Chapter 14 too many requests error

I am getting a http429 too many requests error trying to get from https://ipinfo.io/json. Is there another service I can use instead? Or is there a workaround for this?

If you access the URL with your browser, do you see the same error?

Hello,

I have the same problem. When I access the URL with my browser it works fine.

GET https://ipinfo.io/json 429
IPAddressContainer.js:16

Hi Chris - I contacted ipinfo.io support, and they said the 1000 requests per day limit is only guaranteed if you have a sign-up for their free account. You can do that yourself, but if you would rather just use my free account token, make the request to this endpoint instead: https://ipinfo.io/json?token=2277ce4bac0347

Thank you sir! :slight_smile:
