There’s a new report about seven no-log-policy VPN providers that have collected very personal information of users, including but not limited to website addresses, user email for registration on websites, passwords, apps, files accessed, mobile operator (if a cellphone user), phone number, hometown city, etc.
It’s a really worrying news about VPNs. What’s more worrying is that they somehow managed to get the full path of the address the user visited which should be technically impossible.
This can be a new era in online privacy for people. VPNs advertise about privacy and encryption a lot and this can disprove them and make privacy activists/advocates worry about new technical capabilities for online privacy violation and invading.
