I am using a VPN app and I don't want google to give me Arabic searches if my VPN is Arabic (besides, the whole site is mirror-imaged, since Arabic is written backwards). I want every search on Google to go to either google.com or google.co.in. I have tried searching, but all of them are about Chrome in PCs, and not for Android.


Installed the VPN app and checked

Easiest way is to choose an English speaking location like USA instead of app choosing the location in auto mode

Alternatively, use other search engines available under Chrome settings → search engine. It appears Chrome picks up default search engine based on location, which happened to be Arabic based on the choice of VPN


You can visit these addresses below everytime you want to do a search or simply bookmark it. There is no way to add a custom search engine on the mobile Chrome version.

Google Search No country redirect or www.google.com/ncr

And now when you search with Google Chrome, it will always search using Google.com in English without the country redirect.

    "There is no way to add a custom search engine on the mobile Chrome version." Big bummer. Is it possible to "pin" my country settings and forbid Chrome from changing country redirect? Aug 20 '17 at 8:18
  • i don't think that is possible.
