Wrong IP address keeps coming up

When I log onto a website on my Windows 10 laptop, like walmart.com or homedepot.com they see my address as Atlanta, Georgia. I live in Burbank, California. This Atlanta address keeps coming up all of the time. I have cleared the cache on my browser, I do not have a VPN.

How can I correct this?

If you notice an IP location is incorrect, this may be due to the internet provider (ISP) reporting incorrect location data. Another possible cause of this issue could come from users that are going through a proxy server that is being hosted in a different area than the user.

 

Hope this helps,
Jimmy
