It is one of the foundations of the internet which is why you must do your best to protect your DNS. DNS leak protection prevents your DNS from being discovered by others while you’re using a VPN.
  • Kill Switch — A kill switch is basically an automatic protection method that masks users of the VPN from outsiders just in case they get suddenly disconnected from the VPN. In essence, it allows VPN users to stay behind an extra layer of protection.
