In an open letter to their users and partners, IPVanish VPN announced:

"We want to make our position very clear when it comes to data security: IPVanish VPN stands with Apple in the mission to protect individual digital rights. We are inviting our partners to stand with IPVanish, Apple, and hundreds of other technology companies who are committed to protecting individual users from government access to sensitive personal data.

IPVanish VPN has, and always will, put user security rights above all else. We are committed to protecting our subscriber's data through state-of-the-art encryption methods, our Top Tier VPN network, our zero log policy, and more than 450 servers worldwide. Encryption is an international security protocol that no government should be allowed to compromise. We challenge security-minded brands and individuals, to help educate the world about the importance of encryption.

The only way to provide completely anonymous encryption is to not keep logs, which is why IPVanish has always offered a no logging policy. Edward Snowden said it best when he stated "company access to data becomes liability rather than [an] asset {sic}. Zero-knowledge systems are the response."

IPVanish VPN indicates the FBI's request has far-reaching consequences for Internet users across the globe. The US government's demand to Apple will have irredeemable consequences, and IPVanish does not support a veiled attempt at invading user privacy. We stand with Apple, and we stand up for security.

Please share the many resources we have listed below, and use the hashtag #StandUpForSecurity to help us fight for digital rights."

The United States government has demanded that Apple release data in the San Bernardino shooting case that would require a backdoor into the iPhone, a type of operating system that does not yet exist. Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly opposed this demand in an open letter to customers, citing the order as "a threat to digital security" as it would provide a master key to any individual's information on iOS operating systems without precedent.
