Many exchanges can now choose to disallow a user or require requests based on their location. This can pose a problem for traders using Autoview, which runs locally on the machine that is running Chrome. However, by using a VPN to secure your requests and change the location of your requests, or by running Autoview on a different machine, you can abide by these restrictions and trade safely and efficiently in the your favourite market.
Below are some tips and suggestions on how to maintain these restrictions:
Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN)
One of the most effective ways to ensure country-specific trading requirements is to use a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN allows you to connect to the internet through a machine in a different location, making it reroute your requests to use the different location. This can be useful for accessing exchanges or trading platforms that would otherwise restrict your location.
Use a Virtual Private Server (VPS)
A virtual private server (VPS) is a remote computer that you can access and control through the internet. By using a VPS, you can install and run Autoview or any other trading software on a machine that is located in a different location. This can help you abide by restrictions that are based on your Internet Protocol (IP) address or physical location. Additionally, using a VPS provides an added layer of security by isolating your trading activities from your personal machine, and also allows you to more easily keep running the bot 24/7.
Please keep in mind that using a VPS may incur additional costs and that it is recommended to choose a reputable provider and follow best practices to ensure the security of your VPS.

Look for alternative exchanges if you are unable to trade on a particular exchange due to restrictions.
Consider looking for alternative exchanges that support your desired market or currency. There are many exchanges available, and each has its own unique set of trading pairs, supported countries, and regulatory compliance requirements.
Stay informed about regulatory changes.
Regulatory compliance requirements can change rapidly in the cryptocurrency space, so it is important to stay informed about any changes that may affect your trading activities. Joining online communities and forums dedicated to an exchange, market, or currency trading, or following news sources that cover regulations can help you stay up to date on the latest developments.
