When Freedom is on, DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN happens on many foreign websites, eg. chinese webiste

Physical location Finland, VPN location is using Finland, Espoo

 

When Freedom is turned off, no DNS issues occure.  This started to happen about half year ago. Is this only happening to me or do anyone else have the same issues?

Hello H4h4gG4,

 

We saw a similar post here about Freedome DNS error with a chinese website.

 

This is a case where China is blocking users with VPN. China prevents access from FREEDOME IP addresses to there even when the user would not be within China. We’ve got a knowledge base article about this here. China has been expanding their VPN blocking considerably in recent times – they’re blocking most of the VPN providers, not just us.

Hello @H4h4gG4,

 

May I know the name of your browser?, and version as well?

 

Are you getting the error when you using Finland, Espoo location on your machine? have you tried to change the location and see if there is any change?

 

Anyhow, I will send you a private message with some basic steps. You can try the steps to see whether the issue resolved.
