    Hi guys,

    Please correct me if I'm wrong - OnePlus has blocked access to my VPN provider some weeks ago and it looks like there is nothing to do about it.

    I'm using OP 6 for almost two years now always had VPN and everything was normal - but following recent updates the VPN app can't connect using mobile data.

    I sought support to my VPN technical support and their feedback is as follow:
    "Indeed, OnePlus was suported and due to recent updates, they have completely shut down a lot of VPNs including {my VPN provider}. Unfortunately, there's really nothing we can do about it."

    It's not all bad news though - now I got a very good reason to change my phone maker - it's a shame though because I was looking for a far longer relationship with OP, but this is serious privacy concerns which I won't overlook.

    I wish I knew about these issues existed since the OnePlus 6t. I'm stuck with the OnePlus 8 Pro with the VPN app randomly getting killed. No more OnePlus phones for me.
