Split Tunneling does exactly what it stands for: split your internet traffic. With a split tunnel, you have the ability to route internet traffic through the VPN network or through your local network.

Split Tunneling VPN is a game-changer because it protects the traffic you want routed through the VPN network without losing any access to your local network and devices. So, for any services that require your VPN IP address, they’ll get it. And for any services that require your ISP’s IP address, you’ll be able to use that too because the traffic will be split between the two. Right now, PureVPN is offers Split tunneling for both Windows and Android devices.
