Personally i would uninstall both, and install warp plus first, reboot and see if it functions. If it does, more than likely a compatibility issues with both once gdata is installed. If it has issue after reboot, you will know it was not gdata but an issue with warp.
For sure it is compatibility issue, but this remains as mystery for now because i already did clean install and if i could giveaway the key i would donate it to someone..

How is the speed with Cloudflare WARP +?
Since im using brave with shields and warp+ together the speed is obviously faster than browser with ublock or adguard, dns speed is normal cloudflare speed i guess

my 100mbs connection is giving me decent speedtest results

I used every setting gdata had on/off to see if it would connect ethernet on, firewall bombarded me and i allowed and even turned firewall off but it didnt help me to connect to internet at all. i created firewall rules to allow warp+ + my ethernet but nothing worked , it was like playing with the beta version that is full of bugs

Even tried the wlan connection but that did not work. I could write problems more detailed but if i cant get it work myself i dont bother with it. Internet has no any help of g data as its not that big company than others do

Sorry im just bit angry against f-secure and g-data problems i had. It shouldnt take hours to set up something or get it working

Well you could reset the internet settings as cmd, uninstall the internet driver and reinstall it, or use WiFI for test if you use laptop, etc outside AV next time that might be work.

AV and VPN/DNS are mess up due to the service it happens.

There are 3 more pages that I know of to test ECH. I have all of them bookmarked just in case. For the third one you'll have to look if sni=encrypted/plaintext.

- removed trend micro
- removed google chrome
- removed adguard

-clean install-

+Installed F-secure total security
+Installed firefox beta (because using f secure on android, and beta channel of firefox has only about:config to disable media.peerconnection.enabled to not leak the ip address)
+ installed ublock origin ( in medium mode)
+ DNS0 zero as Dns

I have internet security f secure key for 2 years available if someone wants to contact f secure and enable it that way, just pm me

I have 100/60 speeds with isp normally and f secure is giving me same speeds:love:

Nice option in the parent control section. Thanks for the tip. I tested it today with 70 malicious links and the results were great.
Trend micro web filter is great alone, but even greater with high config + parental control. I just bought f secure because its easier to use on family devices , as you dont have to unblock sites manually with the mobile devices ( web filter being agressive)

Trend micro is light , great web filter and the mobile version is one of the best available, im definitely keeping eye on them in future even im f-secure customer currently
