That kind of VPN service might better be called identity masking. You
connect to the service over VPN and all traffic is routed through
their servers. People often use those services to watch streaming TV
from blocked countries.

Setting up a VPN gateway on your computer or network would allow you
secure remote access from other locations, e.g. if you want to grab
some files from your home computer when you're at work or at a
client's site.
