Hi bob3160 :)
 I do not have anything relating to a kill switch.
Me neither, Bob's screenshot is from a Mac.

Thanks Asyn




Sorry bob3160        I didn't realize your screenshot was from a Mac :-[
Don't feel bad, I didn't either. The screenshot came from the developers forum.
I'll let them know that a fix or option on a Mac isn't going to do us Windows users much good. :)

And we need the .ovpn files to use a different OpenVPN client.

I agree.

And Avast should start with testing the WireGuard VPN protocol as well.
Set up (a) test server(s) for public testing.

You can set up a kill switch with in the OS firewall. I have Qbit setup in the firewall to only connect to public network and the avast network adapter set up as public. So if it disconnects the firewall kills the Qbit connection.

That's fine, however the topic is about the 'Avast Secureline' "Kill Switch" which is included in the latest Secureline (beta) version as the screenshot shows.
