I am considering getting a VPN like Nord or Express for added online security. However, I DO NOT want to jeopardize the functioning of my Jaksta software (e.g. Media/Video & Music). Can you please advise as to whether this might be an issue if I get a VPN service?
Similarly, would Privacy Badger for Firefox disrupt my Jaksta products?
We can't guarantee that Jaksta will or won't work with certain VPNs, but based on my own experience it can go both ways.
The way Jaksta functions is by implementing it's own proxy settings while the monitoring is turned ON, so it stands to reason that running a VPN could cause conflicts as it also configures proxy settings.
There have been reports in some cases where Jaksta does not work while a VPN is running. On the flip side, I run a VPN called IPVaniish that has always gotten on pretty well with Jaksta and I don't really recall having any problems.
My only suggestion is to trial any VPNs you might be interested in alongside Jaksta and try and find one that works.
Regarding the Privacy Badger service, I cannot say. I'm not very familiar with it and don't know how it operates, but again the only way to really know is to test it (ideally in free/trial/demo mode) and find out.
Sorry I can't help in a more concrete way.
Thanks Liam! It's important to me that my Jaksta products work as intended, so I may just steer clear of all that, unless I find something that I can turn on/off when needing to use Jaksta...
That's fair enough. It's not worth the bother unless it all works well together.
Like I said, I use one called IPVanish that I can vouch for. I don't know how it stacks up against other VPN's, but I've had a good run with it.
