How Often does WIMI Update its Geolocation info?

reuben asked 3 years ago

I understand that WIMI uses ARIN info to assist with providing geolocation info. One of my IP addresses which I own had mistakenly used my billing address to 'swip' the IP address and although the server and operations are in the US, it showed my home country address and even my name which I felt was a breach of my privacy.

I had contacted the server host who managed to update the ARIN information with the correct address information but WIMI still shows the IP as belonging to my country. How do I go about rectifying this or would WIMI rectify this when it automatically queries ARIN again?

Hi Reuben,

We actually use the database from They send us an update once per month. My guess is that your information will be corrected in either the January or February update.
