“IDN Safe” is a browser extension which blocks internationalized domain names to prevent you from visiting probable fake sites
IDN Safe blocks internationalized domain names also known as punycode domains. This helps you to identify them and will prevent you from visiting probable fake sites.
The use of Unicode in domain names makes it potentially easier to spoof web sites as the visual representation of an IDN string in a web browser may make a spoof site appear indistinguishable to the legitimate site being spoofed, depending on the font used.
With IDN Safe you can temporarily allow domains or whitelist them at all. By default they are blocked.
I made the Chrome/Chromium Extension “IP Geolocator” also available for Android. You can find it on the PlayStore.
This app shows your current IP address and geolocational information about it.
It also notifies you, if you have a broken VPN or proxy connection, when the country-code and/or IP address changes unexpectedly. You can set an alert with a special ringtone and or vibration.
You can also display your IP position in Google Maps or check for DNS leaks via browser (external service).
Please note, that the information about your location are fetched out of a database and may not be the same as your real location. This app shows your location like the websites would match your IP to any location.
