This day and age, it is very important to have a VPN. As it stands, your ISP can see everything you are doing, and they log it for six months or more. This information is there, waiting to be sold, subpoenaed, etc. So, you really need that VPN.
First, a VPN allows you to browse the internet privately. It creates an encrypted tunnel to a different server, then you browse the internet from there. So, you use their client (or openVPN) and connect to their server. Your ISP (and other prying eyes) just see a raw stream of data. They don’t know if you are browsing Reddit, watching YouTube videos, or shopping for snakeskin jackets. They have no clue.
