BytezVPN Seeing ads

Post by carjo » Sun Jul 25, 2021 1:42 pm

First, I know nothing because I just installed the VPN. So please excuse my ignorance, but when I had NordVPN (sorry!), their VPN blocked all of those pesky online ads including the gif ads. Is there a setting I should be using with this VPN? I have only two profiles loaded, the two in the west coast of USA, West2. And may I ask, what is the NoAds profile’s meaning/use? I’ve tried both profiles (West2) to see if either gets rid of ads in Safari, alas, neither does. I use only Safari and no other browser.

Thank you most kindly.

Hi there, no, I’m not using Private Tunnel. This is regards to the iOS and Safari when on the BytzVPN and OpenVPN together. These ads are soooo annoying, and when they are animated that’s even worse!

Thanks for your quick reply though.

It is funny how BytezVPN Boast that their service does remove ads and yet the user experience is that it does not ...

Also, he should have named it braxVPN :lol:

For clarity; when he says "Unfiltered access" and "Ad filtering" .. he is lying.

If he filters out Ads then he is filtering your access .. You can not have both.

Also, when he say "does not keep logs", does that include not keeping the logs required by Federal Regulations ?

Anybody remember lavabit.com ?

People who make bold claims are often hoisted by their own petard.
