Blocking Users by Country

This example shows you how to restrict your content from a list of countries.

We use the ISO 3166 ALPHA-2 Country Codes. You can curate a blacklist or whitelist of your own by looking up the countries you'd like to include at ISO 3166 Alpha-2.

// List of countries we want to block
// To see this in action add your country code to the array
var blacklist = ['US', 'CA', 'UK', 'IN']
// Getting the country code from the user's IP
$.get("https://api.ipdata.co?api-key=test", function (response) {
// Checking if the user's country code is in the blacklist
// You could inverse the logic here to use a whitelist instead
if (blacklist.includes(response.country_code)) {
alert('This content is not available at your location.');
} else {
alert("You're allowed to see this!")
}
}, "jsonp");

This simple example shows an alert with This content is not available at your location if the user is from a country in the blacklist.

Alternatively it shows an alert with You're allowed to see this! for users that are not from the countries in the blacklist.
