What is the Kill switch feature?

  • Updated

Kill switch is a technology used to prevent data leaks. When a VPN connection is temporarily lost, the Kill switch feature disables your internet access until the VPN connection is restored. In other words, it prevents you from browsing the internet unprotected. Atlas VPN has this feature to guarantee a leak-free experience.


You can turn on the Kill switch feature via Atlas VPN application settings:

    • iOS and Android: Atlas VPN app > Settings > General > Kill switch;

    • macOS: Atlas VPN app > Settings > Kill switch;

    • Windows: Atlas VPN app > Settings > Security > Kill switch.
