One of the Big Four Auditing Firms Validated That PureVPN Doesn’t Keep Logs of:
*Plus, our audit is always-on. We can be audited on an ongoing basis at any time without warning!
You trust a VPN to be respectful of your privacy when you connect to its servers and use the service day in and day out. But when a VPN fails to deliver upon its promise of being a truly anonymous service, it doesn’t only disregard your privacy, it also disregards your trust.
Trust cannot be earned solely upon verbal commitments, especially in this industry. It is only through irrefutable proof that you can take a tech company’s word, and we’ve got you: announcing our independent audit done by the world’s top auditing firm.
The world trusts them and so do you. PureVPN respects your trust which is why we have continuously asked the top auditing firms in the world that you trust to analyze the entirety of PureVPN’s systems and technical logs.
As expected, they all have the same conclusion, verifying that:
PureVPN doesn’t violate its zero-log claims, and thus, assures a safe and trustworthy VPN service.
Trust is never static. It is a continuous exchange between you and us. Your friend can break your trust and so could we, theoretically. But we aren’t going to do that to you, and here’s why: we have opted for an ‘always-on’ audit policy, which means our systems and servers are open to unscheduled audits throughout the year. That’s right: an auditor can show up at our doorsteps without any notice whatsoever, and we will be ready to prove yet again that we will never store your personal information in our systems. Ever.
As a privacy-conscious user, you wouldn’t settle on an audit or two. To ease your worries, we are constantly seeking and requesting leading third-party auditors to verify our no-log claims.
We don’t keep your connection logs or track your VPN activities. We have absolutely no idea what you browse, download, or upload while using PureVPN.
PureVPN packs IPv6 leak protection, DNS leak protection, and WebRTC leak protection that ensure round-the-clock privacy.
We are committed to delivering a VPN service you can trust and rely on. To uphold our commitment, we will go above and beyond to get our services audited by the world's leading independent audit firms.
Get a one-off successful privacy audit and you are good for the next 10 years or so.
Our philosophy is different. We’re not done after one. To us, cultivating trust doesn’t work that way. It requires continuous efforts, devotion, and commitment. Sticking to that belief, we decided to get our systems audited by KPMG, a Big Four auditing firm that serves the Fortune 500.
We approached KPMG for the inspection of our servers. During the audit, KPMG confirmed that they were indeed looking at live PureVPN servers, and that they found exactly what we claim: no user logs. That is, at the end of the audit, KPMG validated that PureVPN shows no indications of monitoring or storing users’ personally identifiable information.
We approached a California-based leading independent auditor, Altius IT, for our first audit that would later pave the way for future audits.
Altius IT is a certified information systems auditor with over 1,000 of audits and assessments under its belt. This is their bread and butter (just Google them to see for yourself). We asked their experts to probe into our systems, configuration servers, and technical logs to analyze if it meets our claims of keeping no logs.
Altius IT endorsed in its report that it:
“Did not find any evidence of any logs that could lead to identifying a specific person and/or the person’s activity when using the PureVPN service.”
In simple terms, a no-log virtual private network refers to a VPN provider that doesn’t maintain logs of its users’ activities. That means we store no data about what you do with our VPN.
It all comes down to what your needs are. If you regularly use public Wi-Fi connections, a VPN can keep your information safe from hackers. Do you want to watch content from other countries on your favorite streaming services?
A VPN lets you get around geo-restrictions by giving you an IP address from any region of your choosing. When you’re visiting or living in censored nations, you can’t gain access to certain websites and services.
Using a VPN, you’re able to bypass these restrictions and use the Internet freely and openly. If you can related to any of these scenarios, then yes, a VPN is a tool that you’d be silly not to use.
When you use a VPN, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can’t tell what you’re doing online or where your traffic is originating from. After all, the connection is secured using highly robust encryption algorithms.
That means your ISP can’t see what websites you’re visiting, what files you’re downloading, or anything else you’re up to once connected. However, it’s possible they might be able to decipher that your IP address belongs to a VPN provider.
A VPN makes it close to impossible for you to be traced online as your browsing activities are protected from third-parties. However, you can be tracked if the VPN service you’re using stores logs or leaks your IP address. For this reason, you should stick to no-log and leak-proof VPNs.
This is often the case with most free VPN services, as collecting and selling your private data is their primary source of income. However, some paid VPNs keep logs despite claiming otherwise as well. You can avoid this by choosing independently audited no-log VPN providers, such as PureVPN.
