What's your definition of "traced to you" ? Because if you're logging into to an account, that's already "traced" back to you.
If you mean by location, then it depends on where your location is set for the VPN. The VPN provides encryption in transit. You are "talking" to your destination site (for example, Facebook), through a VPN tunnel. The entrance to that tunnel is your computer. The exit of that tunnel is the VPN provider's servers. From there, the request is sent to Facebook.com. So Facebook things you're logging in from VPN Server Location, masking your true location.
