ROAD TOWN, Virgin Islands (British), October 4, 2023 (Newswire.com) - In today's ever-changing digital landscape, cyber threats, data breaches, and unauthorized surveillance have become increasingly prevalent. Unfortunately, many corporations disregard user security and privacy, creating a challenging environment for internet users to distinguish trustworthy services from unreliable ones. In these circumstances, PureVPN, a subsidiary of PureSquare, is pleased to announce PureVPN’s accreditation under the newly launched VPN Trust Seal program, initiated by the Internet Infrastructure Coalition’s VPN Trust Initiative. This action holds significant meaning as it showcases PureVPN’s dedication to users worldwide.
The launch of the VPN Trust Seal accreditation program provides a clear public indicator that a participating VPN provider follows established best practices for delivering service in the following five areas:
- Security: VPNs will use the necessary security measures, including strong encryption and authentication protocols, to appropriately address the risks.
- Advertising practices: Given the complexity and different use cases for VPNs, claims must not mislead.
- Privacy: VPNs should keep as little data as they deem necessary to provide the service and only produce data to law enforcement when legally required.
- Disclosure and transparency: To foster trust, member companies must take steps toward informing users and the public about their actions and procedures.
- Social responsibility: VPN providers will promote VPN technology to support access.
