The biggest VPN-providers don't care about your privacy

I do love and live for privacy and I highly recommend everyone to get a VPN. A VPN encrypts your traffic and sends it to a VPN-server and then later out on the Internet. This is a great method to hide your Internet habits for the government and your ISP - often you can even bypass censorship!

A VPN-provider should take privacy very seriously and they should know what they are doing. So I made a small list of the 15 biggest, most well-known VPN-providers out there and had one goal in mind - find low hanging fruit.

By low hanging fruit I mean small and stupid misstages they've done. This can be by setting cookies when you just visit the site, use Cloudflare, use Google-services(fonts, analytics, email), using trackers and if they're trying to hide something.

The key to a successful VPN-provider is to fully live by respecting your costumers and visitors privacy. A provider should sell trust, that theirs product; trust!

I do also understand that these providers are companies and they have to make money somehow. Of course it's easier to use third party-services to save time, hassle and money but then you should never try to sell that your service is privacy-friendly.

Also, this article is 100% up to you to take seriously. I do care if my provider have thought about these easy-to-fix things because that make me take them more seriously and I hope you do to!

Alright, why should I care?



Like I said, it's totally up to you! But please keep in mind that you're paying for privacy and security so if your provider uses services that does not respect others privacy they only sell what you see.

I do care if my provider have thought of hosting their own mailservers so others don't snoop on mails, such as support, password-resets and payment information. Do you want Google to have that information about you; that you bought an VPN?

I do care if I visit Google as soon as I visit my providers website to login, pay or just view some news.

I do care if my provider uses Incapsula or Cloudflare because neither of those are Tor-friendly. Also ALL your traffic is routed through Cloudflare in America.

I do care if the website sets cookies for tracking purposes as soon as I visit the site, meaning that I do not login or such. Do I really need to block cookies just for viewing?

I do care if the domain and/or service is run by an anonymous person. That person can be anyone! Maybe even a bad person...

Yes, I CARE! And I hope these companies will to.
