How To Setup The Geo Fence For Warzone & Call Of Duty?

Both the VPN and Geo Fence can be used on their own or combined together, however if you wish to only use the VPN function then you can skip the step below.

If you do however wish to use the built in Warzone & Call Of Duty Geo Fence to play in other regions, then you will be required to select your games EXE in the Geo Fence tab of the software as shown below.





If you are from Asia, Middle East or Australia & New Zealand the Geo Fence will not work for you ( the VPN will though ) due to your geographical location being too far away from the majority of the games servers.

The Geo Fence is for use for users from the USA and Europe.

When searching for your “cod.exe” some systems may not display the .exe file name and as such you may only see “cod” in which case you should select that instead.

You must select your games exe location in the Geo Fence tab built into the vpn, the usual game exe locations are as follows:

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty HQ\cod.exe

or

C:\Program Files (x86)\Call of Duty\_retail_\cod.exe

If you can not find the exe file then you should google “Common file name extensions in Windows” and enable that feature in windows.

Once that feature has been enabled you should be able to see .exe file extensions and locate the cod.exe file.

Once the location is saved you should then start Battlenet or Steam, then select a country to connect to on the Geo Fence.

The geo fence allows you to control where your games are played which allows you to have more control over your lobbies, obviously the further the country is from your location the higher the ping will be.

To use the Geo Fence you should select a country on the Geo Fence tab as shown in the image below then start your game.






Using the Geo Fence ensures that 100% of your games are played only in the location you decide, giving you much more control over your lobbies.

Please note:

Windows firewall must be ON and NOT controlled by a third party such as Nortons, Avast or McAfee or any other app as they interfere with your firewall settings and the Geo Fence.

Your Windows firewall must be switched on at all times for the Geo Fence feature to work properly.

By default when you install Windows the firewall is on so unless you have turned it off, you don’t really need to bother checking.

You can check if your Windows firewall is on by typing in “Windows defender firewall” in your PC search bar.

You will then see the Windows firewall settings as shown in the image below.






If however you have a third party software managing your Windows firewall like Nortons, Avast or Mcafee then you will likely instead be presented with a message stating that the third party software is managing your firewall settings as shown in the image below:






If you see a message such as the one shown in the image above high lighted in red, then you should first try to disable it managing your firewall settings inside the settings panel of the vendor application and then restart your PC.

If that does not remove the message highlighted in red, then you will need to uninstall the vendor application to use the Geo Fence.

If your firewall is simply switched off on the other hand, you can click the “switch Windows defender firewall on or off” button where you will be able to configure the firewall adding the settings shown in the image below.






Finally click the “OK” button.

Your firewall should now be configured to work properly with our VPN & Geo Fence software.

If you ever have issues with the Geo Fence it’s always a good idea to reset your Windows firewall to default as this usually solves most issues one may encounter when Geo Fencing.

It’s very simple to get started and takes about one minute to get set up and running when using the VPN and Geo Fence.

If you need more in depth support, you can join our huge Discord community, or click the help button built into the vpn itself as many common questions are answered on the help page.
