That’s a pretty substantial flaw, especially when you consider the sheer popularity of VPNs across the globe. For the uninitiated, VPNs not only make your internet connection more private, they also provide enhanced security overall and, in some circumstances, help deliver better online performance.
Thankfully, the Redmond firm has now released a new Windows 10 update designed to fix the problem in question.
Dubbed KB4554364, the software should ensure a variety of different applications, such as Microsoft Teams, Office 365 and Outlook are still able to connect to the internet, even if you’re using a VPN.
In the changelog for the update, Microsoft explains KB4554364 “updates an issue that might display the wrong internet connection status for certain VPN users or might prevent some applications from connecting to the internet”.
