Dear Google, I'm not in Australia !!!


This started happening recently. Google thinks that I'm in Australia. redirects to instead of and this terribly annoying. I don't really know how or why this happening. But I know for a fact that I'm not in Australia. I'm in Maldives.

I tried going to and saving my settings, but that doesn't help if I quit and relaunch my browser.

Google says:
Bookmark This is an alternative web address for that always takes you to without redirecting you.
Google, you are not detecting my location correctly. Not even close. Please fix this. Thanks.
