VPN company will continue its operations in India by migrating to virtual servers.

PureVPN is refusing to comply with the Government of India’s directives for VPN providers to collect and store user data, and will be removing physical servers from India as a result. Users who wish to access our India servers or an Indian IP will still be able to do so through our virtual servers.

The directions came from the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), a functional organization under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) on April 28, 2022, and will be effective from June 27, 2022 (60 days from the date of issue).

We are a strict no-log company. We do not collect any identifiable information from our users and we cannot be forced into doing this in any market we operate in. The privacy and security of our users is supreme. Collecting such information to keep physical servers active goes against the values of our company. 

PureVPN users who still wish to access India servers or an Indian IP will be able to do so through our virtual servers via Singapore. 

We are not new to virtual servers. PureVPN maintains over 6,500 servers and some of these are virtual servers. We are already running such servers across multiple locations such as Bangladesh, Bahrain and Egypt. A full list can be seen here. 

PureVPN CEO Uzair Gadit, who had earlier expressed concerns over the Government of India’s move, has said, “Privacy and security are the absolute rights of all internet users. We stand in solidarity with all internet users who are at risk.”

“A large number of internet users now use VPNs for security and other purposes. And data shows 45% of Indian internet users were using VPNs in 2021. We care about users inside the country and those looking to access India servers for their needs. All the decisions we make are in the best interest of our users, as was this one,” said Gadit.

We will continue to monitor the situation in India.

PureVPN is committed to providing digital safety, while making sure its users have the safest and most seamless experience online. The VPN service continues serving its 3 million+ satisfied customers with 6500+ servers in 78+ countries.
