@Gandalf_The_Grey , do you mind show some screenshots on this VPN implementation? I have no idea as I don't use the Beta version.
Unfortunately I think the VPN is not included in my beta license.

When i go to My FS Protection and click on F-Secure FREEDOME VPN it takes me to a page where I can buy a license.
All other options, FS Protection, FS ID Guardian and FS ID Guardian-controle do work.

It's in Estonian, but you'll get the idea :)

Old one was a bit clumsy. Now it looks better.
The VPN gui in FS protection it self?

My beta account seem to have VPN it's show up on my FS protection account but not able to download since device type pop up is blank might try it via browser Dev tool later.

@upnorth finally got the VPN part in fs protection (staged rollout?).

But what would the purpose of this Privacy-VPN?
Do we need to enable this all the time, even on trusted networks (example when at home)?
Or do we only enable this on untrusted networks?
There is a slight impact on the speed of my internet connection when enabled.

Will it replace Freedome VPN in the future?

Here are some screenshots in Dutch:

Some more info from F-Secure about the VPN feature:
It works like any normal VPN. If you want to hide your identity you can turn it on, but there is no need to keep it on all the time. We will release soon an update to Windows beta that makes the off state more neutral (gray instead of yellow) so it's clearer that there is no to keep it on all the time.

If you keep VPN on, there is the additional tracking protection, but it might cause trouble when accessing some services which don't like VPNs.
