When using a VPN, your computer traffic is routed and encrypted through a remote server. If you would like to come here, to this website and download a free game. Your browser will send the encrypted request through the VPN server. The VPN server will forward your browser’s request to this website and all the content from this website will be sent to the VPN server which will send it back to your browser.
What your ISP will see is only that you have established a secure and encrypted connection with a single remote server.
- Your ISP logs when you use a VPN service.
- Your ISP logs what is your IP each time you use the internet
- Your ISP logs the time and date each time you use the internet
- Your ISP logs you have contacted an IP address (VPN server IP)
- Your ISP CANNOT log any file download nor its origin as it is encrypted.
- Your ISP CANNOT log any request from remote server by any app (like Kodi and Popcorn Time)
- Your ISP logs all the remote servers you have connected to but CANNOT tell what is the data you have downloaded from them.
- In short, your ISP knows ALMOST NOTHING you do online
What VPN do you use?
I use Hola VPN to hide all of my online activity and I’m very happy with it. It is so very easy to use and it was the fastest and most reliable VPN service I have found.
Hola VPN offers various VPN client apps for various platforms and a single license is very cheap (especially comparing to anti-piracy fines), even cheaper than computer games.
I mostly use the browser extension of the VPN when I use the browser as it keeps the other connections faster (like email clients). If I want to download games or movies , I use the VPN client app for Windows. This is how I fully protect myself with a great service for a very cheap price. Since it supports using up to 10 devices per license, I use it on 3 computers, 2 phones and a tablet. All for one price.
You can use any VPN service you want, just avoid the free ones as they are not really protecting you.
If you’re not sure about which VPN to use, just click the link below and use the same protection I use and have your peace of mind just like me.
