What is a VPN Kill Switch?

This is my first post here. Recently, My friends and I went through this horrible time period where a guy from our workplace hack our wifi and ultimately hack into our conversations and credentials. After this dilemma, I am very much curious about my wifi security whether I am inside or outside. The problem is that with my increased daily workload I can't research the solutions. All I want is a basic checklist to check every time and it would be more good If I can have a solution as a product. Which can secure my connection if the connection drops once and for all whether I am at home or not? Do you guys have any idea about this? and any technology which offers a VPN Kill Switch?

From Nord: "The VPN Kill Switch continuously monitors your connection to the VPN server. If the connection accidentally drops, the Kill Switch blocks your device (or the apps you have specified) from accessing the web."

Private Internet Access (PIA) is a VPN provider that has a killswitch built-in. I would think most VPN's would include this. Maybe check to see if the settings for your VPN has this listed.

I use VyprVPN on my devices and it seems to work well. It has a kill-Switch option. Honestly, I think that any commercially available VPN should work for you.

Re: What is a VPN Kill Switch?

I have had such a bad experience with PureVPN that I dropped them last month. They just could not keep online for more than 10minutes at a time. I also needed to change servers on a daily basis. I don’t know about any kill switch, but as far as reliability they are terrible!

I now use ExpressVPN and they are solid as a rock.
