    Can all apps do fingerprinting or just browsers?

    Recently I found out that Google Apps was reading my actual ISP IP address instead of my VPN router's IP address. privacy.resistFingerprinting on Firefox put a stop to that but Gitlab (Cloudflare) required it to be enabled.

    Port selection for speed

    RapidVPN has these options for TCP/UDP OpenVPN config files: 443, 11940, 1198, 10090, 10190, 24500, 42320, 62520 UDP should be faster but interestingly with StarVPN I notice TCP has faster uploads. Will any of these ports have better performance or does it not matter

    Looking to use Wireguard and wifi bridge. Router options?

    My Asus AC86u is good and dependable but I'm looking for Wireguard to help raise VPN speeds, and WIFI bridge to use WIFI as a source when I'm traveling (AirBnbs, so no check in page). What router would you guys recommend that has these two features preferably out of the box?

    AsusWRT, allowing single applications to bypass VPN client?

    Hi, I have my current AsusWRT configuration (on an RT-AS86u router) set to route all traffic through a VPN service using an OpenVPN client.
