Almost every VPN provider today claims that it keeps zero logs of user data. You only need to make one google search and you’ll instantly find thousands of search results of multiple VPN services claiming that they keep zero-logs of user data.
“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.”
But despite having a privacy-friendly policy, can you still take the VPN service to its word? Fortunately, you don’t have to, because the Hong-Kong based VPN service actually went a step ahead and asked one of the most reliable auditor to verify its zero-logs claim. And the result of this audit is a positive one for the VPN service.
Altius IT Audits PureVPN
Altius IT is a California-based expert known for its reliability and transparency. The auditor has over 25-years of experience in IT audits, Penetration testing, and cybersecurity. Therefore, it is safe to say that any certification provided by Altius IT should be considered a reliable one.
Upon auditing PureVPN, Altius IT clearly states:
“Altius IT 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.”
We can therefore assume that PureVPN is a reliable VPN brand that stores zero-logs of user data. After this certification, PureVPN becomes only the sixth VPN brand to be certified as a no-log VPN brand, with the other five being ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Tunnelbear, Vypr VPN, and PIA.
So if you’re looking for a privacy friendly VPN service, then PureVPN is one of the few VPN services you should go for.
