What the benefit of connecting to a proxy and a vpn at the same time?

Does it display the proxy ip, or the VPN ip?

What actually happens when you connect to VPN is, you give data to VPN server and ask it to give it to Proxy. VPN takes your package and gives it to proxy server. Then proxy server sends the request to target server (like So what the actual IP that SERVER (google in this case) uses, depends on Which one has sent the request to server.

  1. It would be harder to track something in the net
  2. Lower speed connection!
