A VPN stands for “virtual private network.” It’s a digital tool that redirects your internet traffic through a secure tunnel, hiding your IP address and encrypting your data in the process. It’s how a VPN keeps your data private and protects you from potential cyberattacks.
How does it work? When you connect to a VPN service, it authenticates your client with a VPN server and applies an encryption protocol to all your internet data. The VPN service then creates an encrypted “tunnel” over the internet. That secures the data traveling between you and your destination.

If your connection drops, Kill Switch will disable the internet to protect your private data.
