4 months ago I used VPN on my Android 7.0 mobile like OpenTunnel, SocksIP. Now, I've uninstalled the VPN, but when I use certain websites, they said VPN/proxy detected and I can't sign up there.

One more thing I want to share is that the VPN proxy detecting issue is just on my Zong SIM. When I use the internet on Jazz SIM, then I don't face this issue.

Someone guide me as to how can I solve this issue.

    Have you tried clearing your browser cache, website storage data and cookies? Alternatively test a different web browser app.

  • If you only encounter the issue on one SIM, then consider contacting them about this. This means that one of the IPs provided by them is considered a VPN proxy (whether it's really a VPN proxy might be irrelevant).

When you install proxy/vpn apps they create a vpn on phone if you delete the app, vpn may still be there until you remove it manually

From Settings>

  • Select Connections or Wireless & Networks
  • Scroll down to More Connection
  • Settings Select VPN
  • Tap on the blue settings cog next to the VPN name
  • Select Delete VPN profile

and you should be good to go!
