Disallow Entries Using A VPN

A virtual private network (VPN) is a tool that allows internet users to hide their identity (with some limitations). It creates a proxied IP address to mask their true identity. It can make it look like they’re in another country when they actually aren’t.

While this can be a good thing for privacy advocates, it can also be used maliciously for people to try and cheat at contests. Therefore, SweepWidget provides you the option to allow or disallow VPN usage. You need to navigate to Security Settings. Then click on Disallow VPN Usage or leave it blank to allow VPN Usage.
