Freedom VPN and problems

I have been using Tunnelbear  VPN for a while but when  and stopped working I was recommended Freedom and yesterday I extended my F-Secure with Freedom. I tried it on and it worked! I was really happy. This morning I tried again but now it doesn't work. It says that they can see that I'm using a Proxy and that the service is not avaliable. 


I am currently living in Thailand and the opportunity to watch Swedish tv has been really good this last few years. What can I do to make it work? Is there anyone else with the same problem out there? Can Freedom do anything to make it work? Change server ip adresses or anything?

    Hello @Mia73 

    May I ask you try the following steps to see if that solve the issue?


    1. Clean browsers history and cookies on your devices.
    2. Try to reset the DNS cache on your devices

    For windows OS:
    Open command prompt as an administrator and type the following commands:

    ipconfig /flushdns
    netsh winsock reset
    netsh int ipv6 reset

    For macOS: Click here to see the steps how to flush DNS cache on Mac OS
    For Android: Click here to see the steps how to flush DNS cache on android OS
    For iPad/iPhone: Click here to see the steps how to flush DNS cahce on iOS
    3. Close all opened browsers.
    4. Open Freedome app > Select the virtual location as Swedish
    5. Open browser and check your streaming website again.


    In the meantime, I will check this with our Freedome team and keep you update here soon.
