Using VPN Service

Tags:

VPN
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.
  1. 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?
  2. 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.

    A VPN will still not hide your identity completely when using torrents. If there is illegal activity all they need do is go after the VPN provider for the account information. At least that's the last I heard.

    My question is, why did you buy something without know what or how it works. These questions should have been ask to the seller. I would still go back to them to get specific answers on how things operate with their product.
