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 @anon92292451 - welcome to Computer Forums 👋

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!
