Recap: Golden Frog Debunks 7 Myths About VPN Logging and Online Anonymity

We are proud to be partnered with a company focused on transparency and honesty in the VPN industry. Last week Golden Frog debunked 7 myths about online anonymity and VPN logging in their article, I am Anonymous When I Use a VPN - 7 Myths Debunked.

The "7 Myths" article addresses a disturbing trend in the VPN industry over the past year. More and more VPN providers are perpetuating the myth of an "anonymous" or "no logging" VPN service while providing minimal or zero transparency about how they actually handle users' data. This has diverted privacy conscious VPN users to focus on the false promise of anonymity instead of focusing on what really matters when choosing a VPN provider: transparency, trust, ease of use, performance and reliability.

Learn the truth about each of these myths:
