No. You must buy their VPN to watch movies. But they don't let you know this until you try to watch a movie then BAM! Hit you with an upper cut.

Upgrade the version, i`m not sure if it still supports the older one. It should route all traffic through vpn.
P.S: The VPN itself is not run by the Popcorn Time team. Instead, they came to an agreement with the VPN provider Kebrum, who are offering their services for free.

I would never support you to use the built in vpn instead I would suggest you to use Nord. I am using Nord and it works flawlessly with popcorn time. The reason of not using the built in vpn is plain and simple. It does't provide you the same level of security levels which a premium one gives.
Hope it helps :)

Hi - I have NORD VPN - but it doesn't seem to work with Popcorn Time. I have been notified 3 times, in the past month, of copyright infringement. What am I doing wrong do you think?

If you are sure Nord VPN is satisfying your protection needs - just ignore those alerts or turn it off in PT settings. Otherwise I suggest you to buy built-in vpn and forget about copyright infringement. Each vpn has its pros and cons, e.g. built-in vpn has a big advantage of Kill-switch and pretty fast connection speed but doesn't have a trial mode - so decision is on you.
