What is Split Tunneling?

And why do you need it?

How does it work?

Sometimes you’re accessing a restricted website through a VPN server but need to download a file via your local internet provider. You can’t disconnect the VPN, but you need the open network to download the file. What should you do in this case?

While it’s true you can do one task at a time, why go through the trouble of doing that? Split tunneling allows you to divide your internet connection into two: an encrypted VPN connection and a direct internet connection.

It allows you to send your internet traffic through a secured VPN “tunnel” and sends the rest through an open network tunnel. Think of it as a large highway that breaks off into two separate routes: one through the forest and one in the open road. In the end, they both reach the same destination.

Why do I need it?

To get the best out of any VPN, you need to be confident that you’re getting paramount experience. With the option of gaining access to foreign servers and maintaining a connection with a local network, it’ll help you save plenty of bandwidth for your online activity.

You can never go wrong with more features especially if it eases usability, increases productivity, and maintains your safety and identity.

What are the benefits of Split tunnel?

  1. Loosen bandwidth constraints when connecting to a VPN server.
  2. Saves you time by keeping two networks open for multitasking.
  3. Keep two different networks functioning simultaneously without having to connect and disconnect the VPN.
  4. Stream media while going through local searches on your browser.
  5. Download files and content without sacrificing the speed of your browsing.
  6. Gain access to local devices like printers and routers while still being anonymous.
