These days, internet connection are pretty stable, but from now and then a loss of signal, power outage or other unforeseen events might happen, leaving your connection unprotected for a few moment. To make sure that you’re not exposed, we strongly recommend using Vuze Bittorrent Client for all your torrenting activity.
Vuze is the only torrent client that has the option to only be active while the VPN connection is online aka as a kill switch.
After the settings are set, you’re ready to go! Make sure to test if its working properly by killing the VPN connection and check if the torrent is stopped.
