TO download you may need an extra addon for.

Note - Popcorn time repositiries are based on Torrents and we all know what has happened to Torrent in the past.

Thanks for appeal.
You can use any VPN service of your choice, while the app suggests and detect only verified service.
Best wishes.

I have one of the recommended VPNs, purchased separately, not through Popcorntime, and am still getting an unprotected message. I got dinged by Comcast too.

It seems I have no choice but to download the vpn from popcorn time. However I already have a vpn.
So popcorn is not really free if I'm required to pay €70 for their vpn.
Am I missing something?

As it's already mentioned above.
You can use any VPN service of your choice, while the app suggests and detect only verified service.
And if you don't want to - just close the notification window.
Somewhere in forum it was explained that notification added after users ISPs penalty complains.
Cause some torrents are not allowed to be watched directly from several countries ISPs.
Best wishes.
