We’re happy to announce that we’ve released a new major ZoogVPN app update v5.2 with introduction of a Kill Switch feature for Windows. To download new version go to VPN for Windows page.
What is a VPN Kill Switch?
While we believe that our VPN service is among the fastest and most reliable services on the market, a VPN in general is not 100% failproof. The VPN connection like any other network related connectivity occasionally has it’s dropouts and this can be of serious concern for privacy.
A dropped VPN connection can leave your real IP address leaked and exposed to the outside world. In most cases users are rarely aware of these dropouts since a good VPN will automatically reconnect. However, for the very short period of time when it is not connected your real IP is exposed and is potentially visible to a 3rd party.
