Running Orbot on galaxy tab e Android version 6.0.1.

I was running Orbot through a vpn and using fire.onion and it used to work but now usually it will say not connected to tor when I check it at And sometimes it will be sending and receiving but usually everything is at 0. So I downloaded Orfox and tried running Orbot, and it says connected to Tor when I check it, although it still isn't showing much sending or receiving activity. And in the first few minutes that I check if I'm connected at, it always shows my original IP address despite saying I'm connected and despite when I look up my ip address elsewhere i see the ip address of my vpn.

Yesterday when I was looking at the Orbot app, the onion icon was flipping on and off on its own and it kept doing this. Also Orbot started up by itself this morning. So I unselected allow background starts, although it should not be doing this even with it selected bc I dont run other apps through it (other than fire.onion and orfox), and I had choose for it to run for all apps at start-up. My email address is lilypatterson47@… if you have any questions or answers. Thanks
