Hi Jeannie and Ruthann, More and more websites are detecting VPNs and they block your request. VPN providers then try to build ways so the websites won’t detect it. It’s a cat and mouse game. I think Glenn may have mentioned this as well in one of his videos. Try using a US connection (if you are in the US) for bank sites and it should work. When a bank (or other financial sites) “sees” something from a foreign country it has a good chance of being blocked. Same concept can also help with other sites that block you. If you are using Proton VPN, they also have a Stealth option in the settings. Glenn has also talked about this. It is hit or miss but overall it has been working well for me. Again, this is a cat and mouse game. Sometimes these options won’t work and you just need to not use the VPN for that interaction. I hope this helps you in some way.
