Using Brave iOS desktop and PIA VPN : This site cannot be reached
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. VPN works OK with Safari, Chrome, Firefox
  2. Switched to Brave and many sites cannot be reached
  3. Turning off VPN allows site to be reached

Expected result: Brave works with PIA VPN

Brave Version
Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Seems mostly to be commerce sites like Amazon, etc. When Amazon asked for verification once it showed that i was accessing from Ohio, while the PIA VPN setting was N. CA

I have access to PIA VPN, are you using the standalone VPN client or are you using the extension?

Hi there, thanks for your help. I may have figured it out, but it is sort of kluegy. I use the desktop client. I either have to turn off the VPN or manually switch to another VPN server to get it to work (even though it is set to choose server with least latency). The issue is with connection timeouts.
