Im trying to look for some store sites on my safari on my ipad. Like Wal Mart.. it keeps taking me to Mexican Wal Mart. And im doing this incognito too. I even type AMERICAN Wal Mart but it still only pulls up Mexican. Im trying to look for these sites to help my mom when we get back to the US. But for SOME reason any store site i pull up is gonna be Mexican. Do i actualy have to physically MOVE first?

Incognito mode does not hide your IP address; it prevents storing browsing data on your browser so that it can’t be retrieved later. You would need to add a VPN service to hide your public IP address.

As stated, some sites will use your IP address as an approximate location and will change the site to fit that location. Amazon has the ability to have multiple websites based on location too but you can change it if needed (i.e. amazon.co.uk, amazon.ie)

Using a VPN can show you in a different location so that should help.
