My personal "theory": when I need to use a VPN as I'm in a public WiFi, the speed is the issue. We are really discouraged to use internet in these conditions. Opera browser (and some other apps like Chrome browser) released a "data compression" and "ad killer", but really, the speed is the limit.

My suggestion: allow storing things offline (mails, webpages, etc.) and then take this advantage of preloaded things when you're at the VPN.

Here are my 2ct/pennies ;)

I am an Austrian citizen living in the UK and sometimes I want to have an Austrian IP Address - would it be possible to get an Austrian Server up an running? - Cheers.

My second issue would be a Killswitch that would work this way:
a) if no VPN connection is active, block internet traffic completely
b) if VPN connection drops, block internet traffic.

Implemented in a form of "protected mode" to never come in contact without VPN cover.

- To Put back the Korean server.
- To have a way to connect to VPN without having the program installed (you could log in with your vpn account and configure it on windows default VPN configuration, like *i don`t know if i can put the name here* works).

Since Avast is "moving to the cloud", I have an idea.
Since all the VPN traffic passes through servers owned by Avast, why don't you offer the option to filter it?
I mean, I have an avast secure line licence and an avast premier licence for Windows. Since I own both of them, it would actually be really cool to have the option to have the Avast server scan my internet traffic looking for virus, Malware and spyware instead of using the antivirus installed on my machine. Why don't you implement and offer such an option to users who own both licences?
Main: Nod32  - Fedora Linux x64
Work: Avast Premier Beta  - Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 - Microsoft Official Extended Support
Server: Windows Security Essentials  - Windows Server 2016 x64

Not all servers are owned by avast.
They also rent servers.

I am Swiss living abroad and I'd like to have a Swiss Avast server for my VPN line. Please set up one.

Why our mobile portfolio does not include a free VPN local proxy no root? And then, the VPN features as premium? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.faircode.netguard&hl=en
