    The idea is good, this belongs to active VPN detection, which we probably can do if people care about it.  

    One thing you can do very easily is tap on the top graph (on the main screen) sort by download and usually, you can find VPN connection that way. (either sort the network flows by upload or download)

    Having a feature to detect active VPN connection will be very useful for me. I mainly bought firewall to block gaming and social media websites and with the VPN connections, all firewall rules that I put in are bypassed and it is not doing any good.  

    Thanks

    VPN is fairly tricky since, by nature, it tries to hide. The standard port like 1194 is very useful. And if the port can't be identified, you can examine the network flows, usually, if you sort them by upload or download, they come on the top.
