Issue:

How do I know if F-Secure FREEDOME VPN protection is working on my computer or mobile device? Can I verify it somehow?
 

Resolution:

When F-Secure FREEDOME VPN protection is enabled, your internet gets routed through the location you have selected in the FREEDOME user interface. Since your internet connection is routed, your true location is hidden. The web pages and services you connect you only see the IP address of the FREEDOME location you are connected to. You can verify that the protection is working by following these steps: 

  1. Ensure that the Freedome VPN protection is OFF
  2. Use an internet search engine to find a "What is my IP" service. With the service you can see your current IP address and ISP info
  3. Turn ON the Freedome, and select any of virtual location of your choice and verify that you are connected
  4. Visit the "What is my IP" service again to check your new current IP address and ISP info.  You should see a new address, one that corresponds with your VPN and the location you have selected
