When the user connects to the VPN server, it creates a secure encrypted tunnel which then passes to the greater internet. By default any and all split tunneling traffic sent through the VPN network goes through the VPN split tunneling server in an encrypted manner.
However, with split tunneling, you have the option to choose which traffic/information goes through the VPN network (encrypted tunnel) and the rest through your ISP (not encrypted tunnel). The option to route your traffic through the VPN connection/split tunneling or your ISP is a blessing especially when you don’t want to access certain websites without any encryption.
The true advantage to use Split Tunneling is that it derives from its convenience. The feature helps improve your work efficiency. Let’s say you’re traveling abroad, for accessing the country’s local content; you can route the traffic through the internet and for accessing your home country’s content, you can route the traffic through the VPN network by enabling Split Tunneling feature.
Split Tunneling is a robust feature that provides convenience to your internet activities. There are so many risks associated with split tunneling. However, when split tunneling is enabled, users bypass PureVPN’s AES 256-bit military-grade encryption that’s there to secure your online activities against hackers, cybercriminals and prying eyes.
If you set up VPN split tunneling to exclude certain traffic from the protection of your VPN connection or VPN tunnel, your internet service provider or a third party could access that traffic. To protect your online activities, use only VPN-protected split tunneling connections to protect your internet traffic and to protect your IP address when you handle sensitive data, access restricted websites or P2P with Kill switch protection. Now by using web services from local IP addresses. You can easily download safely without slowing down your other.
With split tunneling in place, your internet connection reduces any jams and conserves bandwidth as the internet traffic does not have to pass through the VPN split tunneling network. But the good thing to use Split Tunneling with PureVPN is that you’ve got unlimited bandwidth to protect your IP address and internet traffic.
Another advantage to use split tunneling is when a user is working on various sites with different functions on both networks throughout the day, split tunneling prevents the user from having to repeatedly connect and disconnect.
