Mac OS - Block internet access when VPN not connected

Tommy600 Posts: 18 Explorer



Does anyone know if it's possible to block internet access totally when the VPN is not enabled on Mac OS?


The issue is that, if the mac goes to sleep, you log back on, the VPN has disconnected and takes a while to connect. Sometimes you can forget and start browsing outside the VPN.


I wanted a way to restrict access so that the mac can only connect to the internet via the VPN, like on iOS. If the VPN is not connected, you can't access the internet.


Please help if you can.

    If I've understood it correctly, this kind of a kill-switch feature has been hard to implement on Mac, or requires some sort of hacking as the software need to be able to block all communications from the device.


    Just saying, hopefully someone can tell how it is nowadays.
