What happens if I use Tor or Touchvpn?

First of all, I hear they're legal in the US.

The one and only reason I was thinking of using those now is because I have really strict parents who'd only kick me out over things I take part in. What else can people in my situation do? And yes, I am over 18, but I've struggled with Lyme disease for 2 years and currently working on moving out.

Anyway, the things I would do are:

1) I'm in the BDSM community and I do go on BDSM social/dating websites.

2) I'm a medical marijuana patient and I look up information on dispensaries and go on medical marijuana forums.

3) BDSM videos.

I have to keep those things secret. I'll admit I have used safari for those things before, but now my anxiety about them checking is getting worse, and I had to stop this.

If I use those things and my parents try to look up my history, I know they couldn't see my history, *but* could they see that I was using Tor or Touchvpn? If I use their wifi? If I'm elsewhere and don't have wifi and just use my cellular data?

    There are no legal issues whatsoever in using a VPN. Unless they are incredibly snoopy, you should be fine with them.

      Thank you.
      They could see that the incoming and outgoing traffic is encrypted and their minds would wonder? Is that why I'm still at a slight risk?

    For the most part unless if they're knowledgeable with computing and "snoopy" like Dave mentioned, you should be okay.
