Many web sites do not allow access from known VPN IP addresses. They do this for copyright, legal, security, and political reasons. There is nothing a VPN provider can or should do to circumvent these legal protections. See this How to Geeks article. https://www.howtogeek.com/403771/why-do-some-websites-block-vpns/
Having said that, is he using the VPN feature in Norton 360 iOS, or the standalone Norton Secure VPN? With either product you can disable the VPN from within the app. Be sure he is not trying to control the VPN from the iOS Settings.
