No avast, that unidentified network is private!!!
« on: January 29, 2020, 09:42:36 AM »
I set the damn thing to private everyday and everyday its reset to public.

How come windows can detect the network as a 3rd party vpn with a correct name but avast doesn't want to and just says unidentified network. Maybe if your vpn worked well, i wouldn't need to use another provider.

Hi Simon, same here, but only after a reboot.
I reported it a while ago - no final answer yet.

Good news, this is fixed in internal version and will be released to beta in 2 weeks.

Surely this bug should be squashed immediately in a background micro update ?
Releasing it in a beta in two weeks means users don't get it fir 6 weeks after release to regular program update.
