I know that using of proxy servers is forbidden on Yarold.

But... Avast antivirus offers (paid feature, of course) using of maybe 30+ proxies from various countries. They say that it helps you circumvent the geoblocation on Youtube for example - "this video is not available in your country" problem.

Are even those proxies banned on Yarold and if I use them and forget to switch them off before clicking on Yarold, I risk a ban?

I probably described it wrong, my bad.

It's a VPN (virtual private network), not exactly a proxy... https://www.avast.com/secureline-vpn#pc is the thing I am talking about.

Good for the "video is not available in your country" stuff on Youtube for example. Seems as a good thing, but with "no proxies here" it is dangerous to use it... one might forget to switch it off before using Yarold and... boom. So I want to be really sure if even VPN is forbidden here or not.

I have read the thread about proxy use - https://yarold.eu/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=7450 - but I am not sure if VPN are treated like proxies or not...

If your original IP cannot be seen then its a proxy. Some games don't allow proxies either, so link clicks may not count.

Making a mistake turning it off wont get you banned.

OK, my friend.
