Sorry in advance if this is dumb, I'm pretty much a luddite but I was able to download Graphene to my Pixel 7 today.
I connected to my mobile network, wifi, and then was able to download Proton VPN which I'd previously used on the Pixel.
Through Aurora Store, I downloaded my usual apps, including email, google maps and uber. However, I realized I had to turn off my VPN so the last two could get my location when in use. That's when I discovered, the apps completely lost connection when I disconnected the VPN. Not just maps, but everything, including Aurora Store, stops working when I disconnect my VPN. It doesn't even work when I'm only connected to my mobile network.
What have I done (or not done? Is there a setting I need to change)? Any insight would be appreciated. I'd love to start enjoying Graphene, but for this geezer it's just been stressful so far.
