It seems that Adguard starts it's VPN even when another VPN is in use.

Wouldn't it better to prompt to convert to #51, whenever that lands?

That's just a bit different issue.

You see, AG is too "aggressive" now, starts its VPN even when some other vpn app is in use, hence stopping that vpn.

This is true, but user may not be aware that AG will may have capability to run both simultaneously at that point (milestone v2.6) if 1 is proxyable, right?

to run both simultaneously at that point

This is possible only with root and in proxy+automatic mode.

You just can't have two different VPNs on Android and we can't help it. #51 issue won't change it. However, at least user will be able to use an outbound proxy. For instance, PIA provides proxy along with a VPN.

But how can we start our VPN without permission? When user gives one app permission to start VPN the VPN permission is revoked from other VPN apps.

@Revertron both apps already have permission.
