Welcome to the forum @darui.

The function of a VPN is to encrypt your data over the internet preventing others to trace your actions, location and transfered data. The above article refers to a different thing.

Be aware that a VPN has a different purpose than an anti-virus or a malware tool. Not only does it not protect you against viruses or ransomware, but it can also give you a false sense of protection when not properly used. Besides, please keep in mind that with a VPN you are giving away all your internet activity in the hands of a private entity that is said to protect you. You'd better make sure they are a trustworthy renowned company.

Your Minix box is a great device. And as long as you keep it unrooted, as it comes from factory, it is very safe in what catching malware is concerned, however it is not bullet proof. So all the current advicing to safely surf the internet applies. Inspite or using a VPN, you should avoid malicious websites that offer you things for free and also the ones full of adverts promissing miraculous offers and benefits that go beyond comprehension, and avoid opening links from unknown sources.

Please feel free to participate under the forum rules. Someone will certainly always be available to sort any doubts or situations related to your Minix box and help you to enjoy it the most, as we do.

Works with Netflix! Then please tell what VPN service you use that can get past Netflix on Android . I use Nord on my Neo J50C-4 and that does get past Netflix on the win 10 environment via the Edge browser, and that gives access to the US service offerings which is far more than here in Asia ... But have not had success with the same VPN on all my Minix boxes .. So well done to you.

He uses veepn as per his updated post, I have removed the link from his post as per forum rules as this is considered to be commercial advertising. Mentioning the service by name is fine but please do not provide any external links:
