    HI @CommanderInC 


    When residing in any of the Persian Gulf areas, FREEDOME apps cannot connect to any of the FREEDOME VPN servers. Sometimes the VPN connection initially succeeds, but stops working soon after that.


    The use of VPNs is restricted in the Persian Gulf area countries, and local Internet Service Providers block VPN connections in their networks. This prevents FREEDOME from working. Therefore, we do not have control over this.



  • Fine with your reply regarding freedome but I was actually wondering why some VPNs can circumvent the restriction while freedome can't
