How to enable VPN only for Spotify?

Post by SamLearnsLinux » Thu Feb 14, 2019 1:20 am

Linux Mint 19 XFCE user here. I'm outside of USA and need to use spotify using a VPN. I am okay with using the web version or the desktop app of Spotify or a third party spotify app.

But I want to know a way such that the VPN is enabled only for Spotify and is enabled automatically when I start Spotify. Is there a way to do this?

change your dns to https://1.1.1.1/ if you don't mind using the browser page spotify. you can also use browsec or zenmate or other vpn extensions

How and where do I change the DNS? And what are downsides?

ipv4

Code: Select all

1.1.1.1,1.0.0.1
ipv6

Code: Select all

2606:4700:4700::1111,2606:4700:4700::1001

one downside is that your ISP will not know what you search on the internet anymore. another side effect is that your internet will be faster. the only bad thing is it may not work for some countries
