IP Geolocation

Your guide to testing your websites and mobile apps across different countries and states using IP Geolocation.

Note: IP Geolocation is available under beta access for Live & App Live. It is an Enterprise feature for Automate & App Automate. Contact sales for details.

Introduction

BrowserStack’s IP Geolocation feature allows you to simulate website and mobile behavior from different locations by selecting IP addresses hosted in 60+ countries and 30+ states around the world. By incorporating IP geolocation into your tests, you can verify scenarios such as localized pricing, languages, product listings and much more.
With IP geolocation enabled, traffic to your website or mobile app will originate from an IP address hosted in the country you have chosen. With over 60+ countries and 30+ countries to choose from, you can now test how your website or mobile app behaves across the world.

Note: Have questions? We are happy to help. Contact sales

Testing private websites

Note: This is an Enterprise only feature for both Manual Testing and Automate Testing products. Please contact sales if you wish to explore the Enterprise plan.
Note: Testing of websites on localhost or intranet is not supported with IP Geolocations

If your website has a public DNS entry or has a static IP and is behind security layers, you can get IP Geolocation to work by doing inbound whitelisting for the IP addresses of our Geolocation proxies.

You can get IPs for inbound IP whitelisting for IP GeoLocation using our API.

You can create an automated script using the following information, in order to get IPs to whitelist or remove whitelisted IPs which are no longer valid:

  • API URL Path: https://www.browserstack.com/local/api/v1/inbound-ip-geolocation
  • Basic Auth Details:

For example, if you try to make a cURL request, you can use:

curl -u "YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" 
https://www.browserstack.com/local/api/v1/inbound-ip-geolocation
Warning: The underlying IPs for various countries can change for network optimisation or maintenance reasons. Please ensure that you request your account manager or customer engineer to be subscribed to email notifications.
