VPN - BT.com UK

edited July 2022 in VPN

Up until 4 days ago I have been able to login to my BT emails whilst using VPN on my desktop and have done so since installing 12 months ago.

All of a sudden I am no longer able to login to BT to access emails or my Account whilst VPN is in use, but whilst on the login page, if I turn VPN off it logs in. This appears to be the case for a number of people using other branded VPN's.

Is there anything I need to do to rectify this? BTW I'm not tech savvy, so needs to be in simple terms

Many thanks


  • Hello @Nett and welcome back to the Community!

    Do you encounter this connectivity issue with other websites / apps as well? Or just with BT?

    This appears to be the case for a number of people using other branded VPN's. - Some websites have implemented a system to detect VPNs and do not load or display errors if the Internet connection is filtered through a VPN. If this was not the case before, it is possible that BT made some adjustments on their end. I would advise to ask them what their policy is, concerning the VPN.
