Google Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network

Hi there

I sometimes get this message when using Google and it’s quite irritating:

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network.

Is there any way to stop or fix it? Only started occuring in the past week or so

Hi @chrism - welcome to Computer Forums :wave:

That is unusual - are you using a normal home internet connection? Have you been using a VPN or made any other changes recently?

Hi yes I have started using a VPN could this be something to do with it?

There’s a good chance that this is indeed the cause of the issue. Can you try turning off your VPN for a bit when you are using Google and see if it fixes the issue?

Thanks for this, turning off my VPN made the error go away!

Glad to hear this resolved the issue :slight_smile:
