When I make http requests to my website with Chrome Browser on android 6.0 (Nexus6) I saw that it is making requests to 130.90.151.44 instead of the IP of my webserver.

If I use another browser, it is connecting directly to my address.

If I use https, or ssh or antoher encrypted protocol, it seemt to go directly to my IP.

I did a IP lookup on 130.90.151.44 and saw it is owned by DoD

Is the DoD sniffing my traffic?

  • Is your phone rooted? Also, there's a long information on the same issue posted by another user on this XDA thread forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2610968 The OP says that a possible reason might be because his phone is rooted which caused this. Try using the a different SIM and check if the same happens. Also, he has mentioned that that its T-Mobile servers' IP lookup on his another reply. – Lucky Oct 23 '15 at 10:10
  • Are you using data compression? Maybe Google is using IP addresses that have belonged to DoD recently and the WhoIs did not update the information. – GiantTree Oct 23 '15 at 11:18
  • Hello, no my phone is not rooted. I have EU version, not SIM locked. He does not have the same servers as I do. Reading that topic it looks like it is not the same issue. – OlofL Oct 23 '15 at 11:52
  • @GiantTree yeah I am using data compression. Maybe thats it. Ill investigate further asap. – OlofL Oct 23 '15 at 12:40
