FrootVPN introduces “Kill Switch”

The VPN (Virtual Private Network) provider FrootVPN is beta-testing the Windows client for a tool they call “Kill Switch”. Essentially, whenever the VPN connection drops, there is a moment in time where the public IP address, not hidden through VPN, can be seen. As soon as the VPN reconnects, that’s no longer a problem.

What FrootVPN’s kill switch tool does is to kill the Internet connection as soon as the VPN disconnects. This can protect you from having your normal IP address exposed.

Windows users can click here to try it out (requires a FrootVPN account).

FrootVPN itself is available for OS X, Windows, Linux and Android and iOS.
