Does your AIRVPN comes with a dedicated Kill Switch for HUAWEI EMUI don't support android's default Kill Switch?

Some VPNs come with a dedicated 'Kill Switch' but, in fact, it relies on android's default Kill Switch

If you got some link/s that explains that I would love read about it. Now I only found information about Androids default Kill Switch that makes me confused as it points to Factory reset, and that's not the same as a genuine VPN Kill Switch.

I have a plan to make an extensive test using a number of VPNs on Android to check whether their Kill Switch is working properly including CyberghostVPN, VyprVPN, and VPN.ac. I'll share my findings as soon as I finished those tests.

I am looking for the effectiveness of those VPNs comes with a dedicated 'Kill Switch'. Android VPNs are useless without an effective 'Kill Switch'.

Android default Kill Switch enabling is explained here


It's supposed to be better than those built-in Kill Switch in the VPN app. If there's some issue with the VPN app (like a crash/hang-up) then the built-in Kill Switch might not protect you as opposed to the default android Kill Switch.

If you look carefully many android VPNs are making use of the default android VPN settings

I think CyberGhost has a dedicated Kill Switch. VyprVPN as well


VPN.ac uses the default android VPN Kill Switch

I just signed up for VyprVPN which comes with a dedicated Kill Switch. The Kill Switch works.

Read my review in post #17 below

Hello, good config, I see you use also reliable data backup methods such as Dropbox, but pay attention when you install apps from unknown sources.

Thanks for sharing.
Yeah, i like Dropbox for the Fact that it's the only Cloud-Provider which has incremental Sync, so it syncs only the Changes made to Files and not the whole File.
Since most of my Stuff is encrypted in big VeraCrypt-Containers, this Feature is a Life Saver.

Some of my Apps aren't in the App-Store, like AdGuard, XDA-Labs and YouTube Vanced, so i install them manually.
I am aware of the Risk of Apps from unknown Sources, but in this Case the Sources are known.
