In the recent update for ProtonVPN, they removed support for deprecated VPN protocols. After updating and looking in the (iOS) app, They removed IKEv2 and Openvpn (from what I remember). I regret updating since I used Lockdown Privacy (An app that blocks ads, trackers, and badware in apps) with ProtonVPN, which was only possible with IKEv2
Does anyone know of a free alternative to my previous setup?
In ProtonVPN you can enable “Net Shield” and turn on all the blocking options. This should get you a similar result though without the control of choosing your own blocklists.
I don’t know what methodology Proton uses for the blocking but anecdotally I noticed when trying it that it blocked native Apple ads in things like the News App so it seems pretty comprehensive.
Yeah I know that, but I don’t pay for Proton VPN. Netshield is on paid plans. With my previous setup, I was able to have a vpn and blocks ads and trackers for free. I should’ve specified though
https://Windscribe.com but it’s limited bandwidth for the free plan
Thanks for the suggestion! I was looking into this and I’ll def try it.
