Is your VPN lying to you?
It’s no secret that there are oodles of shady VPN services that promise to protect your privacy as you surf the internet, but may, in fact, actually be worthless. After all, internet privacy is one part moving target and two parts shell game with your money and trust, so no one’s surprised that the post-Snowden privacy panic turned into a gold rush for the unscrupulous.
One method VPN providers use to bilk trusting customers is to do shady things with customer records. We’ve also seen them misconfigure critical security settings, de-anonymize customers and only take action when caught.
