Apps or games on Samsung phone getting errors saying I am using a VPN or proxy when I am not

When I am either using websites or using apps I will get an error saying that I am using a VPN or Proxy when I am not. I have been getting this error for a week or two. It was not a big deal until I was blocked on a site and now on a few apps that I use to make money is blocking me from downloading games. I do have a vpn on my phone but I am not connected to it at all and have not been for a long time now. What setting do I need to fix or what do I need to do to fix this ?
