VPN disconnects without warning which could leak sensitive info

I have a VPN setup through the network settings in Fedora 25 and sometimes I will glance up and notice that the VPN is no longer disconnected. This could cause a serious security issue. Is there any way to block all internet traffic unless I am connected to a VPN? Either that or there needs to be a pop up window that displays in the center of the screen explaining that the VPN has disconnected.

The first thing I would do is run the vpn application through terminal to get more debug output and possibly figure out why the connection is dropping. Are you on WiFi? Some applications will allow you to select a network interface to use specifically. This way, you can force your app to tun0 for example, and it will use no other.

Striker: Well it is not a separate VPN application, it is a VPN configured through the settings app in Fedora.
