IPVanish, a no-log VPN provider, has released its formal response to impending internet surveillance and data retention legislation in India. In a blog post published on June 7, IPVanish stated that they will not compromise on their no-logs policy despite this new directive demanding logs from VPN providers.
According to this new legislation, VPN providers would be required to collect certain customer data and may need to provide that information to Indian authorities. While the directive is not set to go into effect until later this month, IPVanish remains firm in its stance on protecting its customers’ privacy and will continue operating its Indian servers for the time being. Should the directive be enforced, IPVanish has stated that they will continue to prioritize their consumers' privacy and will take any required action, including shutting down physical servers in India to comply with the Indian government's directive.
“Privacy will never be something we sacrifice, While we will remain watchful of this impending legislation in India, IPVanish is standing firmly by our zero traffic logs policy, and is prepared to take proper action should the law go into effect.”
