A regular Client behind the ISP Router accesses the Internet through the unprotected red path.
The ISP can log the traffic from this client.
The router establishes the blue IPredator connection.
The Client behind the IPredator VPN uses the yellow protected path through IPredator to access the Internet.
Because the traffic inside the blue tunnel is encrypted, your ISP cannot look into the traffic that the Client behind IPredator generates.
The ISP only sees encrypted packets traveling back and forth to IPredator.
