So I'm just wondering, since I'm now effectively a permanently VPN'ing currently (due to the recent NF 'crackdown') how this will affect the GZ visiter info?

How many others are here on a VPN, or geolocated as elsewhere and seen as foreign visitors?

I know certain methods work selectively, but I must say it's quite fun to see USA 'Adsense' at work here too :)

If I were to VPN permanently I would configure my NutFlax device to use the VPN and just use my regular internet connection for browsing on other devices.

Unfortunately I can't control the atv3 via the iPhone 'remote' app, or AirPlay to it, unless both the phone and ATV are on the same wifi link. So although the phone can connect 'directly' to local dns'd wifi if needed, in practice I've found it little different in daily useage?

My laptop et al is locally routed, but tbh most of my browsing is now on the iPhone 6, since the screen size is now sufficient for general browsing purposes, and the form factor is incredibly more readily available too.

All that aside, does anyone else VPN constantly?

What can I say, I love the 'no wires' look :)

Nothing changes for us. You might get pinged by Cloudflare with a CAPTCHA depending on your service though.

Well, as posted in my 'can't change router' thread (closed forum) unless I can do this in win 10 ICS it's just a "too hard basket" since I don't even know how long the VPN supplier will hold up to NF with a statement in their T&C saying they don't support geo-unlocking anyway. What else is a paid VPN for anyway? \_o_/

Yep. PBR to specifically route traffic from my Roku via VPN.
