Can you explain how that works? I think of myself as being kind of computer savvy and I don't get it.
If you subscribe to a VPN I assume you're paying with a credit card. So how is anything you're doing anonymous? There has to be a trail of data back to your VPN account.
you're better off googling and reading articles yourself but here are a few somewhat simple ones from respected blogs

now, if you are really doing illegal activity such as hacking or other weirdo things and the fbi is hot on your trial i'm not sure if there is anything you can do to truly keep you anonymous.
