We've added an option to our Live and Automated Testing platforms to specify from which country you'd like your test to run.

When choosing a specific country, we will configure the Virtual Machine your test runs on to use a proxy in the country you specified.

Once your test starts, all traffic will go through the proxy before reaching its destination.

This new feature makes it easy to test certain things that are only visible in different countries.
For example, a specific GDPR banner, an A-B test, ...

To get started, simply start a new Live Test and click the flag icon to change your country.

Or for Automated testing, use testingbot.geoCountryCode to run your automated test with a proxy in the country you specified.
