VPN and Chromecast


Oct 1, 2016
I want to run the Kodi streaming app from my android tablet through my Chromecast without my ISP seeing it. I have Private Internet Access (vpn) on my laptop and android tablet. I've seen the solutions for a VPN enabled router and for setting up a virtual wifi/router and creating a hotspot . I may try one of these solutions but I have a question. Apparently Chromecast has the Google DNS hard-coded into it...it only uses Google DNS addresses and My question is if the Chromecast is only using the Google DNS servers, do I even need to use a VPN with it? Would my ISP see my Chromecast activity despite it not using my ISP's servers? What am I missing? Any help or explanation would be appreciated.
