KIllswitch & auto server switching

Post by starkness42 » Thu Sep 26, 2019 5:26 pm

In my short term experience using OpenVPN, what drives me away from it is the absence of a killswitch feature which disconnects you from the internet entirely whenever you lose connection to a VPN server. When using OpenVPN, my connection often dies without warning, leaving my browsing unencrypted (How does anybody cope with that?).

In addition to a killswitch, I believe the app also needs the capability to automatically detect the currently fastest server for a given VPN service and connect to it accordingly.

Thank you.

It's true that these functions could help! I've recently started using OpenVPN and am entirely satisfied, but this would actually make it even better.
