Do you update your location when you are travelling?

I was wondering if you guys update your location on your profile when you are traveling and working. I mean the location does not represent you nationality. It rather represent you current location right? So what do you guys do with it?

There is nothing to do with it. I just keep my Anti Virus up-to-date, rest assured.

Not sure how this reply is relevant to the question asked.

My Anti Virus takes care of all these things i.e. based on dynamic IP addresses used while roaming.

So why do you need to take care of the dynamic IP while roaming?

Pardon me, I am NOT taking care of IP, it is self detactable.

No, DO NOT update your location when you travel.

 

Update it if you move permanently, but not if you are travelling.

So lets say you are staying over for 3 months and you are following the time zone of that country. So in that case wouldn’t it give a wrong indication of your availability and time zone if you do not update the location?

Hi Md,

Thanks for checking in. It's unlikely to cause an issue if you are travelling for a few months and do not update your location. If it does raise any flags on our end (more than likely in conjuction with other account discrepancies), we'll more than likely ask that you complete ID Verification if you haven't already. Your passport, assuming you have it with you on travel, should suffice.  If however, you are going to be away for an extended period, such as moving some place due to a work visa, then in that instance you should make updates to your account location.
