Yes, your ISP can see that you are using a VPN if they want you to. This is due to the way a VPN works: when you go online without a VPN, you are connecting directly from your computer to your ISP's system, which in turn connects to the site you want to visit.

When you connect via a VPN, your ISP first connects you to the VPN server and then to the website. This way, every site “sees” that you are using the VPN server’s IP address. However, note that without the incognito feature, they can easily find you.

What does my ISP see?

VPNs differ from proxies in that they encrypt your connection through what is called a secure tunnel. This encrypts your computer's connection to the VPN server, usually using an advanced encryption method such as AES-256, which, in theory, could only be broken by someone in a few million years.

This way, the site you visit only sees your fake IP address (VPN IP), but it works the other way around. When the ISP looks at the connection you've made and asks where it's going, all it gets is random and useless information. It can see that you are making a connection, it can even understand the IP address you are connecting to, but not much else (i.e. the places you visit).

What about ISPs that sell data?

Of course, there are also ISPs that don't really like customers using VPNs. These are companies based in countries where it is legal to track and sell user data, such as the United States. While there's no evidence for this, we can assume that ISPs won't be very happy with VPN users as it means there's a lot less information on offer.

However, since using a VPN is legal in the US, there is no way to enforce the law governing how users use their internet connection.
