    HI i have been trying to get PIA VPN on here but have not managed to.The guy at PIA was very helpful and showed me all i had to do but still no luck.I did all this I have had it on my PC for over two years its so simple on a PC. It could be that i have have trouble with the two clicks you have to do ob a Mac.

    Because the VPN offered by Opera isn't a fully functioning VPN. It's more like a proxy server. So if you're needing the full protection of a VPN, especially with heavy in to peer-to-peer sharing, it won't really cover your tracks.

    Depends. If your router supports VPN you can do it there, or use their app (I have Nord on my iPad and Mac).
