Connection Error due to VPN created by Companion App

I am the child in this scenario, but I was trying to download a file from Google Drive after my father put the Companion app on my phone. It would not download and said connection error. I tried on my sister's phone, which has the app and it did the same thing. Tried on both my parents phone and it downloaded fine. Me and my dad went through the restrictions placed kn my phone and saw nothing restricting Google Drive downloading. OneDrive from Microsoft did the same thing. Is there a way that the VPN set up by the app could send an invalid argument to the Google servers which caused it to reject the request?

P.S. Please don't say anything about being the child. I saw the reviews from Google play from the parents and I did not come here to get attacked.
