    That's the point of a high quality paid service. It encrypts all communication from and to your device to the VPN Service's servers. It then goes out from there , stripped of all identifying info.

    With a VPN, the user is just kicking the can down the road. Rather than your ISP or your hotel or the public wifi hotspot seeing all the sites you visit, you are now giving that information to the VPN provider.

    That is why it is important to find a service that claims to keep no logs, allows for anonymous payment options, and requires as little signup info as possible.

    If want to go a step beyond VPN, then try Tor. The first benefit is that it's free. The second is that it keeps you anonymous so that not even the servers handling your requests know what your are browsing.

    On android, use Orbot to provide a system level Tor connection for everything, and the Tor Browser if you only want to conceal your internet habits.

    The benefit of a VPN is the ability to choose a server in another country. While you can do this with Orbot, it still hops servers and may not stay in that country for long. It's best to just leave it set to Global.

    I've been using tor for a while. I decided to let my subscription to TorGuard expire after using it for a couple years. They are good but why pay for something when you can get it for free?

    With Orbot you can add any app that uses your data. You also have the ability surf the DW through Orfox. Really nice.

    Torguard has nothing to do with Tor or the Tor project, just to clarify. Torguard is VPN only and doesn't use the Tor network.

    "Answer: No, The reference to "tor" in TorGuard relates to "torrents" and guarding one’s privacy when using bitorrent. We are not related in any way to the “tor” project however the company does support through donations. "
