What is Split Tunneling in FastVPN for Windows?

VPN split tunneling is an advanced feature of virtual private network software, designed to help you manage and control your VPN traffic more efficiently. This guide explains how split tunneling works.

Split tunneling in FastVPN allows you to determine which connected apps, games, and services use a secured connection through FastVPN, and which ones can use a regular connection through your internet service provider. This flexibility allows you to enhance security for sensitive activities like remote work or banking, while still enjoying faster speeds and local services for other tasks like playing online games or streaming readily available content.
