I have NordVPN which I seem to recall was always working with no issues but for a little while I seem to have stumbled into an issue at some point. I fire up NordVPN on my Android phone (S20+ 5G) which is running on Boost Mobile. Then I use Brave or Chrome and try to navigate to a web page (OzB, BBC or The Age) and it just sits there and the page never connects.
However if I turn on my Wi-Fi and connect to my home network the VPN software functions perfectly. Turn off Wi-Fi and try to access the pages again and it just sits there.
Anybody know of anything glaring that I can look at that may be causing the issue? It is very odd that it works fine with Wi-Fi but via mobile data I get nothing.
SOLVED - If anyone else experiences something similar then all I had to do was go into the VPN settings within the app and choose OpenVPN (TCP) and the VPN protocol option. Did that and it started working. I think I had it on Use Recommended prior and it was Customer Help who advised of the change to make. I don't know why it worked with the VPN protocol as it was when using my wi-fi but not Boost but hey…..it's now sorted.
