Hong Kong-based PureVPN is the latest player to get audited and prove their no-log status.
Audits are a recent trend in the VPN industry, but a welcome one nonetheless. After all, you will come across many VPN providers that say they don’t store any logs of user activity, but more often than not, those claims are exaggerated.
By hiring third-party auditors to assess their systems, VPN providers can back up their privacy claims with evidence. With the successful audit, PureVPN has proved that not only do they offer a top-notch service but also deliver on their promise of storing no logs whatsoever.
PureVPN: A Proven No-Log VPN!
To reinforce their trustworthiness among its customers, PureVPN brought on board a leading US-based independent Certified Information Systems Auditor to conduct a thorough examination of its no-log claims.
“We DO NOT keep any record of your browsing activities, connection logs, records of the VPN IPs assigned to you, your original IPs, your connection time, the history of your browsing, the sites you visited, your outgoing traffic, the content or data you accessed, or the DNS queries generated by you.”
The following conclusion was provided by Altius IT after completing the audit:
“[We] did not find any evidence of system configurations and/or system/service log files that independently, or collectively, could lead to identifying a specific person and/or the person’s activity when using the PureVPN service.”
The Right Move
Two years ago, PureVPN’s long-running reputation as a reliable VPN provider was dented by an unfortunate event involving a specific law enforcement agency. As a result, its users began to question whether or not they can trust the service with their data.
The third-party audit couldn’t have come at a better time for PureVPN and clarifies any confusions regarding their reliability. These findings should go a long way in assuring its users that they can trust the VPN provider with their privacy and security.
