    we have too problems with f secure in China. Last week everything was ok, and connection to Finnland Espoo was succesful.

    Now I can sometimes connect to HongKong...

    If the reason is windows and freedome updates, can someone do something ?

    Hi Jemipi and Evo1,


    China is actively blocking all VPNs. It seems that the blocking varies from time to time, and at this time it looks like they’re blocking VPNs more actively than for some time now. VPNs are banned from use in China.

  • After quick inquiry, all other main VPN providers works ???

  • And ios works well with Freedome so your explanation is a bit weak.....

    It is not only China, Im travelling for work in Iran and my colleague is in Qatar and issue started at same time for us. Some time at Sunday 14th Jan.


    And not able to connect still.



  • Same problem is back, ios (iPhone/iPad) works fine but Windows no ??

    Here the same,iOS works but Windows not... But the problem is „solved.“

    without words,I swapped to vpn express.

  • Me too, but I still would like to see also Freedome working as I paid for it !!!

  • Hopeless, is it now so, that Freedome is not going to work anymore with Windows ???

    Is Freedome China APPROVED VPN provider ????
