I have recently bought a VPN Service membership and I have read about the basic things of how it works, but still have some specific questions on how to use it properly.
Do I need to close my browser and "cut off" the connection before I connect to the VPN? Whats with being logged in to email accounts and things like that while establishing the secure connection?
The same with torrents. I have read that when you first start to download a torrent and only then activate the VPN, it doesn't help in any way since your previous IP and the new one then can easily be matched.
I hope that someone can find the time to give me some insight and I thank you in advance.
