My question is this:
I use a pay service called Private Internet Access and they claim to a) not log where you go on the internet and b) that when using their service your ISP (in my case AT&T Uverse internet) has no way of knowing what you are doing on the internet. That doesn't make any sense to me, because you would think that even when using the private service that your ISP would see where you go and what you do, and only the website on the other end of the connection would be fooled. Am I right? Is using a VPN as secure as using a service like TOR? And are they telling the truth about never logging?
I ask these questions because I am concerned about my privacy, and if my ISP can see where I go and what I download then I feel like I would be wasting money on this private service. Any information would be appreciated, especially on how internet connections and proxies work.
