ADVANTAGES

Throughout the course of using the internet, your computer sends and receives a lot of data that isn’t visible to you, the user. When you type in a web address, a request is sent to a server that is usually operated by your ISP. When you connect to the internet using a VPN, this responsibility is now on them. If they don’t take certain actions, this request containing info for the site your want to visit is being sent to THEIR ISP instead. This may not be as bad as it going through yours, but as I mentioned logging above – if the company in question even keeps certain logs, there is a chance that the sites you try to visit can be correlated with the timestamps of when such a request is sent. As an alternative, some use public DNS servers, such as google’s, which is not ideal for privacy. Choose a VPN service that maintains their own first party DNS server that won’t leak – then TO MAKE SURE.
