    Don't Panic.

    Check with your ISP to find out what their privacy policy is and whether they have an opt-out plan for personal and browsing data. If they have an opt-out plan, then take that and you'd just don't have to worry about it.

    If they don't have an opt-out plan, or if their privacy plan says something like "we may share your browsing history with our marketing partners," then you have to decide whether this really is an issue. And now, you can decide whether you need a VPN or to use some other method to preserve your privacy.

    And for a recommendation, I'm personally using PureVPN for MAC and it has been 2 years since I got it. Works fine for me, has all the required features of which internet kill switch, split tunneling and DNS leak protection are of most use for me. I also love their chrome app, blocks all the useless ads and malware coming through the browser.

    Well harryb i am aware of the fact that facebook along with google already shares and keep all our browsing activity and our queries that we do, so that they can sell us the right product. Also have you heard about Prism is a program to monitor our activity backed by NSA, Google and likes of other tech giants so we are not safe thats for sure. But as long as they keep our activity only to sell us right dresses and sandles i have no issues but if they are even reading conversations and keeping track of checkins, GPS tag and all like happening in Australia for Meta Data than i think using mac vpn would be very ok.

    @IanWright no we are not panicking, i am just wondering are we really tax paying citizen, and right companies can do whatever they like and government doesn't take anyone's consideration.
