  1.  

    Just FYI, I've rooted all my phones for years and run xposed most of the time. I know most devs do not like xposed but for me it has never caused any problems; OpenVPN Connect works flawlessly on my S5 with AICP 6.01 at the moment. It all depends which xposed modules you run against whichever ROM so I would disable modules one by one if there was some problem, before removing xposed completely.

     

    That's a huge security risk.

     

    What is?

  3. Everything is on the home page; there is a button to 'Get AirVPN' which takes you to a page where you select an operating system and then you can download the client (Eddie!) and further down the home page on the right it says 'AirVPN Client - Eddie' quite clearly, with a screenshot.

     

    The NETWORK LOCK is controlled from within Eddie, not the website.


  4. For what its worth I use msecure because it was the only one that ticked all my boxes at the time - mainly because it works on Windows & Android and synchronizes automatically using dropbox or wifi. It isn't open source. I wasn't using Linux then and unfortunately there isn't a Linux version. So I run Win7 in a VM solely for the purpose of running msecure and it syncs through dropbox perfectly and quick.


  5. I use Firefox because its from a company that doesn't rely on collecting user data to feed them personalized ads. Chromium may be open sourced but it still calls back to mother Google and in Firefox you can modify the internals of the browser such as webrtc and the like and turning of geo-location. 

     

    Firefox also has more extensions/addons. For example YouTube related extensions that Google doesn't want on their store. Again, Firefox has more privacy extensions. Also Tor uses the Firefox code for its browser.

     

    So, as you can see, my main reason for using Firefox is privacy. Although chromium is faster than Firefox, I'd take the small slowdown for some privacy and peace of mind. Plus, all my extensions don't help the slowness factor in Firefox.

     

    Thanks for that @S.O.A. It pretty much matches my usage. Tend to use Tor Browser by default.


  6. -When creating a configuration using the generator, a user selects a region, for example Spain. The configuration then provides a single IP address through whatever protocol to connect the user to the server. However, there is more than one server in Spain, so how does the client automatically/dynamically choose the outbound server for a whole region if it connects inbound to only one IP?

     

    The config generator will pick the IP of the recommended server from those chosen. If you don't tick the box for 'Resolved hosts in .ovpn file' then the ovpn will contain a DDNS address which will effectively do the same at runtime if I understand it correctly.


  7. Your ISP will still know and log your IP no matter how you set up your router or anything else - the point here is that using a VPN makes your real IP irrelevant since the outside world only sees the Air Server exit IP.

     

    I use Linux these days so I don't know what the options are for Windows right now - others will - I don't remember Eddie doing anything with DHCP settings, yes it does but should restore them when you disconnect.

     

    If your DNS or DHCP settings aren't returning to their original setting after exiting Eddie normally then I would open a support ticket. Others here know far more than me about networks in general so I'll leave further help to them.

     

    There is an option in Preferences>Advanced to remove the default gateway, perhaps that is checked?
