    Recorded IP of Android smartphone.
    Installed but did not run Psiphon SSH+ tunnel on smartphone.
    Used smartphone to wirelessly tether laptop to smartphone.
    Recorded IP of Windows laptop.
    Installed but did not run Psiphon SSH+ tunnel on laptop.
    Ran SSH+ tunnel on smartphone, noticed a different IP displayed on it.
    Noticed laptop IP did not change at that time.
    Ran SSH+ tunnel on laptop, noticed a different IP displayed on it.

    Is the laptop IP supposed to work independently of the smartphone
    tethering? I'm not sure why I had to install a separate SSH+ tunnel on
    the laptop to get SSH+ benefits.

    I need to use encrypted traffic to prevent ISP browser sniffing.

    SSH+ is a more secured variant of SSH tunneling. SSH encrypts traffic
    like VPN except it usually only encrypts HTTP/HTTPS/SOCKS traffic. SSH
    tunneling is often much faster than VPN.
