➠Can governments request data from our users?
Our policy is as follows: we cannot share what we do not know.
We must legally comply with the legislation of countries in which we operate. So we make sure that if authorities do come knocking on our door, we have no sensitive information to share, notably what our customers use the VPN for or what websites they visited.
➠What, if anything, do you track?
•Let us start by saying that we do not track:
•The websites you visit
•The virtual locations (IP addresses) you used while surfing
•Your real IP address
•Any information that can link you to any action, such as downloading a file, or visiting a particular website
➠How can I view blocked websites?
If you love to travel you most likely know the following scenario: You are in a hotel room and want to watch the latest TV show in your own language – but the page you are normally going to for streaming re-runs or the local news displays a “Not accessible via this country” sign. They are geo-locked. VPNO can help with that: by giving you an IP address from another country, you can fool the website into thinking you are somewhere else, thereby by-passing restricted content.
➠What type of encryption is used, and how secure is it?
VPNO uses the 256 Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), which is the norm used worldwide to encrypt data.
256 refers to the key size – the larger the size, the possible key combinations. It would require tremendous effort to try all possible combination keys: 256-bit encryption offers more combination possibilities than there are stars in the universe (a septillion or 1042 stars), and the time it takes for billions of computers to crack the encryption goes beyond the age of our universe (13.8 billion years).
