HTTPs sites make me prove i,m genuine

Recommended Posts

Hello , 


I am a newbie to VPN use .


My issue is with sites like Amazon ,pay-pal , Ebay , and some other utility providers and Job agencies . 

Every time I Try to log in they say something like' theres a problem we just want to make sure its you '  then they send a security code to my phone or email  and I have to type this in to proceed .


How do i get round this without actually logging out of VPN because they way this stands I would rather not bother with a VPN at all  as its giving me a headache with having to go through a security check every time I use the sites above .

How are you supposed to fix a feature?

It's there to protect your account from being accessed by other clients than yours. And there is no option to turn that off, of course.

» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.


» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.

The worst challenge is the Captcha that puts up 12 images and asks you to click the ones that have water (in a river, drain, ...) and then repeats again and again with "signs" or something because maybe you made an error.


Probably the sites that do the security code sms to phone etc are ones that are used repeatedly such as your online banking, and so are worth entering in Eddie Preferences/Routes so they are outside the VPN - that is what the feature is for.

But you do not have the protection of VPN encryption, as Treiberschreiber suggests, so beware "free wifi" etc.

I expect you would get fewer challenges if using an Air server in your own country, if possible.
