The new Investigatory Powers Act will force connection service providers in the UK to collect internet connection records (ICRs). Any VPN based in the United Kingdom is subject to these new laws. Since Private Internet Access is not based in the United Kingdom, we maintain our no logs policy. The Investigatory Powers Act expands existing surveillance laws and brings government mass surveillance into the Internet age.
The UK government can access 12 months of your Internet history and phone call records without a warrant. Investigators now also have an easier time to get a warrant to infiltrate and infect your computer or smartphone should they wish to investigate you further.
The best way to mask your internet connection records is by using a non-UK VPN service with no logs. Choose Private Internet Access to Protect Your Privacy™.
