    6 months agoare there any vpn’s that dont share intiamrfoon with the cia or western intelligence agencies? it seems like all the servers of these vpn’s are based in u.s friendly countries. one of the main reasons i want to use a vpn is because i am a political disident, and i dont need western spooks breathing down my neck. i am hoping to find something that is based in Russia, not just the server, but the entire enterprise. Viet Nam, Iran, China would also be acceptable.Reply

      Hi Pitu,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts! You are absolutely right about how beneficial it is to use a VPN service that is entirely based out of a “non-western” country. Many of the best VPN services around are actually based outside of such jurisdictions. One example would be NordVPN – https://fried.com/reviews/nordvpn-review – which is based out of Panama and is thus exempt from US jurisdiction and law. Well worth checking out.

      Thanks again Pitu!
