Is it like an antivirus? What kind of protection does it provide in practice?
Hey there, Orchid is similar to other VPN protocols in the sense that it tunnels all your device traffic through Orchid's network.
Depending on the firewall, it may or may not interfere. A firewall could help prevent any malicious apps from trying to bypass the regular network connectivity. We haven't heard any feedback from the community about personal firewalls one way or the other.
