Some websites will send notifications to you if your latest log on location is very different from your normal usage pattern. Others will send notifications for every login.
Puffin is a remote browser. The real browser is running on our servers, which is located in San Jose, California, U.S and Singapore. Once our server renders a webpage, it sends the results to Puffin client app, and the app displays the result in a certain sequence.
When you use Puffin Browser to log in to your accounts, websites receive the IP address of our servers in either Northern California in the United States or Singapore.
In both cases, if you are sure you have just logged in, then there is no need to worry.
If you are unsure, you can check your current Puffin server's IP address against the address provided in the notification email.
You can use Puffin Browser to access the following website, and you will see your current server's IP address. Your device's local IP address as seen from our servers will be shown in the X-Forwarded-For header.
In most cases, Puffin Browser performs much like a proxy server.
