OS X Kill switch finally implemented?

To renew my license I noticed that there's now a kill switch function in OSX app. How does it work?

 

Nowhere on this site it is mentioned or documented. It would be great that there would be a way of learning about significant new features. Lack of kill switch was the primary reason why I studied competing products. It does seem to work in a quick test but it is disabled for default. Maybe there's a reason?

    Hi tasaista,

     

    Please have a look at our KB article here for more information regarding the Killswitch.

  • Thank you for pointing that article out.

     

    However, it does not mention anything about local network. How does that work?

     

    While vpn connection is active:

    - killswitch toggle on: access to local network is blocked

    - killswitch toggle off: access to local network works

     

    Same subnet, access using ip address.

     

    I would expect that I can access my local network as before at least when the vpn connection is active.
