Guavi's VPNCheck Pro Review - Need to Keep Your VPN Connected ?
Keep Your VPN Connected When You Need it, Using VPNCheck Pro

Video here


Why I'm using it?

I'm trial testing ZorroVPN and it does NOT comes with a built-in Kill Switch. You'll need to install OpenVPN and set the Kill Switch feature in Windows.....too tedious for me. And you need to use the default Windows Firewall to use with OpenVPN when setting the Kill Switch thus limiting the user from using a 3rd-party firewall

Secondly, some VPNs come with a Kill Switch but it's not effectively working.

Thirdly, sometimes VPN connection can drop midway or if you need to change server frequently.

In comes VPNCheck Pro. It does its job by notifying, with a pop-up message, that the VPN connection has dropped and it cuts off ALL applications that you listed in there from connecting to the net. It supports OpenVPN and some features work if there's OpenVPN only like its MAC address changer etc

When the VPN connection is up your applications can be set to automatically connect to the net again

You can get it here

Ok, I was at a public library a while ago using its public WiFi. Suddenly the WiFi disconnected and FF and Chrome browsers both shut down.

However, I noticed that if I start Chrome/FF in private/incognito mode they'll not reload in private/incognito mode even if you set Applications in VPNCheck Pro to Autorun (i.e. auto reload after VPN shuts down and reloads). The browsers will be reloaded in non-private/incognito mode if you recover them

Now I am connected to a Private Vpn that has a Kill Switch feature and it works fine.
