With the Split Tunnelling feature, you can browse safely on most functioning websites and services, even if you are located in countries with strict internet censorship or government surveillance. 

When your VPN is connected, all your DNS queries, even from applications which are marked to use VPN, will always be routed via VPN network to prevent any DNS leaks. Here’s how you can proceed to activate it.

You lose no access to your local network and devices connected to that network thanks to the feature of Split Tunnelling VPN. You don’t have to worry about anything else when using this feature!
