VPN bypass

Duh....  I finally realized that I could bypass URL's that I wanted access while connected to Surfshark.   Gee...I didn't know that!  If I couldn't access something while Surfshark was doing it's thing, I'd just disconnect it.  Usually after that, I'd forget to connect it again.  So how long have I been in the dark about Surfshark?  (we are just talking about Surfshark here and not all the other things I'm still clueless about)  Here's what prompted me to finally check into it.  First, I have to admit on my home PC I don't always have Surfshark enabled. (I now know why)   But lately it has been.  I spend a lot of time on Youtube but the past two days I have not been able to access it.  I thought Youtube was down.  This morning it was still "down" so I checked to see if they reported any outages in my location...there weren't any.  So that's what made me check Surfshark and it's features.  Sure enough, I hadn't added any URL's that I wanted to bypass.  What a maroon.

 I have never used that VPN but I have been using Mullvad for years now and I have zero complaints.

I have no complaints with Surfshark.  The problem I had was I didn't RTFM!  For me, that's par for the course...lol
