Windscribe Firewall is built into our Windows, Mac and Linux applications. It blocks all connectivity outside of the tunnel to ensure there is zero chance of any kind of leak, including but not limited to DNS leaks, IPv6 leaks, WebRTC leaks, etc.
On mobile platforms like Android and iOS, there is similar "Always ON VPN" functionality that has the same effect, and is built directly into the OS.
A firewall is a superior solution to a "kill switch". The "kill switch" is a snake oil feature and offers absolutely zero protection because it's a reactive measure. Between your VPN disconnecting and the program detecting that it did, packets can leave your computer over the default gateway (your ISP). A firewall blocks ALL connectivity outside of the tunnel. If the VPN connection drops, there is nothing that needs to be done, and not a single packet can leave the machine, since the firewall will not allow it. In geek terms it fails closed.
