Using VPN and setting up different timezone.

Hi, one of my clients was asking me to work in a different timezone, and for that, he was asking me to use VPN and to set the different timezones, so before proceeding, I want to make sure is it not against the upwork guidelines. Is it fine to work like that?

- using VPN and selecting different country IP

- changing the device timezone to other than your actual timezone,
- and time tracking with it.

Hi Saroj,


Using a VPN is not a violation of Upwork's TOS. However, if there are any inconsistencies with your IP address, your account may be flagged to prevent unauthorized access to your account.
