Well, easiest option would to use VPN service, like PIA - https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ This is the best option, but it's not free - something like $3.3/month on annual plan. Is there a free option? Glad you've asked: You may be asking me - BSA, wait, aren't all https:// sites are already encrypted? Well, yes they are, but before you get to them (even you weren't lazy and typed https://www.address.com/ in your browser - you still must use DNS service to resolve their actual IP address. So let's say you are mr smarty pants and changed default DNS servers (ie: Provided by your dear and beloved ISP) to public ones proved by Google,Level3 OpenDNS or someone else. Ok - you're already in better shape, but keep in mind that DNS requests are NOT encrypted and your noisy ISP still can and will capture this info to be sold to highest bidder(s) But is there another option: Yes, but for now it's kinda a bit techy - the solution to close clear text DNS requests and is called DnsCrypt and you'd be looking for Client (not server) software, like DnsCrypt proxy. Probably easiest one I found is this one: https://simplednscrypt.org/ But there are lots of other options: https://dnscrypt.org/ One of more interesting options to me is the fact DnsCrypt is included in Tomato/AdvancedTomato firmware. It also happens that I now have a spare asus router which is compatible for it. Going to give it a shot. btw: OpenDNS supports DNSCrypt and there is whole bunch of other secure dns providers as well.
