My residence provides wifi and I'm using my personal computer to connect to it. I use a login and password to have access to the internet. Some websites are blocked by it.
Sometimes I log into VPN (using ANyConnect) to access data on my university's server. When I'm on the VPN, the websites usually blocked aren't.
My question is, can web pages I visit to be tracked when I'm on the VPN or directly connected to the WiFi? How does it work? Do they keep a record of the websites I visit?
