When people turn to a VPN service, they expect full-on anonymity. Particularly when the VPN service says, “we do NOT keep any logs that can identify … a user” or “we have a strict zero-logs policy.”
These days, it seems that when it comes to claims about VPN logging policy, it is mostly just marketing speak. Many VPN services actually keep logs of user activity despite making claims to the contrary — in other words, they are disguised privacy traps waiting to be triggered.
