Hi, Welcome to just answers, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
If you are on split tunnel the internet browsing is hidden from the VPN server. So, in split tunneling the internet browsing cannot be tracked. You cannot tell whether it is a split tunneling by looking at the IP address.If you can browse internet without being connected to VPN then it means that the VPN does not interfere with internet browsing. But if VPN is must for internet browsing then there is every possibility that VPN is tracking your browsing information.
There is one possible way by which you can guess whether your browsing information is tracked or not. If there are any blocked sites by the proxy then this method might work for you. If you can open the blocked the sites when you are connected to VPN then it is possible that VPN is not tracking any information but if you are unable to open the blocked sites when you are connected to the VPN then it is confirmed that the VPN is tracking your browsing information.
let me read your answer thanks
i do not have a blocked site
no site is blocked
so i can not tell using that method
No that method will not work for you, Facebook isnt blocked?
when i am working at my work computer at work
when it is connected lan and when wifi is turned off i believe youtube and facebook is blocked but when i turn on wifi it is no longer blocked
but i dont think that has anything to do with vpn
Hmm well if they dont block website that are a potential threat then I wouldnt be worrried about them being concerened about your internet browsing..:)
so i just need to figure out if it is split tunneling if it is then they wouldnt be able to see anything
i want to be sure hm...
A lot of companies dont allow split tunneling because it is less secure but if they dont block any websites then they might not care
tell me if this is another way.. when i go to whatismyip.com it shows my ip
when i connect to vpn it still says my ip
does that mean it is split?
Then that shows that traffice is going thru your isp and not thru your vpn
Yes that shows you that it is split
yea both ip says the same when connect or not connected
Cool then they are using split tunneling
They prob dont have the bandwidth to support non split
yea we are not that big in size
That would explain it then.
so if they dont block facebook they probably dont care?
is there another way to tell you can think of?
using the www.whatismyip.com is the easiest way to tell
ok sounds good
Your welcome, Have a good day and Thanks for iusing Justanswer!
