WireGuard VPN is different from traditional VPNs, please note the following:
- Unlike traditional VPNs, once you activate your WireGuard VPN tunnel to your company, you don’t turn it off or deactivate it.
- Only traffic that is destined for your company’s network or company’s servers (eg. your company’s File Server) is transferred over the VPN. All other traffic, your regular Internet traffic, will continue to use your normal Internet connection and will not transverse over the VPN. This means you do not receive the security of a VPN when you’re using the Internet in public places (eg. hotels).
