today, it may not tomorrow.

In general, your location is not part of your AdWords identification process currently. You can sign in from any of the 5 continents as long as you use the right login info. (IIRC, bing uses a different process with geo-factors involved.)

BIshu, I would not like to say it is illegal because am not sure about it. However, many companies like banks frown on it quite bitterly because it may be used to hide your identity. Hence if you'd like to use it, you are free to do so. However, you are advised to do so with extra caution.

Best,
Lakatos
