Further Information

The script is powered by Nekudo public geolocation API (https://geoip.nekudo.com/). This is a third-party API, hence its availability does not depend on Nexthink.

Restrictions

  • Service restrictions may apply when massive API use is performed from the same public IP in a short period of time. Therefore, the script is intended for individual device geolocation.
