What we believe

Companies with a mission to protect privacy should collect the minimum amount of information about their users, and never share data with others. We consider the ethical and security implications of our decisions deeply, and put principles before profit.

Ethical guidelines

We believe in leading by example, and commit to the following:

Fast connection

No web trackers or pixels

Trackers by ad companies and social networks monitor your actions and aid in profiling you. You won’t find them on ivpn.net - we are a Tracking Free provider.

No logs

No third-party tools

Tools like Google Analytics collect personally identifiable information. We use software hosted only on IVPN-controlled servers to ensure your privacy.

Easy setup

No surveillance ads

Behavioral advertising uses data collected in ways you might not know about. We take a stand against this by refusing to advertise on Facebook and Google.

Free trial

No paid reviews

Paying others to declare you are the best is misleading. Comparison sites often claim independence while auctioning off top spots. We refuse to participate.

24/7 support

No false promises

A VPN alone can't guarantee you anonymity. Protecting your privacy is our goal, so we provide education for privacy-related issues a VPN can’t solve.

Education & Guides

No conflicts of interest

IVPN is independently owned and 100% of our revenues come from subscriptions. We don’t own review sites or sell data harvested from our users.

We believe that following these guidelines should be the norm for all companies claiming to care about your privacy.

How we attract new customers
