Thanks, split tunneling worked, though I guess that exposes me through that website, is that correct?
To be honest, as with almost any technology, split tunneling comes with a few inherent risks, most of which can be mitigated. The most common risk is a DNS leak. A DNS leak happens when you unintentionally expose the details of your traffic to bad actors. A full tunnel VPN deployment encrypts everything, while split tunneling encrypts only a portion. This means there's always a risk, however small, that some traffic that should have been encrypted will remain unsecured.
