I keep getting frequent pop ups that Malwarebytes is blocking numerous IP address from a VPN I just installed called Private Internet access. Any ideas how to stop this?  

   Thank you!

This seems similar to the post I just did earlier of AirVPN. MBAMs web protection module blocks the server IP address of VPN. Tagging it as "compromised". 

Atop from "using a different VPN" advice, I temporarily circumvented the blocks by adding the VPN app in the allow list>allow an application to connect to the internet. 

I do not know if adding a VPN to "exploit protection>protected applications" is okay...I was thinking about it but have no idea what benefit will it give.

Perhaps someone whose using a VPN other than MBAMs own PrivacyVPN can lend some insights here please. 

I with @Damos seeks help and sound advice here. Thanks and pardon if questions seems elementary to techies here.

Cheers!

Now you just opened up the computer to web threats.

If anything (other than changing VPN's) I would undo that and add the VPN to play mode to not have to see the warnings and still be protected.

-- Thus that is a more sound advice there! Great mate!
