Any workaround for NordVPN blocking HULU?
It should work with Hulu as per Nord VPN website.
https://support.nordvpn.com/General-...th-NordVPN.htm

If the above does not help, you should contact their support.

Interesting old news about legality of VPN in Singapore. It links to a 2016 consultancy document.

https://www.mlaw.gov.sg/content/dam/...pyRgtAnnex.pdf

And reported on Straits Times.
https://www.straitstimes.com/singapo...-copyright-law

Looks like using VPN to access geo blocked content is still gray and the situation is still the same now in 2019 as in 2013.

The following Straits Times report was from 2013 but it is still useful now in 2019.

(We know in the end Starhub is able to cross carry EPL with SingTel).

Easier way is to contact their customer support. Express VPN is the top VPN vendor in the world and is said to have very good customer support.

Windflix is part of Windscribe.

Is the Carousell seller a legitimate resaler for Nord VPN?

best free psiphon. got singapore n malaysia. paid if u need high prtection can try hide myass. nordvon anyone?
Psiphon is said to be okay and even working inside China to bypass GFW but the speed is said to be slow. But I did not tried it in China.

The Psiphon Pro app from Google Play Store has quite some ads. So I just used direct download of normal Android client from the website. SpeedTest with Singapore server seems to be decent at least for web browsing. The pro version is not worth paying because there are better options.

Now for free VPN I use Windscribe 10GB free option, only use it occasionally here in Singapore for public wifi.

I tried to set up OpenVPN server on my 2014 Linksys WRT1900AC router but it did not work with the OpenVPN client on my iPhone 6S and Huawei P20. I guess the server version is too old. I will try to set up VPN server on my Raspberry Pi 3b+ boards later.

As for Nord, just scroll back and you will see some speedtest data and it is one of the top VPN behind Express VPN and the cost is also pretty decent.

The seller will give you his account which you cannot change or edit any settings/credentials. Since nordvpn can have 5 multiple logins, seems like seller sharing account.

HK for China youtube. Using QuarkySG's Firmware for DIR-880L (Got it at $35 at caraohell) on dd wrt. Very stable. I also now experimenting AC87 Merlin for another local to connect to LA. I think your AC88U is overheating. Did u use a laptop cooler? Power it using the router USB.

I will not go that route myself if I need to pay for a VPN. I kind of understand why people share Netflix subscription (I will not do that either if I am going to use Netflix). But for VPN?

No issues to share with close family members.

I am saying it is not really safe to share with unknown people from Carousell or other market place. You really do not know what the other party is doing with the account.
