Internet kill-switch (Windows)

The VirtualShield Windows application includes a new Internet kill-switch option that will block all network traffic if you lose VPN connection.

Internet kill-switch

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 your regular network without your knowledge.

Note: This feature is entirely optional and can be enabled or disabled at any time.
