VPN, remember to switch it off!


Just got back from 10 days in Europe and impressed with general acceptance of Google Pay, almost don’t need cash. However I was a bit puzzled at one supermarket where my contactless payment would not work, the phone indicated the payment with the blue tick but it was not registering with the till. It wasn’t until later I realised I had left my VPN on from when I had been using a free wifi at a cafe earlier and recalled from this forum someone else had a similar problem.


I wish there was a ‘whitelist’ of VPN servers we could allow. I generally always have my VPN on, and I know in a few apps I can whitelist servers, or even countries. Lastpass is one as an example.


Encrypt.me VPN sounds like it would fit the bill for you!


I use ipvanish. I need it for the speeds
