someone pleasE?

A VPN(Virtual Private Network) will mask your ip address and help you access some region-restricted content, it has a lot more features ofc. Squid kinda does the same but i don’t feel comfortable with it for some reason. Here’s more info about VPNs: https://www.howtogeek.com/133680/htg-explains-what-is-a-vpn/

Oh wow, you probably should wipe the VM and use something like openvpn instead. Or at least uninstall squid. That app is not a good idea at all imo.
