Plex media server and VPN

I have successfully installed Plex on my Mac and windows 10 laptop. Am able to stream content from both but only if IPVanish is off! I am concerned about security and am wondering if my ISP can see what I’m streaming to my Firestick. Any info please. Thanks.

Your ISP can identify the use of a VPN, but not your activity while the VPN is active. Without a VPN the ISP will be able to get data on your streaming activity on the firestick and also internet activity if using a browser App.
You can restrict that info to a minimum by changing some security settings. There is a video from Troypoint somewhere that should direct you through that process.

Thanks for the reply. It is disconcerting that my ISP can see what I do on my firestick. I will look for the video you mentioned. Thanks again.
