Split tunneling allows you to direct internet traffic through the secure OVPN connection while letting other traffic use the regular internet connection for improved functionality and flexibility.
Split tunneling is currently available on x64 versions of Windows 10/11, on version 2.5.0 and later of the desktop client.

That's it! Simply reconnect to OVPN to exclude the selected applications.
