Seven VPNs that claim “no log” policy on their websites have exposed user data amounting to 1.2 TB, according to a report from Comparitech and further investigation from vpnMentor.
VpnMentor later discovered that six more VPNs shared the infrastructure and database with UFO VPNs, bringing the total exposed data to 1.2TB. All of these have downloads ranging from 100,000 to a million and have mentioned zero log policy on their respective websites. These so-called free VPNs are —
- UFO VPN
- FAST VPN
- Free VPN
- Super VPN
- Flash VPN
- Secure VPN
- Rabbit VPN (no longer available on Google Play Store)
All seven VPNs have the same payment provider Dreamfii HK Limited, and few even have similar UI on their websites. If you use any of the VPNs mentioned above, we would advise you to switch to a premium VPN or at least change your login credentials. The risk involved with this is if bad actors managed to get hands-on this leak data before it was secured, it could pose several cyber-related attacked to users of these VPNs.
Try as much as possible to avoid free VPN services providers, at your best; you can consider something affordable yet secure from SurfShark.
