Got it working thanks. Already had a version installed that wasn't compatible. Uninstall and followed instructions.

Surprised at how smooth the likes of Netflix works with it! Seamless

Lads, a word of caution. If a VPN is important to you, you need to spend a bit of money. Ask yourself how a business can provide you a lifetime of a service that requires powerful servers running in expensive data ceners connected to a fat data pipe in multiple locations throughout the world, with technical expertise, customer service and legal expertise for a one-off payment of €14. It simply isn't remotely possible. They will close, or open a new service and mothball the old, or provide you with a service that is not what was promised, or sell your data, or more likely a combination of the above. It's simple economics - you cannot provide a longterm quality VPN service for €14. if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Mullvad or Surfshark.
Probably Mullvad overall, but it is more expensive.
Surfshark are on topcashback too (I only joined TCB for their previous offer), painless sign up.

I only really got it to geo unlock content and it works a treat.
I don't need it running 24hrs on my phone etc
I have a gmail account and use the Google suite. I'm happy knowing Google have my data and that I'm the product

I have been using it for months now with no problems.

If you have paid €14 and used it for few months you have already got your return. Anything after that is a bonus.

I have a lifetime KeepSolid account since April 2018, coming to 2 years, still working away. I paid $18 at that time, so definitely got my money worth.

Just to be clear, I only use it for streaming from certain services.

I have surfshark too, good VPN as well.

Don't forget 14 quid was a special offer. Full price for the service is 60 bucks a year.

Same here, got the deal at the time. Only use it for sane purposes. It had problems in first few months but like a good wine, it's gotten better with age.

I’ve signed up to SurfShark. I’ve only been using it for six weeks or so but so far so good.

I went with Surfshark too, seems good value at €44 for 2 years. It was working perfectly initially, but not anymore.

@el_gaucho, would you mind if I PMed you for a bit of advice?
