No Log policy
A total number of seven VPNs that claim “no log” policy on their websites have revealed user data amounting to 1.2 TB, a report published by Comparitech and more inspection from VpnMentor states that:
Report on declaration of “No Log policy”
VpnMentor later found that six more VPNs split the framework and directory with UFO VPNs, bringing the total unprotected data to 1.2TB. All of these have downloads ranging from 100,000 to a million and have declared zero log policy on their respective websites.
These are the so called VPNs;
- UFO VPN
- FAST VPN
- Free VPN
- Super VPN
- Flash VPN
- Secure VPN
- Rabbit VPN (no longer available now on Google Play Store)
From the commencing report, up to 894GB of data has been leaked by the UFO VPN which is based in China, despite having a no-logging policy. The uncover data includes passwords, IP addresses, VPN session tokens, the operating system used, and much more. On the Google Play Store free VPN app has above 10 million downloads. Comparitech begins data logs in an uncovered Elastic search cluster and said over 20 million data entries were being added every day.
Despite Comparitech communicating to UFO VPN firstly, it did not protect the data until vpnMentor’s team reached out and that was at the minimum 18 days later. Surprisingly, the UFO VPN team claims that they were incapable to secure the data ascribed to the Coronavirus.
UFO VPN also quoted that the VPN service keeps “anonym zed” data logs for traffic monitoring, despite knowing that the leaked data contains IP addresses, passwords, and much more. The research team from VpnMentor told some records even had home addresses, payment information, device information, etc.
Payment provider is same for all the seven VPNs known as Dreamfii HK Limited. Some even have similar UI on their websites. If you use any of the above-indicated VPNs, we would recommend you to switch to a premium VPN or at least change your login credentials. You can check our list of trusted free VPN Android apps.
It is not the first time “free VPNs” have been implicated in collecting user data. Last year, over twenty VPN apps, with more than 35 million downloads were harvesting user data.
