Anyone know why a food delivery/pickup service is blocking your IPs?

    Hi @CrimsonTide

    It is very much likely that IPs originating from outside that country might be blocked by the company.

    Be sure that you are using the server of that same location or use another server of the same country if available, or just try to reconnect. If you are using the US server, for example, then try other available servers (East Coast, Northwest, South, Southeast and West Coast) or try to reconnect to that same server and try again.

    one would think so, however, ChowNow is (was!) completely blocking all IPs for your service regardless of country. I was even getting a 503 for their website portal. I tested without vpn on and it worked fine


    it now seems to be working again with vpn active. Go figure.

    Hi @CrimsonTide

    From our findings, this might be the issue with this site using Cloudflare.

    Cloudflare has been seen lately blocking Freedome and there has been reports of other websites using Cloudflare blocking Freedome as well but we our working with our team on how to rectify this.
