Recently my VPN provider asked me to upload my scanned ID, showing my picture, full name etc.

They claimed it is for "fraud" prevention, which makes sense from their perspective, but not from mine.

When I'm connected to my VPN I expect some privacy, isn't it (one of the things) a VPN is for?

Besides that, they already have my credit card number, full name and address on their records. Should I dare to misuse their service, my bank would identify me in a second and they could be in my door within minutes.

But they still feel it's Ok to ask their customers for even more data, I didn't like it at all.

What if they're (secretly) recording all websites and data transmitted via their VPN and now they'll be pinning it my ID on their systems. Not that I have anything that secret, but it shouldn't matter, I want to keep my private stuff private.

I have written back to them complaining about this policy, but haven't heard from them yet. I might be better off just leaving them.

So please if you know of VPN providers with more respect for it's customers privacy, please share them here!

Would be great to find one with:

- Fast speeds
- Written promise of not logging customer's traffic
- Private payment methods such as Bitcoin
- Servers in many countries

haha do compromised porn webservers or botnets count?  Grin


more seriously tho, would a VPN hosted out of japan enable me to get mt gox api data faster? I was thinking maybe VPN traffic has a higher QOS or ICMP type "rating" that gives it a slightly higher priority?

Have only heard good things about Cognitive Cryptography.

If you want the ultimate privacy, get a VPS and set up your own VPN, then you don't need to rely on a provider not to be logging etc.

Just remember to pay for the VPS using BitCoins (where possible) and use TOR or similar while doing so or else the usage of the VPS can be easily tied to you since it's clear that only one person is using that VPS. I still think TOR (despite its shortcomings), is still the best option we have for anonymity/privacy provided we're smart about its usage and we're not too concerned about speed. VPNs offer a nice 'in-between' though I know of some people combining both together...

In any case, just putting it out there that we're a VPN provider based in Malaysia that accepts BitCoins.

BolehVPN
http://www.bolehvpn.net
  • No Logs
  • Company is subject to Malaysian laws
  • P2P supported
  • Special traffic obfuscation options available for use in highly restrictive countries
  • Servers in 9 countries around the world
  • SOCKS 5 proxies secured behind VPN options available
  • Full BitCoin integration

In relation to why we were left out of the 2013 TorrentFreak article despite being mentioned in last year's roundup, I have contacted TF and they have acknowledged their mistake and will include us in the next update shortly. Cheesy Fingers crossed!

AirVPN + Tor is perfect.

1. They accept Bitcoins.
2. They use standard OpenVPN software instead of something proprietary or otherwise inferior.
3. They let you map incoming ports.
4. You can connect to them via Tor. This means two things:
 a) It's not possible for them to know where you're connecting from even if they are forced via court order to secretly start keeping logs.
 b) You can still use sites that block Tor exit nodes.

We do offer VPS with a VPN template based on ubuntu 12.04LTS if anybody wants that. We also have set up a VPN with L2TP/IPSec, OpenVPN and PPTP to achieve maximum device support.

Bitronic Technologies:

1. We accept Bitcoins.
2. We use standard OpenVPN as well as L2TP/IPSec and PPTP so you can use your android and/or iPhone with our VPN as well.
3. We will be adding custom port mapping once the service takes off.
4. You can connect us them via Tor. This means two things:
 a) It's not possible for them to know where you're connecting from even if they are forced via court order to secretly start keeping logs.
 b) You can still use sites that block Tor exit nodes.

So we match most of the features you spoke of, plus we support SSH tunneling.

The one feature that nobody is offering yet is hidden service access, so that you don't need to route through a (possibly congested) exit node in order to connect.

If you have any ideas on a good way to implement that field them and I'll see what can be done.

It's not hard at all to set up a Tor hidden service that forwards to an OpenVPN daemon.

How to do it and still get acceptable performance with high traffic volume? The best person to ask about that would probably be Dread Pirate Roberts (Silk Road).

Yeah the issue of running an exit node on any of my boxes is that it will eat up bandwidth

You don't need to run an exit node to operate a hidden service. In fact you don't even need to be a relay.

https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-hidden-service.html.en

Since the anonymity of the people connecting is the issue, not concealing the fact that you're operating the hidden service, you could set up a Tor in client mode to reduce the amount of bandwidth consumed.

I suppose that is a possiblity, however that kind of defeats the point of a 100Mbps port. Running as a tor client I've never seen speeds over 2Mbps

The reason a customer would choose to connect over Tor is because they want additional anonymity at the expense of speed. You can't be ordered by a court to keep records of information you don't have and can't get.
