    I have been using VPN (Astrill) for a while ... more for watching movies.

    Now Astrill wants to suspend my account because it detected I have GSA & RankerX installed even though I have not run any backlinking yet!
    I asked them to reinstate my account and they warned that my account will be permanently banned if I ever run SEO while connected with Astrill.

    Do you have the same problem? Is it just Astrill?

    They don't even look that cheap to be honest, I am sure there are better solutions out there.

    Also if you have not run either of these software through their service how would they know you have it installed. Scanning your system for installed software would be a huge issue for me. I cannot vouch for them but I would say that it is unlikely they could know what you have installed, is it not likely that you accidentally ran one or both of the software while you had the VPN enabled?

    Either way you may want to start looking for a new VPN that isn't so fussy about that shit.

    I have never had any problems with PIA (Private Internet Access), I have RankerX installed as well.
    Nothing negative to say about them, also the best VPN to the price IMO.

    When picking a vpn service, pick those that allow running seo tools, most popular ones dont as they suffer losing ips.

    The main problem what I was facing during GSA,was the IP issue and that banned my Local Ip which was really bad of that.

    I think Private Internet Access will be best option, as Astrill policy not allow tools, mostly for manual work.

    I will want to go with PIA but Astrill will not refund the unused subscription if they ban my account.

    So I have wait for my subscription to expire before i can book PIA. :(

    If I have VPN (not Astrill), then there is no need to buy private proxies for my seo activities such as scrapebox, kotent machine, gsa ser or rankerx?
