It's sad to see basic features like allowing LAN connection locked behind a paywall. It's still one of the best free VPNs available, and I'm definitely gratfeul for it, but I don't like the direction it's been headed to recently. Edit: I totally respect that. I don't exactly have a right to complain as a free user. It's just a little inconvenient to have to disconnect the VPN to use the local network. Regardless, thanks a lot for the free services.

Our decision to offer certain features and functionalities exclusively on our paid plans is to ensure the continued availability of our free plan for users who may not be able to afford to subscribe. It's about striking a balance between offering a free service and providing added benefits to our paid subscribers.
