Will using a VPN prevent you from getting hacked through your computer and phone? YES and NO!



---------------------------------------------------------------

Will using a VPN prevent you from getting hacked through your computer and phone?
15 Answers
Jose A Imperial
The right answer is NO.  VPNs encrypt traffic from point A (VPN Client) to point B (VPN Server). This traffic won't be easily decrypted that much is true but from point B to the web page or service you are connecting to the traffic can be sniffed, decrypted or in risk of man in the middle attacks (so now you have to consider TLS or other mediums of encryption from point B to the service).
As you can see you are only tunneling your connections via the VPN but the traffic goes through. If you installed malware it will connect back to it's control server via your vpn tunnel. Traffic coming into your computer (scans, xploits, etc.) will still go thru forwarded by the VPN server.   Padmanabhan Mahadevanalready answered this correctly, even air gapped computers (the ones you purposely don't connect to the network as a security measure) get hacked eventually.
So in short, we wish it was that simple to prevent a hack as using a VPN.  
Your response is private.
Is this answer still relevant and up to date?
Muhammad Hayat
No you can’t protect yourself using a VPN first of all you should know what VPN is and how it actually works. A virtual private network extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network.
Leighton Hund
No.
It will only make it harder.
There is no 100% fool-proof way of preventing hacks besides being disconnected from the internet, erasing all information from your hard drive or just removing it completely, and having your computer removed from a power source.
A hacker, with enough time and resources, can get into your computer, even through a vpn.
Widjan Bost
The correct answer is No. VPNs are not designed to prevent computer and phone from hacking instead VPNs encrypt traffic from point A (VPN Client) to point B (VPN Server). This traffic won't be easily decrypted that much is true but from point B to the web page or service you are connecting to the traffic can be sniffed, decrypted or in risk of man in the middle attacks (so now you have to consider TLS or other mediums of encryption from point B to the service).
In today’s world, where there is so many users of mobile phones in which they tent to complete all the essential works there on the phones itself. Online protection is becoming one of the most important thing that you need for your mobiles as well as your computers. For that there are several ways that may provide you some kind of prevention from getting hacked but might not really work -
  1. By creating strong passwords and do not saving them on your phones.
  2. Or, deleting the browsing history after using your sell phones.
Or you can look for a better option that can help you out to make you more secure and prevent you from getting hacked online i.e.,
Invest in VPN (Virtual Private Network) that can hide your IP address, make you anonymous and also provides you with some of the better results that can help you to get the best results for your needs. You can also try Fast VPN Service Provider that is one of the best VPN service provider that I’am using for securing my system from getting hacked.
Steve Pote
No.
Your connection is safer, and much more discrete. Not bulletproof.
The VPN removes you from the network segment you are connected through but that doesn't mean the new connection can't be snooped.
Here's an example of the NSA doing it...complete with pictures.
Sam Anderson
Premium vpn service have about 256 bit high encryption trying to hack an encryption that high is like trying to crack a bank safe with a kitchen knife
Once you are connected to a vpn service even your service provider can’t tell what you are up to. because you now have an encrypted tunnel through which, all your online activities is carried out.
Stanley Tweedle
Cell phones and tablets can be hacked today using different methods such as hacking through WiFi network or via the SIM card, cracking the password, etc.
But using free spy software applications is the easiest method of getting access to someone’s phone and no VPN will protect you from such attacks.
Nick Adams
Well, I would have to disagree with the "no" state here. Encryption protocols are close to impossible to be hacked. Since even NSA cannot crack OpenVPN and IPsec encryption algorithms, I sort of doubt any hacker can.

It doesn't mean, however, that all your info is secure with VPN as some of the other posters mentioned. The reason is that your data is secure for as long as it's encrypted and becomes vulnerable once it leaves secure channels. So if you're sending something to a person B whose connection is not secure, person B can be hacked and this way a hacker can steal the data you send him/her.

But I'm not sure any of the above applies to VPN in a typical sense. If you're looking to secure your communication from 3rd party spying on you, hackers on public Wi-Fi and similar activities, VPN will guarantee your privacy. Please refer to the Best VPN guide. Some VPN companies also offer advanced security features more anonymity.
Andrew Daviel
No.
Most of the time you hack yourself, by installing malware someone tricked you into downloading. Nothing will help with that except education and sometimes a good antivirus.

But if you are in a known insecure environment - on wifi at an airport or a hacker conference - then if you use a secure VPN to tunnel to a safe network and work from there, you will be safer than doing web browsing, email etc. directly from your computer.
Thana
No. A VPN just hides what websites you’re visiting (“you” as in your phone/computer from a certain IP ie. your home internet or your office internet). However, if your device is infected with a virus that can log your keys (what you type) or other information, then a VPN will not make you immune to said hacks.
Laura Zheng
Yes. VPN helps to hide your local IP, which prevents you from getting hacked. If you want to protect your online safety and privacy, it is recommended to use a VPN both for PC and phone. Here is a tutorial: How to hide your true IP address on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS?
Andre Heinemann
Generally speaking the answer is NO, but it does make it harder for hackers. You are simply tunneling your connection which is different from blocking unwanted incoming traffic.
Jane Waldo
VPN is a way to bolster your online security. It creates a secure tunnel between your computer and every website or application online allowing you to anonymously appear to be anywhere you choose.
