VPN split tunneling – called Bypasser on the Surfshark VPN app – is a VPN functionality. It allows users to choose what data will use the VPN connection (with encryption and routing via the VPN server) and which will be transmitted via the usual internet means.
Let’s say you’re using your Windows 10 computer and notice that YouTube is running slow with the VPN. So you select the split tunneling function on your VPN app and add YouTube to the list of addresses that will use split tunneling. Then, you’ll be able to watch YouTube as if you didn’t have a VPN, even though the VPN will still be working and protecting other services.
