Worldwide compliance testing

Score 7 out of 10

It is being used to test worldwide compliance across multiple products.
  • It provides solutions for both web browsers (AdClarity) and any given device. We use it to test Xbox games, iPhones and websites.
  • The AdClarity browser plugin is convenient and fast to connect.
  • After training, anyone can use a GeoSurf solution.
  • It has been very difficult to set up GeoSurf for a device like an Xbox or Playstation, requiring significant experimentation and multiple devices daisy-chained and we needed to write detailed integration guides for testers. Device-specific solutions or guides would help tremendously.
  • Well-suited for testing and demonstrating any product on any device for worldwide compliance.
  • Can be used for latency testing, but there are probably better solutions available.
  • Probably not as well suited for privacy; could be used like Private Internet Access, but I haven't seen general adoption of GeoSurf for that purpose. This would not help with my role at Disney though.

[It's used by the] SEO department to simulate traffic to the website from a variety of GEO locations. The media and affiliation departments test the ads published by advertisers.
  • Great support
  • Has all the GEO locations I need
  • In 5 years only once I needed a specific location that was not available
  • Different login interface. When you enter your username (email address) then leave the interface to look for the password - the username disappears.
  • Have to re-login often.
I don't have a scenario in mind where GeoSurf would NOT be well suited... probably not ideal for streaming HQ movies.

GeoSurf features perfectly fit with international campaign management role.

GeoSurf is used by our campaign operations team that manages campaigns for various markets (with multiple advertisers) across the EMEA region. With GeoSurf it's easy to switch your browser to the needed country. This way we were able to tackle geo-settings on creatives, but we also use it for print screens to show the advertiser that the campaign(s) run on preferred inventory.

In addition to adjusting our geo settings, GeoSurf is also used for mobile emulation. With an increasing number of mobile campaigns, it's helpful to easily switch your browser into a 'mobile device' (e.g. Apple iPhone 6).
  • Flexibility to switch countries (if you need another country on your GeoSurf account, you can easily send a request to your GeoSurf contact).
  • Mobile Emulation.
  • Great support!
  • Experienced problems with the GeoSurf toolbar in several browsers (it's currently not working in Chrome for example).
  • Missing an overview of the contract (can't see how many countries we can add/how many change requests we can send, etc.).
Campaign management for multiple advertisers across EMEA-market
-Possibility to make screenshots of the campaign to show the advertiser that the campaign is live and showing on preferred inventory.
-Tackle Geo-settings that are applied on the banner (not showing up except if you're in the country).

Mobile campaign management
-Easily switch your browser into a mobile device (e.g. Apple - iPhone 6).

Be confident in your product's geo-location features after using GeoSurf to test them

We use GeoSurf to test our products as if they were accessed by real customers outside of our corporate network. This is vital since our products behave differently based on the user's geolocation.
  • GeoSurf is redirecting web traffic really well in order to simulate browsing from alternative locations.
  • GeoSurf has a good interface and is very easy to set up and adjust.
  • GeoSurf provides a very large number of possible VPN locations all around the globe.
  • One main thing to improve is that when GeoSurf is turned ON it routes traffic from idle browser tabs too. Would be best if only active tabs traffic is being redirected.
  • A widget to monitor traffic in real-time would be nice.
  • A way to program it to turn on/off the IP routing at specific times would be nice.
GeoSurf is very useful if your product has geolocation features and you need to test those before releasing it.

GeoSurf or ...?

We use GeoSurf to simulate a location for development and testing if we need to pretend that we are launching our app for another country to catch some regulation restrictions (if there are any). Also, we need to see if our app can detect the preferred display language from a location. Some country specific features (as built in video streams) need a fake location too.
  • Many items in country list
  • Fast connection
  • Works well for IOS 9.x
  • Some proxy servers are not available from time-to-time
  • County list could be extended
  • Does not work for IOS 10.x, since PPTP was removed from IOS, and GeoSurf did not provide any other solution.
If the necessary country is on a list - you can connect and have a stable and fast link almost as if you are in the selected location. But some locations are not listed, that is a con.

We use GeoSurf to test creatives when they are geo-blocked and can only be served in a specific region.
  • Testing geo-blocked tags in foreign countries.
  • It can be more granular. If you want a very specific area, sometimes you can't get too detailed.
  • Well suited for testing in another country.
  • Not so great for testing in a specific region or zip code.

At Fyber, my team of engineers use GeoSurf to test the features of our ad tech products and simulate their behavior in different world regions. It is useful both for development and problem diagnosis. In a previous role, at mobile search company Quixey, we used GeoSurf as a proxy for web crawlers.

