I had an idea for configuring pfSense with VPN providers (I am using NordVPN and ExpressVPN). As most VPN providers let you connect multiple devices, I have my pfSense router configured for four client connections to NordVPN and four client connections ExpressVPN. I then give each its own gateway so I have eight VPN gateways, then I add all of them to a tier 1 gateway group which is what I assigned most all of my device to as a gateway in the firewall settings. The effect is that my traffic jump around to eight random VPN endpoints to the internet using two VPN providers. I seems to work, although I noticed to YouTube and other ad sites some times will show ads for any of the eight random countries, some times (not often) sites pop up in the wrong language, but I tend to use the same sites and don’t go out far on the internet, so I don’t have any problems. I also know as a developer HTTP has a language header, but my guess is that most sites don’t utilize it. I was wondering what you folks think of this solution? Including Steve. I also don’t remember Steve weighing in on ISPs spying and reselling data, but Leo talks about that in the ExpressVPN ads.
