      You can Validate a specific IP address (2). Use it to validate an IP address different to your current IP address. For example, enter your real IP when you are accessing this page while being connected to VPN or enter your home IP while you are at work.

      Another option to validate your IP address is to Validate your IP using a web address (3). By choosing this option you don’t have to sign in to your account on our website each time you want to validate the IP address.
