Ordinarily, when you go online, your internet service provider (ISP) provides your connection. It keeps track of you via an IP address. Your web traffic passes through your ISP’s servers — they can log and see everything you do online.

Your ISP may seem trustworthy, but they could be handing your browsing history over to advertisers, the police or government, and other third-parties. Your ISP is also open to breaches: if they get hacked, your personal and private data could be compromised.

This is especially worth considering if you regularly connect to public Wi-Fi networks. You never know who could be watching your internet traffic from the other side and potentially stealing from you — passwords, personal data, payment information, and even your whole identity.
