Obviously Akeeba Admin Tool for Joomla is a great product. I can't imagine Joomla website without it. Technology is fast improving, and internet is so fast with VPN. So now a days most of the people use VPN for browsing security. The main problems with visitors from VPN traffic are:-
1, Less ad revenue for website owners. relevant ads won't display according to the location
2, Some Adnetwork won't display ads if the traffic is from unknown network.

I wish Akeeba Admintool has a feature to block all traffic from VPN network and detecting & warning any adblocking extension in browser

Without using different extension for all these, all features come together in Admintool

Thank you

what you're looking for is partially doable.
First of all the AdBlock: I'm sorry but that's out of scope for our plugin. We're currently on a arms race between AdBlocks and AdBlocks detector, we're just not interested in joining that war detween detectors.

Regarding the VPN: it depends. What you can do, is to fetch a list of VPN addresses, import them inside Admin Tools Site IP blacklist. In this way Admin Tools will block the access from those locations. However you should keep in mind that VPN IPs change quite often and adding thousands of IPs in the blacklist will end up slowing your site.
