Can you be tracked with a vpn?

If you use a reliable VPN service, your browsing activities become unreadable to intruders. However, this doesn't mean that a VPN user is totally untraceable online. Internet service providers (ISPs), websites, and even governments can determine if you're using a VPN. Yes, the police can track a VPN user by monitoring their IP address.

However, they will only have access to the user's VPN IP address. Whether or not they catch the person behind the VPN connection depends on the VPN provider. While VPNs are designed to protect your privacy and prevent others from tracking your online activity, there are a few ways you can track you even when using a VPN. If you use a VPN to connect to your employer's network, they may be able to track your online activity and location.

If you use a VPN to connect to the Internet, your government may be able to track your online activity. That's why people turn to VPNs (virtual private networks), which do a great job of protecting their users from digital espionage, tracking, data collection, invasive advertising, and cybercriminals. Using an encrypted VPN connection will make it difficult for someone to track your online activity. If someone tries to track you down, they'll only see the IP address of the VPN server and it'll be complete gibberish.

If you don't use a VPN, your traffic won't be encrypted and your IP address will be visible to anyone who wants to track you. If someone really wants to track you online, they'll probably find a way to do that, whether you're using a VPN or not. If you use a VPN to connect to the Internet, your Internet provider may be able to track your online activity. For example, your ISP can track your activity if you use a VPN that doesn't encrypt your traffic.

The web giant may not know your IP, but all the activity linked to your account can be tracked as easily as if you didn't have a VPN. Because so much data is collected, a VPN can't stop websites from tracking you with browser fingerprints. Basically, if your VPN disconnects and you visit a new site before you can reconnect, the site will track your real IP address.