  • Simulate network requests from different parts of the world in order to see how our tech performs from different regions.
  • Test how our system behaves with when operated from client devices that identify as from different world regions.
  • Test security and fraud prevention systems that handle global IP ranges differently.
  • Operate web crawlers anonymously and legally.
  • We sometimes receive proxies to blacklisted IP addresses that we can't use.
GeoSurf is a good solution for testing the behavior of app user traffic from different parts of the world.
For crawlers, GeoSurf is OK but provided some more attractive features and pricing.

In our department GeoSurf is used as a VPN to test foreign user accounts for localization purposes. This helps ease the localization process as many of our products are released worldwide in many different countries. It is currently only used by one department but that could change in the future, as our department heads see changes in the industry.
  • More than 120 locations of choice.
  • Better than VPN because they have actual servers in the locations.
  • More than one IP can be used per mobile device.
  • Expensive monthy cost.
  • Really only fit for large to mid sized organizations.
  • No individual plans for independent/small businesses.
This is great if you are developing an application that you intend to go worldwide. There could be a lot of reasons to use geosurf, some of which are, to be able to monitor ad campaigns that are geo-targeted (making sure that your ads are properly deployed in countries you choose), look at what my competition is doing, see what ads shows up on your site from a different location, etc.

We use geosurf to help view our video on demand service across 18 Latin American countries for QA issues and support
  • Has the ability to select multiple countries
  • Has more than one connection in larger countries for better reliability and coverage
  • Connects with little issues and at a fast speed
  • Does not disconnect user on any instance
  • Not all countries are available
  • Some countries fail to connect because of software update
  • Speeds begin to slow at early evening times
Well suited to view website pages using a local IP address in a specific country to remedy any QA issues.

[It's a] great solution if you are a professional who needs to change browsing locations on a daily basis. [It's] great to reveal sites that are not accessible in your location. Also allows you to interact with sites from different countries. It allows you to see how pages will look on various mobile devices. [It's] great for monitoring ad campaigns based on a specific location.
  • Browsing
  • Location
  • Professional
  • Pricing
  • Monitor ads specific to your area or whatever location you are using.
  • Browser toolbar makes the job easier.
  • Mobile app works just as well.

Surfing the Geo with GeoSurf

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use Geosurf for 2 main purposes:
  • Emulate mobile environment
  • Emulate different geo locations
These emulations are used to verify and troubleshoot ad placements.

  • Ease of mobile emulation
  • Ease of geo location changes
  • I don't really like the part where all the tabs are refreshed when i initiate emulation to either mobile or geo location. I tend to have multiple tabs opened and this is really frustrating.
  • I noticed I tend to get logged out using the Chrome toolbar. Is there really a need to log a user out from the toolbar?
Geo location changes are really easy to execute.

Mobile emulation could be better if it can also adjust view screen to the actual device size. Currently, I suppose it only masquerades the user agent. A full-size desktop mobile emulated browser isn't going to be the same as a physical mobile device.

GeoSurf Allows us to mimic our product behaviour in different countries. It's one of the only VPNs that works alongside proxy apps. It's being used though many departments especially our mobile department.
  • Fast connection
  • Works with proxy
  • Great Service
  • Mac app is a bit out dated
  • Sometimes hangs
When testing the product performance on other location from where our R&D is, it works well. It's still being detected sometimes by 3rd party as VPN / Proxy which is problematic.

We are using geosurf in our department to reproduce production issues and to troubleshoot geo location queries. Since our products are being used around the world, we need the ability to simulate logins from different countries With this need we found a great solution in GeoSurf. It's very easy to use and is giving us the needed platform for checking complaints that are arriving from around the world.
  • GeoSurf allows us to connect to our products the same way it was experienced by connecting from a different country, with latency and ISP limits.
  • It allows us to check blacklist and whitelist IPs and countries.
  • It is allowing us to reproduce real user complaints with success.
  • We need to have ability to check some other geolocation checks with simulation of GPS coordinates and other checks.
As explained, whenever you need to reproduce a connection from a different country, GeoSurf gives the answer. But it is limited to IPs/countries and does not allow you to simulate GPS/Wifi coordinates and connections.

It is used by multiple departments ranging from marketing to IT. Since we have multiple sites that allow access based on GeoIP we use GeoSurf when we need to troubleshoot.
  • Access web sites from a particular country.
  • Plugin is extremely user-friendly.
  • I don't think there is anything more with regards to our requirements.
One can access websites from different countries.

I manage the department that is in charge on all of our Marketing tools and technologies. In that capacity, I make decisions about purchasing new technologies and changing/implementing current technologies and systems. As such, GeoSurf is a tool I purchased for dozens of users in Marketing, including myself. It helps us to look at how our services are being seen in other geographies, operating systems and mobile devices, which we couldn't have done without a VPN tool.
  • simulating other geographies
  • simulating mobile OS
  • The automatic login seems not to work at times
  • The way it works makes our IT department to adjust security settings from time to time
It will work well for companies that need to simulate different geos and operating systems. It is quite easy to manage from admin point of view.

