If I’m currently on a website and disable my VPN, is my ISP or the web server immediately aware of the change or does a page refresh have to occur?


For example: I’m browsing my favorite website with my favorite VPN enabled. I disable my VPN while I’m still on a page of the website. I haven’t clicked any links yet, I haven’t went back to the previous page, I’m just on the page, touching nothing. At this point, are the web server and ISP now aware of this change? Or does a page refresh / new request have to occur?

If I had to guess, it would be no, because it would be theoretically the same thing as viewing the webpage and disconnecting your internet completely. Am I on the right track?
