    I had no issues downloading or using the VPN. Previously I’ve had issues finding a VPN that works in Iran, Turkmenistan and China, so it would be good to see how this VPN holds up in these countries – I will have to report back if I ever visit these countries again 🙂 Thanks for the free download!
