The Truth About Logging

We’re sharing two more of our VPN myths this week – Myth #4 and Myth #7. This week’s myths are all about logging, and explain what a “no logs” claim really means and why logging isn’t always a bad thing.

VPN Myths Logging

Myth #4: When my VPN provider’s privacy policy says they “don’t log,” that means I am anonymous.

Reality: When a VPN provider simply says in their privacy policy they perform “no logging” it does not guarantee online anonymity or privacy.

What Golden Frog Does: Golden Frog is transparent about what data we retain, and we log a minimal amount of data and only keep it for 30 days.

 

VPN Myths Logging

Myth #7: Any VPN logging is bad.

Reality: By logging a minimal amount of data, VPN providers can vastly improve your experience when using a VPN.

What Golden Frog Does: We only retain the minimum amount of data to operate our business, and delete it as soon as we don’t need it (30 days). We own our own servers, run our own DNS (VyprDNS) and manage our own network. Golden Frog is also incorporated in Switzerland, which offers favorable online privacy laws that we use to protect users.
