Internet kill-switch (Windows)
The VirtualShield Windows application includes a new kill-switch option that will block all network traffic if you lose VPN connection.
In case the VPN unexpectedly disconnects, kill-switch stops your computer from accessing the internet. Once you are re-connected to the VPN server location, your internet traffic will be restored automatically.
This helps protect your system by preventing any data from leaking across the network without your knowledge.
Note: This feature is entirely optional and can be enabled or disabled at any time.
Open the VirtualShield Windows application.
Open the Settings panel by clicking the Cog/Gear shaped icon near the top-right of the app.
Inside the General Settings panel, select the Internet kill-switch option.
Click the Save button to save your settings.
