How do I check if my VPN is blocking me from doing things?

To see if you’re using a proxy/VPN online, go to www.whatismyproxy.com. It will say if you’re connected to a proxy or not.

  1. PC: Check under your WiFi settings, to see if there is a VPN/proxy showing up.  
  2. Mac: Check your top status bar. If you have a VPN/proxy set up, there will be a black box with four grey lines and one white line. If you cannot see this box, you do not have a VPN set up. Click on this to connect/disconnect to a VPN/proxy. You can also navigate to your settings application, click network, and then see if you’re running a VPN/proxy.
  3. Harder to check on Android/iPhone and doesn’t really happen on the device. Check with your company's IT people to see if the WiFi is set up with a VPN/proxy.
