NordVPN knows about you just enough to deliver the service you expect – and not a digit more.

Why is the VPN logging policy important?

Without a VPN, all your online traffic passes through your internet service provider (ISP). They can see everything you do online and track your behavior. Sometimes they even hand your internet access data over to advertisers, government agencies, or other third parties.

When you connect to a VPN server, your ISP can no longer see what you do on the internet. However, your VPN provider does have that power. So it’s crucial to know what kind of logs – details about you and your online activity – the provider keeps.

If you want to get a VPN for privacy, compare your options by looking at these details:

  • the types of data the service collects about users and their internet usage;
  • the external support or tracking tools it uses;
  • the country where the service operates and the local legal requirements for collecting user data;
  • the payment options the service offers and how these are linked to the user identity.

As you can see, a lot of potentially sensitive personal information is included in usage logs. VPN providers are not supposed to collect them at all – if you find one that does, run the other way!

While most providers claim to run no-log VPN services, many still collect extensive connection logs. That’s a problem because third parties could use this information about your internet access to identify you.
