System being recognized as windows

– Please Write here your help request, –

Hi, For some reason my system is being recognized as windows instead of Linux system. This might not be such a big issue but I am a little concerned. Any Help is appreciated. I am on the Home Edition of Parrot OS which was installed last month on my system. Recently, when I logged in on Gmail and the usual security email was sent, it said that a windows device just logged in. Other than that, I was trying to download the ms teams .deb file from the MS website and it kept on showing me the windows .exe file download link, and when I logged in on my linux lite os and went to the same page, it directly showed me the .deb file download link.

  • Parrot version in use (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type cat /etc/os-release | grep VERSION):
VERSION_ID="5.0"
VERSION="5.0 (LTS)"
VERSION_CODENAME=bullseye
  • Kernel version (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type uname -r):
5.14.0-9parrot1-amd64
  • Logs/Terminal output (use pastebin or similar services):

  • Screenshots:

Website detects your system using User-agent. you can use any user-agent changer (firefox add-ons) to change it to Linux and try again
