The same phenomenon can be applied by any non corporate individual who wants to use a certain browser or an application to send and receive traffic through VPN tunnel while the rest of the traffic is required to travel through the local ISP. In this scenario, only those applications which are selected by the user use VPN connection while the rest dont. This makes it easier for the user to use its applications without swapping between internet and VPN connection again and again.
