KillSwitch Apps

Most of the VPN providers offer Kill Switch with their Windows and MacOS apps. The activation is usually one click away.

Linux users can manually setup KilSwitch with OpenVPN. Check this video for more details.

Tip: In order to find out more on how each provider implements KillSwitch you should check their websites.

Torrent VPN

Torrent, BitTorrent or P2P VPN usually refers to those VPN services that allow torrent traffic through their servers.

When downloading torrents the IPs of those involved in the file exchange are visible in the network and can be used to identify the users. By using a VPN service, the IP address is hidden and the traffic is encrypted.

A key feature for torrent friendly VPN services is Kill Switch that makes sure the Internet connection is dropped if an unexpected disconnect to the VPN server occurs.

Kill Switch

Kil Switch is a fail safe mechanism that protects users connected to a VPN server from exposing their real IP address when an unexpected disconnect occurs. This is especially useful for those using a VPN while downloading torrents. If the connection to the VPN drops unexpectedly the user is suddenly exposed with the real IP address.

The most common implementation for kill switch is to cut off the Internet connection completely in case of VPN drop.

Another approach is to close selected apps (like Bittorrent clients) when the VPN disconnects.

Tip: Check the VPN providers that implement KillSwitch.
