Why VPN is used?
A VPN Provider in the UK that advertised an “anonymous service” on its website was outed for turning over customer information about a LulzSec Hacker to the authorities. As you will read below, limited VPN logging is not necessarily bad, as it helps the VPN provider troubleshoot customer issues, prevent abuse of its IP space and network and offer different VPN plans (such as multi-device or GB limited plans). But advertising one service and delivering another service is wrong.
Website: “surf anonymously”
Website: “PureVPN anonymous VPN service;” “makes you anonymous;” “anonymous web surfing”
“Furthermore, in the course of using PureVPN services, you or someone else on your behalf may give out information about yourself or give access to your system. This information may include, but not limited to:
- Names and IP addresses
- Operating systems
- Operational logs”
Website: “surf anonymously;” “browse anonymously”
“When choosing an access point please note that only this server will process your IP address and request for the webpage you would like to access (the “Targeted Website”).”
“…on the server you selected, your site request and your IP address are received via an encrypted connection.”
Website: “surf anonymously;” “top notch security and anonymity”
