As we’ve mentioned before on this blog, not all commercial VPN services are concerned about protecting your privacy, with some platforms presenting just as many surveillance risks as a regular ISP.
VPN services are, of course, free to log your data and there’s nothing dishonest about this practice if it’s openly disclosed. However, these days the acronym “VPN” has almost become a synonym for “online privacy” and many VPN companies appear to trade on this association, even if what they offer is not a real privacy service.
In this series of posts we’re going to take a closer look at some of the most popular VPN services. We will break down their privacy polices and see if they are really focused on protecting your personal data.
