Also, Zenmate VPN has some pretty ugly reviews online. Do a Google search for "Zenmate reviews" to read some of them.

I'm already logged into ZenMate. So basically, that logon doesn't really pertain to me. It could be meant for the payees for the faster service. And yes, it could also be malware.

However, as a matter of learning and exercise, going back to the first question. Whether it is malware, or just bad programming and sending the logon application to the wrong people, Either way, there must be some way to block this nuisance! That was my quest.

It doesn't fit into the blocking programs's category, where it can easily be blocked. So it's coming in via some other  means. And what is that  means? Firewall? Anyone know? I'm sure that it can be blocked, I just don't have the knowledge to know how to do it! That company has the knowledge how to by-pass barriers, foreign and domestic, where some countries censor Internet knowledge.

And I want to thank you guys for sticking with me on this topic. I really appreciate it. Your input is always welcome.

Just out of curiosity...

Does this happen in other browsers? Firefox? Konqueror, etc? Or does that Zenmate VPN only work through the Chrome extension?

You are right! I've been putting up with this for a while, but so far, found no way to block the invader login. With that link you provided, you will find that another  user uses ZenMate in another browser.

This time, I thought that I'd put another effort to try to learn how to get rid of this invader login. There must be a way! I thought with all of us together, we could learn and find a way to block that nuisance.

Cheers!

I have the FREE Zenmate for FireFox on my MX-16 and on my MX-15. Only enable it when I want to surf or access places I normally can not. Just tried it out, changing locations etc and everything works just fine. Have had it installed for nearly two years and it has never given me any problems.

You are lucky. I'm not known to be able to skate free when I usually get involved with something. This is just one example. I warned my wife about that. She thought that I was kidding. Now she knows I was really serious when I told her that, 30 years ago.

Actually, I use ZenMate all the time (such as now), to give the Gov't the big finger. I want to make them work for their bread, should they ever target me. Although it's true, I've nothing to hide. However, my private business is mine, not theirs! And not the commercial businesses that want to profit by selling my personal profile and activities. I've no intention  to make it easy for them.

Cheers!
