PureVPN Not Connecting When I Choose a Country

I don’t know about you guys, but when traveling, I ALWAYS want to be able to access my favorite show, stream my favorite playlist, or use my favorite VPN to keep my personal info secure. Unfortunately, when I try to use any of these functions while abroad, I often run into problems. Sometimes the app doesn’t load at all, others it takes ages to launch, and sometimes it works but all my traffic gets blocked. Sometimes everything just works fine and I can use my VPN without any issues but most of the time, I have to deal with problems as soon as I step outside of my home country. This can be incredibly frustrating if you’re depending on your VPN to keep your personal info secure while you’re traveling. Hopefully this article will help you avoid some of the common issues that arise when using a VPN while traveling.

Problems Launching Apps

One of the first things you will encounter when launching an app while abroad is the language option. Most apps will only accept your choice of one language, usually English, and then everything will be in English even if you don’t speak a word of English. Depending on which language you select, this might be difficult or impossible to use. Some apps take a little bit of time to figure out how to use but once you do, it’s usually pretty straightforward.

Another issue that sometimes pops up when launching apps is location. Most apps will only work if you are located within the country that is the default option for the app. If you’re outside of this country, you will either have to find a way to enter the right location information or find a way to change the app’s location so that it can operate correctly. Some apps are designed for a specific country and will not work outside of that country. It’s worth checking the app’s documentation before you use it to see what is and isn’t supported outside of your home country. If you’re not sure which app is best suited for international travel, choose an open-source app that can be accessed by anyone and it won’t matter where you are. This way, you can be sure that you’re not limiting yourself to a specific country and that the app will work regardless of where you are. Since most VPNs are designed to protect your privacy, it’s worth checking out the documentation for these apps to make sure that they don’t collect any private information. Some apps are better than others when it comes to following privacy guidelines and it’s worth looking into what the app’s developers are saying about privacy before you use it. Even if you do nothing else but use the app to connect to a VPN, it’s worth downloading and installing it just to see what is and isn’t collected.

Problems Sustaining Connections

A big problem that sometimes pops up when traveling is the fact that your home connection can’t handle the high speeds that a VPN can provide. The good news is there is a fix for this. All you have to do is setup the VPN on your phone before you travel and then connect to it when you get to your destination. This will make sure that you can always connect to the VPN and that your home connection can’t drop your connection due to the speed. It’s worth noting that this will only work if the VPN is set up on the device that you plan on using abroad. If you’re on the move, it’s best to set up the VPN on the device that you’ll be using when traveling or at least before you leave. Remember: Your home connection will try its best to keep your internet connection alive and stable but the more you use it, the more it gets tired and the faster it drops connections. When this happens, it can be very frustrating to not be able to access your VPN despite the fact that it’s available. In some cases, this can even lead to you being disconnected from the internet entirely or, at the very least, experiencing extremely slow speeds.

Problems With Streaming Media

One of the most frustrating things when traveling is trying to watch your favorite show or movie and having it cut off in the middle. Sometimes this is because of slow speeds or other times it could be due to your home country blocking certain content. The solution for this is very similar to the one discussed above in the context of launching apps. You need to set up the VPN before you travel and then connect to it when you get to your destination. For whatever reason, some countries won’t allow certain content to be downloaded and streamed from outside of that country. If you don’t want to watch your show cut off in the middle, make sure to set up your VPN ahead of time so that you can connect to it when you get to your destination. In some cases, it’s possible that your favorite show or movie will be blocked but you can always find a way to watch it within your home country. For example, if you’re in Japan and you want to watch The Handmaid’s Tale, you’ll either have to download it or find a way to stream it in Japan. If you don’t have access to the latter, you’ll have to find a workaround. For example, you could try to watch it on YouTube or some other similar website where the content is licensed for viewing abroad. In some cases, it’s not possible to access the content even within your home country. For example, if you live in Mexico but you want to watch Stranger Things, you’ll either need to find a way to download it or stream it online from another country. In this situation, you could try connecting to a VPN server located in a country where the content is licensed or, at the very least, available for online streaming. This way, you’ll be able to access the content even if your home country decides to block it. Of course, this is all dependent on whether or not your ISP allows you to stream content from other countries. If they don’t, you’ll have to find a way to either pay to download the content or use a VPN to get around your country’s restrictions. The bottom line is that, in most cases, you’ll be able to access the content that you want to watch online while you’re abroad. As long as you connect to a VPN server when you travel, you won’t have any problems streaming content online or accessing the content that you’ve downloaded locally.

Hopefully, this article will help you understand some of the common issues that arise when using VPNs while traveling. Keep in mind that there are always solutions for these problems so long as you’re willing to do a little bit of research. Most importantly, make sure to use a VPN that is both easy to use and has good reviews. Once you do, you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation to the fullest and prevent any major problems from arising.
