Millions of VPN Users Endangered by this Cross-Border Intelligence Pact

Your government is plotting against you and your desire for privacy! I bet you are not surprised, right?

“According to data collated and analysed by TechRadar Pro, almost half (46.6%) of all VPN services are headquartered in countries known to participate in the Fourteen Eyes intelligence sharing pact. Members of this agreement – including the UK, USA, Canada and more – could reportedly use its terms to circumvent laws that prohibit the surveillance of citizens, which poses a significant threat to privacy-focused VPN users.”