My company has customers around the world, and I lead a team that places and manages content for websites and mobile apps in 10 different languages in countries from Europe to Latin America. My team relies heavily on GeoSurf to monitor the content we place on those sites, as it is important for us to view the sites as they are seen in the countries where our customers are accessing the content.
  • GeoSurf is a powerful tool that allows us to switch from the different versions of our websites in country to country very quickly.
  • It has a very easy-to-use interface and toolbar which makes changing countries very easy.
  • GeoSurf has a mobile view which allows us to see what mobile content looks like in a given country within a web browser.
  • Occasionally a country will stop working for periods of time. They usually come back eventually, but can be a bit annoying when you need to see content in that country.
  • GeoSurf can interfere with the default browser proxy settings and interfere with loading content when it is turned off.
  • It's not really a GeoSurf problem, rather an issue on our company network, but some of my team are unable to access one country in particular, and we are having trouble getting this issue sorted by our IT team.
For what my team uses GeoSurf for, it is well suited for jumping from country to country to quality control content placements very quickly. For the most part it is reliable, efficient and fast, changing countries and loading content instantly. Our company uses it for a fairly specific task on only our company website, but for what we use it for, it is a very powerful tool.

GeoSurf is an essential add-on that is used across our whole organization. Since we are an international company with many localized labels and regulations to comply with, GeoSurf enables us to simulate location-restricted journeys and verify the user experiences.
  • Simple and intuitive interface, very easy to switch between proxies.
  • There is an Android app that can be used with the same account.
  • More locations or alternative servers can always be arranged, if need be.
  • There is no iOS app which is a big gap and we need an alternative product for such devices.
  • Our subscriptions is with shared and limited bandwidth, some users forget to turn off GeoSurf when they are done with the proxy thus incurring unnecessary costs. Would be good to have some reality checks implemented to avoid unintended long session.
  • The Android interface is little outdated, although it's still simple and quick to use. I'd prefer slightly more modern design, including usage statistics.
It's a great add-on for testing location-based user journeys. Sometimes it does not go around all geolocation restrictions (ie. video streaming) which is also understandable. Also since it's shared across the organization, the behavior of others in the network can impact the IP address (ie. black listing or temporary cool off).

GeoSurf is a must for your mobile apps

We use Geosurf to develop and validate our apps in all the territories we support. It allows us to validate the work our team is doing as well as analyze what the competition is doing in similar markets.
  • Allows us to use real flows and real banking information for final review of products before shipping to a geo beta territory.
  • On mobile, the app UI is a little confusing and not that easy for some of our users to understand. First time users usually need a little hand holding.
Geosurf is great for engineers and QA testers to validate work in foreign territories. However, the UI and flow of the app are not user-friendly for product and feature focused team members.

Being an international company we quite frequently need to test user journeys from an international customer's perspective. GeoSurf enables us to do this, testing the products we launch on a range of global IP's.
  • Logging in - very easy.
  • Selecting a country - very easy.
  • Quick access through control panel.
  • I would like to be able to use Geosurf on a a particular window, rather than having that IP active on all windows. This would enable me to make comparisons between different countries simultaneously.
Suited for product testing internationally.

We use this tool across our QA teams. This is to spoof across the world for Geo located specific testing. By using this service our company is able to test around the world without incurring extra costs. This also helps facilitate faster testing practices which increases the speed in which we get our products to the public.
  • Ease of use
  • Price point
  • The only reliable Geo Spoofing out there
  • Single User cost
  • Accuracy
  • Guides
It is well suited for trying to test around the world without leaving your desk. It can also help a tester or a producer track down Geo-specific issues that otherwise would go unnoticed until the game goes live. You shouldn't use it when you are just normally testing as it racks up costs.

GeoSurf Review

Vetted Review

GeoSurf is used here mostly by the marketing department for research and testing purposes. The main issue it addresses is that our company is located outside our main (geographical) interest areas. I personally use GeoSurf to see how our campaigns are being carried out and what our competitors do in our key markets.
  • Quick connection to web across different geos
  • Quick connection to web across different devices (and the combination of the two)
  • The main issue in my eyes is the very complex installation process, mainly finding the right app/software.
The best scenario where GeoSurf is useful for me is when trying to assess the quality of advertising worldwide and seeing where my team hits the spot and where it does less than a great job.
I can find out about new advertising spots and placements which are not as good etc. On top of that, I can check how my competitors are doing and what do they target in each and every geo.
