    Default PureVPN problems

    This vpn has worked fine for me in the past but lately it won't connect on either my PC Android tablet or laptop.I've done everything I can think of to remedy.Uninstall/
    Re install,change protocols incuding those on my modem(spark H659b).Swapped modem,tested on my mobile all to no avail.Messaged the Vpn helpdesk but only get re install and protocol advice which i have already done.I'm beginning to think their NZ servers no longer exist.Also I tried a "free vpn (Tunnel Bear) & that works. So is it me? Spark? or PureVPN? (And yes my subscription is paid up!!) Suggestions appreciated

    Just looking back at several reviews of PureVPN one common negative is it not working / connecting, so seems its a non fixed fault.

    There are several things you can try according to https://www.vpnranks.com/reviews/purevpn/not-working/ (Esp #6) But if other VPN's are working it could simply be a unstable program.

    Might be better to get a more reliable VPN heres a review from earlier this year 5th March -- I certainly wouldn't be using it, look at the CONS https://restoreprivacy.com/vpn/reviews/purevpn/ if you are going to use a VPN you don't want one that logs your activities. They state they dont but then got caught doing just that - so can you trust them ?

    ah, not so private after all

    I have to ask, just what are you using it for.
    I cant think of any good reasons for a home user , aprt from online banking when overseas & netflix .

    I think the answer is here...though epic fail on your VPN provider handing over your data.
