There are two aspects to server security and privacy for a good VPN service:

The initially is no matter whether the VPN provider’s server network is secure and can not be hacked into by criminals trying to sniff information and individual facts or get information about the general network configuration and principal server.

The second is the location of the servers. If all the servers AND the VPN provider’s location are in cooperative regions such as the United States and Europe, the safety is about as fantastic as employing your neighborhood ISP. If none of the servers are in non cooperative or off shore areas, then information retention laws apply to that VPN provider just as if they had been your ISP.

A recent criminal investigation involving the encrypted e-mail provider, Hushmail, which is based in Canada, is a case in point. Unbeknown to one of its customers, Hushmail (against its stated privacy policy) logged and cached data about the user for months and delivered that data to government authorities in a different nation pursuant to court orders (this was a run of the mill criminal- not terrorism or human trafficking). Had Hushmail been situated in Panama or some other off shore location, it is much less likely that Hushmail would have acted on behalf of the police authorities.

If the VPN provider is physically situated in a cooperative jurisdiction but has servers in non cooperative jurisdictions like Panama, Russia, China, then this is improved privacy. But the highest privacy is if Both the physical place of the VPN provider and at least some of their servers are in non cooperative off shore areas. Then formel 1 live can’t be enforced and the VPN provider is far much less probably to breach its stated privacy policy to log, cache and hand over your data/facts/IPs.
