That's how I discovered my new employer is annoyingly good at security.

The work laptop is of course years newer than my home beater.* Nicer display and *much* better speakers. For my lunch break I disconnected the VPN so I could watch some Netflix.

It kept trying to reconnect the VPN. I confirmed I can work offline if I disable the WiFi, but if there's a net connection it forces VPN.

* As long as employers keep issuing me hardware I find it hard to justify the expense to replace something that's still good enough for web browsing and photo processing.
