Commenting on the US Congress’ Statement About Unsafe VPNs
Lately, we have been receiving requests from our users to comment on a particular recent United States congress statement. In this statement, two Democrats of the US congress (senator Ron Wyden and representative Anna G. Eshoo) urge action against problematic and unsafe actors in the VPN industry. They also list several arguments that, as they claim, represent “deceptive advertising and data collection practices”. As a Virtual Private Network provider that prioritizes our users’ security and privacy and takes pride in our customers’ trust, we at VPN Unlimited would very much like to comment on the specific claims listed in the statement. But first, it’s essential to take into consideration the context of this statement - the Roe v. Wade debacle. What Does Roe v. Wade Have to Do With Unsafe VPNs? The letter with the statement in question comes in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the US's decades-long protections for abortion. According to the congresspeople, one outcome of this decision is that people in states that criminalize abortion may turn to VPNs for privacy to protect their location history, browsing data, and even period tracking apps.
