Google Search may be blocked or redirected in some countries. Google search (https://www.google.com) may redirect you based on your device's IP address. For example, if you are in Germany and using a German network address, Google will automatically direct you to German search results. Refer to See results for a different country to change those settings. If you turn on the U-M VPN, your device will use a U-M IP address and therefore return search results as if you were at U-M.
