Avast SecureLine VPN "internet kill switch’"
« on: October 02, 2017, 07:57:09 PM »
Hi,

Does Avast SecureLine VPN offer a "auto internet kill switch", in case the VPN connection drops?
Or is it a way to configure that?
Thanks

It is the only feature missing... Other than that - Great Service! Seriously, is that so difficult to implement?

For those that may not know this, HMA is actually owned by Avast. (I'm currently using HMA)
I don't know why it should be so difficult to add that feature to SecureLine ???

SecureLine really needs a lot of improvements...
We need this Kill Switch, improve the protection against IPv6 and DNS leak, a application guard and the possibility to change between TCP and UDP. Is weird to be stuck in "UDP only".
And we need the .ovpn files to use a different OpenVPN client.
