The GOP just legalized your ISP monetizing your Internet habits. And you can be sure that Comcast, Time Warner, etc., will be doing so.
Just to simplify things, your ISP can see every connection between your home and the rest of the world. And if that traffic is un-encrypted, it can see way more than just where the traffic is going to, but what the traffic is.
I’m now shopping for a router that will pipe all of my traffic through a VPN. They’re more user friendly than you’d think, and I’d encourage every human being living in this country to get one and figure it out.
And for those that might ask, “How can we trust the commercial VPN provider to not do the same?” Well, I suppose it’s security turtles all the way down.
