What Is a VPN Kill Switch?

A VPN Kill Switch stops your computer from sending or receiving any data as soon as it detects an interruption in your connection. That means a cybercriminal can’t interfere with your connection to steal your data. Think of the Kill Switch like the drawbridge to a castle. The VPN is the castle that keeps your data safe. If any invaders try to enter, we pull up the drawbridge!

Why Do You Need a Kill Switch with Your VPN?

Concerned your data isn’t private online? A Kill Switch keeps others from stealing it.

Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may track your data usage or have to report to the authorities. Advertisers are looking to buy your data to compile marketing profiles, so they can sell you stuff. Worst of all, cybercriminals want to steal your data and even your identity.

CyberGhost VPN keeps your data safe, thanks to the latest security features like the Kill Switch. Our automatic Kill Switch prevents unsecured internet connections if the VPN ever goes down. That ensures your data privacy when you’re reconnected.

You don’t need to fumble through the settings to turn our Kill Switch on. CyberGhost VPN automatically integrates a Kill Switch when you connect to our VPN servers.

Here’s how it works: the Kill Switch constantly monitors your connection to the VPN server. It triggers when it detects the slightest disruption in your connection. The Kill Switch then blocks all internet traffic for 120 seconds until the VPN re-establishes a secure connection. It will immediately alert you that it has halted your internet access. You can then either try to connect to a different server or disable the Kill Switch.

How Does the CyberGhost VPN Kill Switch Work?

6 Reasons Why Your VPN Might Disconnect

Your VPN could disconnect your connection for many reasons. Some common culprits are using a VPN with crowded servers, experiencing an issue with your internet connection, or a problem with your settings. Let’s dive into some common issues.

CyberGhost VPN server location

1. Network and/or Server Failure/Congestion

Many VPNs have a limited server selection, so users have to deal with slow overcrowded servers. Crowded servers can slow down your connection and even disconnect you from the VPN. Thankfully, CyberGhost VPN has 11665+ servers worldwide. That way you won’t have to worry about crowded servers ever again!

2. Unstable Internet Connection / Weak Wi-Fi Signal

Your VPN could cut out because your internet connection is lousy or something’s wrong with your Wi-Fi signal. Try connecting closer to your router or on another device to see if your connection improves.

3. Firewall and/or Router Settings

If the first two suggestions don’t help, take a look at your settings. Have you made any network setting changes lately? If so, your firewall or router may be the reason for your VPN disconnecting. Consider the CyberGhost VPN router app to protect your entire network with VPN security.

4. ISP Interference

Streaming or torrenting uses a lot of data. That’s why ISPs sometimes throttle your connection. Without an encrypted VPN, they can detect your activity and throttle you. CyberGhost VPN uses 256-bit AES encryption to create a secure tunnel for your data. That means your ISP can’t see your activity anymore!

5. Computer Update

Having connection trouble after a computer update? Try restarting your computer to ensure you’ve installed the new software. Your VPN might not support your operating system’s latest version. CyberGhost VPN is regularly updated, and supports all major OS versions. You can contact CyberGhost VPN’s technical support staff if you have a problem.

6. Switch VPN Servers

When you switch VPN servers, some VPNs have trouble disconnecting or establishing a connection with the new server. If all else fails, try switching servers. You may also try changing your VPN protocol, which are the VPN connection guidelines. Luckily, CyberGhost VPN offers you 3 of the best protocols available!

What Are the Risks of Not Using a VPN Kill Switch?

The Kill Switch is so important that we’ve integrated it into CyberGhost VPN as an automatic feature. Why? If your connection to the VPN server is ever interrupted, it allows cybercriminals to steal your data. It also lets your ISP or government snoop on your browsing activity.

The Kill Switch eliminates this vulnerability, so you can browse confidently, with any connection. The Kill Switch is also important because it alerts you if your VPN disconnects. You might not realize until it’s too late without it. Become a Ghostie and never worry about those risks again with our Kill Switch VPN.

No one can afford data leaks online. This data can include anything confidential online, online purchases, P2P downloads, and more. The solution? Use a Kill Switch.

Activists and journalists are especially at risk in many countries. They work to expose injustices in society, which can put them in the government’s crosshairs. Activists and Journalists often use VPNs to stay anonymous online and protect their data from those who wish them harm.

A Kill Switch is an excellent idea for journalists, activists, and even ordinary citizens. A journalist could compromise a source without a Kill Switch. An activist could inadvertently enable the government to track them. You could do the same!
