Pre-Cautions To Take Before I Open FreedomE VPN?

Re: Pre-Cautions To Take Before I Open FreedomE VPN?

I have no experience on Windows, but on a Mac leakage of the internal and true external IP happens all the time when Freedome is connecting. Would not use for sensitive stuff.

 

When I start my computer, wake from sleep or if connection needs to be established again it takes a while for the connection to establish. While this is happening all traffic is unprotected. This can be seen by running a simple ping command for example.

 

On iOS this seems to work much better. No traffic seems to flow while VPN connection is being established.

 

Is it better on Windows?

Wow, Tasaista, thanks for your reply! 

 

I've got an iPad, but I've never tried using the FreedomE VPN app on it.

 

What do you think of the iPad version of the FreedomE VPN app?

I'm still searching for an answer to this question.

 

Is it necessary for me to shut down my Internet connected apps like Evernote, Skype and Dropbox before I turn on the Freedome VPN app?

 

Thanks for any help!

 

EDIT:

This has been a problem I've been trying to solve for a long time now so any ideas would be appreciated!

Hello,

 

Maybe not. But the answer should be based on certain meanings or requirements:

 

--> for example, Evernore / Skype / Dropbox are potentially unwanted or untrusted for you?

If so -> maybe possible do not use them at all.

 

--> Or did you mean that - such applications does not reconnected after established VPN connection? and some traffic will be not as part of VPN? Kind of leak something?

 

--> Or, for example, possible that some of this services with strict policy about your IP. And when there will be virtual IP -> may be some security alerts or even more 'blocks'. Or some other potential impact of their terms.

 

Maybe possible to explain potential concern more. Why do you think about this meanings? And what should be as expected result (such as ?! increase something or prevent something?!).

Thanks!
