Beware of these VPNs they leak your data

by Cosmas

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. It is the easiest and most effective way for people to protect their internet traffic and hide their identities online, while giving you the ability to bypass restricted contents. Although, lately, VPNs have being widely accepted and used among internet users, we have seen that the products employed to protect us can be the one exploiting you.

This article gives you an insight of VPNs that falsely claim to have “no logs”. They collect user data and provided the information to government agencies.

There is no obvious proof or verification of their claim, which means we have to take their word.

Here are a few:

HideMyAss VPN

  • HideMyAss provided logs to US authorities for a hacking case. According to Top10vpn.com “In 2011, London-based VPN provider HideMyAss (HMA) played a key role in the arrest of Cody Kretsinger, a 23 year-old Phoenix resident. Kretsinger was a member of LulzSec, a spinoff of the hacker-activist group Anonymous”.

IPVanish VPN

In 2016, IPVanish cooperated with the FBI to assist with a criminal investigation. Despite a privacy policy that was explicit about its zero-logging practices, IPVanish ultimately conceded to legal requests and provided detailed connection data to authorities.

So as you can see that there will always be bad examples of VPN products. However, there are still a significant number of trustworthy VPNs that have earned the crown of “no logs” services.

Your Privacy is your Right.
