Apps continue communicating on local network when bitmask VPN is enabled
I use a program which pairs with an app on my phone when they are on the same wifi network, communicating via this. I'm noticing that this continues to work when my Bitmask VPN is enabled (on my laptop).
Is this expected behaviour? I thought all network connections were supposed to be tunneled through the VPN.
(ps: in this case having the app continue to communicate on the local wifi network is actually useful, so long as no other data is leaking!)
