Although a simple concept, VPNs protect you on multiple levels. “During this week we’ve experienced a 25 percent surge of Private Tunnel app downloads due to the overturning of FCC rules, which signals how important privacy and security are to people,” says Dinha. By using a VPN across all your devices, ISPs can see that you’re sending and receiving data, but only to the point of the VPN. They also can’t see what data you’re sending because it’s encrypted before being sent from your device to the ISP. It’s like upgrading your magnetic strip to a chipped card or digital wallet.
