Android app warns about vpn when vpn is connected.

Even with my vpn (nordvpn) connected and the setting set to not warn it still shows the warning with the dancing popcorn.

Is this a bug or an intentional nag to buy your vpn? I don't so much mind if that's the case, but I'd like to know.

(Another thread mentioned something similar with pia but it devolved into recommendations about vpn providers.)

I also use NordVPN and I don't get any suggestions for turning on a VPN. I've read somewhere that there are two PopcornTime versions. Are you using the official one? Because the unofficial one always shows you a prompt to get a VPN.

I'm using the apk from popcorn-time.to. Is that the right one to be using?
