NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Concerned over the British government's repeated attempts to blatantly violate the privacy of its citizens, IPVanish VPN is offering residents a way to hide their digital fingerprint. IPVanish, the world's only Top Tier VPN service, provides fully owned, private security servers offering the anonymity that residents of the United Kingdom need following the draft Investigatory Powers Bill. The proposed legislation requires all British telecommunications companies, such as Vodafone, Tesco, and EE, to collect and store contextual user data for 12 months. In consideration of the drafted bill, British residents are seeking forms of online protection outside of their home country for their dwindling privacy.
IPVanish VPN software directs all Internet traffic through an encrypted tunnel offshore. The traffic is channeled out of the scope of the United Kingdom, rendering individual user identity virtually impossible to distinguish. Neither prying government agencies, nor ISPs will be able to view traffic patterns or surfing history, so users have the ability to browse and communicate online freely and without worry of their privacy being at stake.
The all-encompassing draft Investigatory Powers Bill forces Internet service providers to keep Internet connection records (or ICRs) of the websites their customers have visited and the applications they have used for up to 12 months. If the drafted legislation is passed, these ICRs — along with other communications data — can be requested by nearly 600 government agencies without a warrant.
The objective of this drafted legislation is to detect crime and safeguard the economy, yet it is already drawing critical comparisons to the 2014 DRIPA legislation dubbed 'Snooper's Charter.' The expansion of private communication data collection, which already includes phone calls, text messages, and emails, is prompting many to see this as a threat to the security of their identity.
In the face of these retention laws, IPVanish offers a solution for Britons to protect their civil liberty to online privacy. The most essential components to a VPN service are the logging policy and network operations. IPVanish keeps zero-logs, so no traffic history can be associated with any users. While the majority of VPN services run their network on borrowed equipment, IPVanish owns and operates its core infrastructure. By maintaining every facet of the service, from anonymous servers to VPN software development, IPVanish provides customers with the best-in-class connection speeds and bulletproof security.
