It’s the norm for any VPN service to state a “no logs” policy or high-end privacy in order to attract customers. Despite these claims, common problems are:
- logging – and other serious holes in security
- no real anonymity or user data protection
- no privacy – giving information to third parties
I’ll show you how to easily find out if your VPN is really safe!
There are plenty of providers invested in quality infrastructure but lack dedication to security (PureVPN, NordVPN, etc.). But there is one service that has it all.
The guys at AirVPN are security fanatics and provide anonymity, privacy and even premium bandwidth with impressive dedication — I’ll explain why.

How to Tell if VPN’s for Real
Evaluating a service gets technical — but the easiest trick in the book is to check (with Ghostery for example) how many trackers are used. This means that your IP address is sent over to third parties who collect your information. These are companies that give out their data to government entities on a regular basis.
No sincere service will send their data to third parties.
As an example NordVPN is connecting to 9 different third-party services (all do not fit into the screenshot) that collect and store your information.
The self-hosted Piwik Analytics does not connect to any third-party servers. Meaning all collected data is kept on their own AirVPN servers — don’t worry, they don’t store any IP addresses or anything that can be connected to you.
Trust me, I’ve examined so many VPNs to know that “guilty until proven innocent” is the right approach — I got in touch with AirVPN to get to the bottom of things!
Below I’ve listed some of the most important features that have made me personally a fan, which is why I’m proud to promote their services.
