VPNs offer many benefits, but the most widely used reason is for users to protect their privacy whilst on the internet.
VPNs, or virtual private networks, offer a service to users to allow them to keep their browser activity private so that not even your internet service provider (ISP) can even see it. Well, so they claim...
However, in recent times VPNs have been all over the news for not keeping user activity as safe as they claim their services to offer.
VPNs claim to offer utmost privacy by promising not to keep logs of user activity, however, the problem is that in order to effectively do this, some logging of user activity is necessary in order for the systems to know which internet providers to sent data to and from.
But the real question is whether or not these VPN services store more logs than is required, and what do they actually do with these logs once they have completed their task of data transfer.
