1) Check for IP leaks. One way to see if your traffic is encrypted and flowing through the VPN tunnel is to check for IP leaks. You can do this by visiting websites like ipleak.net or dnsleaktest.com while connected to your VPN. If your real IP address is leaking, then your traffic isn’t truly being protected by the VPN.
2) Use a DNS leak test tool. In addition to checking for IP leaks, you can also use a DNS leak test tool like DNSSEC Analyzer (https://dnssec-analyzer.verisignlabs.com/) to see if your DNS queries are being securely routed through the VPN tunnel. If they’re not, then it’s possible that someone could snoop on your internet activity even though you’re using a VPN connection.
3) Look for the padlock icon in your browser’s address bar . When you visit websites over HTTPS (which should be most of them these days), look for the padlock icon in the address bar before entering any sensitive information like passwords or credit card numbers. This padlock indicates that SSL encryption is being used and that your traffic should be private from eavesdroppers – but it doesn’t necessarily mean that all of the traffic on that website is going through a VPN server since some sites host their content externally without using SSL encryption.”
The tracking of an IP address through a VPN can be difficult because a VPN can mask or change the apparent IP address. In addition, many VPN providers keep logs only for a limited time or do not keep logs at all. Nevertheless, it may still be possible to track an IP address through a VPN by using special tools or services designed for this purpose.
