Can Betfair detect VPN?

Betfair may not be accessible to users in some countries where online betting is illegal, or Betfair is specifically blocked. If you try to open the website from such a country, you might receive a notification saying that you are not allowed to access the website.

In order to access the website, you can use a VPN, because it can mask your real IP address, and thus hiding your location. This allows you to access the website, but it is still considered to be illegal.

Using a VPN will also allow you to add an extra layer of safety to your transactions, as your data travels back and forths via a `safe tunnel´. Your financial, as well as personal data, is more secure over a VPN as compared to the open web.
