Azure classic VM detected as VPN

Hello,

As of recently some of the sites I visit on my Azure Classic VM that is running Windows 10 detects Azure as a VPN. Using a VPN & Proxy detection tool it shows the IP is detected as a VPN. Has this always been the case? If so how can I disable Azure as being detected as VPN or is that not possible? These sites that are now detecting Azure as VPN were not detecting Azure as a VPN last week. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help

v/r

    For more details. If I try to log into a site that does not allow VPNs I get this message.

    'For security purposes, your required to turn of VPN, proxies and IP anonymizers, please address items, and try again'

    This just started happening.

    Thanks

    @James Shidell

    Unfortunately, there is not much that Azure can do as the block is made on the websites end. I recommend attempting to reach out to the website owner to have the block removed. You can also try to use a different IP address or region.
