    I use expressvpn. Have for some time. Use it on my galaxy s8plus, along with other devices. When I upgraded to the s20 a problem arose after installing 3xpressvpn onto device. I can no longer use network auto connect feature on VPN without enabling the location setting on my s20. This seems really dumb for something that is all about privacy (vpn).

    I asked about this else where didn't get much help. Someone it has something to do with libraries and location in settings on Android 10 devices.

    Is there a way i can enable auto connect on my s20 using expressvpn and not have location on?

    Here's a picture I get when opening the app if location is off on my phone.

    Interesting. As that is a Expressvpn message, controlled via their app, I think you would have to check with their support. As Android versions evolve, the way permissions are handled change as well, some dev's are not quick to update.

    I have heard that Express VPN is not very secure anyway.

    Personally, I use Windscribe.
    I never have my location on.

    I have no idea what that feature is.
    I use a firewall most of the time, so if I use a VPN I have to switch over manually anyway.

    (Because the firewall uses the Android VPN api)
