What is a Kill Switch?

A Kill Switch is a safety mechanism which will block all Internet traffic when your FastVPN stops working.

It is a useful feature especially if you want to increase your privacy and anonymity. A Kill Switch turns off your Internet if the VPN is not protecting you. So, your privacy will stay secure even if the connection to FastVPN is not working.

We currently support Kill Switch on our Windows app. You can easily enable or disable Kill Switch by following the instructions below:

1. Open the expanded view by clicking the top left arrow:

2. Go to Settings > General and toggle the Kill Switch button to the position on or off:

If you are having any trouble connecting to the Internet, please double-check that the Kill Switch is not enabled.
