Hi, I haven't been able to find a good answer on the internet to this question--can VPNs provide safe internet browsing access? Say you have a safe, private internet connection at home.

There is no need to connect to your home computer. In fact, your home computer is probably less secure than the VPN providers servers.

If you are on a cable modem at home you are on a shared connection. Anyone can see your stuff on the network who is on the same share as you.
Did you mean throw lan ?. If yes then don't worry i am not using sharing internet nor i give them to any one
What i am thinking about the people on internet can anyone break the VPN ?

Nobody is going to break the encryption of a good VPN on the fly. People at the hotspot will not be able to see anything you are doing as all traffic will flow through the encrypted tunnel. There is no risk of anyone getting to you from the hotspot once you log into the VPN.

There are many VPN offerings, each with its own properties; generally speaking, VPN-ing to your home computer using an IPsec-based VPN (with encryption+integrity protection enabled), or using the SSL/TLS-based OpenVPN, ensures that the Internet cafe won't see the contents of your communications.

If you use a (public) cafe computer, then you either have to trust that computer (i.e. the cafe operator, and everyone else having had physical access to the computer), or all bets are off; encryption/VPNs/SSL/TLS do not remove the trust requirement in any way.

I have one most trusted VPN installed on my system i.e "PureVPN". It ensures me complete security, 100% online privacy and provides anonymous web browsing. I always use it on public wifi hotspots to secure my online identity and confidential data.

VPNs secure your public internet connection by encrypting your information and shielding your online activity from cybercriminals and even your own Internet Service Provider over the
