    I'm not "an official", but I'm sure VPN is legal. There's no reason why it wouldn't be.

    VPN's are designed to add security for you by encrypting your Internet traffic coming out of your device. They can be beneficial for use in public wifi areas, when somebody could be 'watching', and/or where your access is being blocked by aggressive network firewall programs. (School,Work,College etc)

    I don't use them myself, but if I did, I would use reputable paid VPN's rather than the free ones, which may be free for a reason.
    I don't believe the use of VPN's are against ToS, as why would they be?
    They shouldn't alter the game files, as they are just a security filter in essence.

    I'm note sure about the answers, I just wanted to say that it couldn't be illegal. it could be against the TOS of supercell, but that couldn't be "illegal". I'm pretty sure there is nothing against it in the TOS.

    Either way, bravo!

    We've had this conversation with one forumer that went to China and asked if VPN is against rules.

    One of the moderators came and confirmed that it is not against the rules to use VPN:

    A clan mate of mine has been in China for years as well and always uses a VPN.

    Do keep in mind of why you’d need to use that VPN to get on the game though. We don’t want anyone to break local laws and regulations and get in trouble that way.

    I have used it off and on for 3 years. I'm using it all the time right now because my ISP cuts my Internet off every hour for a few seconds. I recently learned that if I'm on the VPN they don't seem to know I'm online and don't do that to me. :P

    I agree with Skrags, do not use a free one. It's probably okay if you get it via Google Play or the App store. Free ones can't be free without getting something. The something they COULD be getting is your passwords when you send it through their system.

    I recommend StrongVPN. I've used several and it's the most expensive of the ones that I have used. I dropped them but I came back.

    My post is opinion unless I specifically state it's a fact.
