Internet Service Providers (ISPs)

Protect your privacy from Internet Service Providers (ISPs)

A new bill has just been signed into law in the US, allowing ISPs to sell private browsing information.

This may include:

  • Where you shop and bank
  • Whether you have debt
  • Indications as to your possible health conditions

What you can do to protect your privacy

We recommend you use both a VPN and a private browser – the former creates a secure and private connection between your device and the server, while the latter encrypts the final leg of the journey — namely between the server and the websites you visit. It’s the optimal combination to ensure a great balance between experience and privacy.

  • Prevents ISP from knowing what websites you visit.
  • Includes additional safeguards to ensure that at no point will your private information be visible (anti-DNS leaks and a built-in fail-safe)
