Since Pie Upgrade, VPN apps don't work

    Since the pie upgrade, my VPN clients stopped working on my Galaxy S9 (NordVPN, ExpressVPN, TurpoVPN). I uninstalled them all and re-installed only one at a time. During the configuration process, I'm shown a dialog box that says:
    "Connection request
    TurboVPN wants to set up a VPN connection that allows it to monitor network traffic. Only accept if you trust the source"
    When I tap on "OK", nothing happens. It doesn't matter what VPN client I use, I get stuck at the same point.

    I've changed the system settings to turn off all apps ability to "Appear on top" but no setting that I change works. Have reset the cache, nothing.

    Welcome any suggestions

    Maybe it was a bad update? Try a factory reset.

    Tried re-installing VPN app several times, tried soft reset, tried hard reset. Nothing worked.

    Just installed NordVPN, accepted the options to allow, and no problems other than super slow MMS and visual voicemail issues.
