Despite criticism, Proton VPN stand true to their no log policy
You may have heard about ProtonMail's legally justified IP log case in recent news, if not, I wrote about it here
The difference between ProtonMail and Proton VPN is that under Swiss law VPN companies CANNOT log IP addresses and traffic while connected through a tunnel but IF passed by the Swiss canton court of Geneva or a Swiss federal court, they can be forced to turn on logging after a subpoena has been served. Despite this ProtonMail remains one of, if not thee most secure email provider in the world because of the unique laws Switzerland has regarding privacy.
Proton must comply with Swiss law. As soon as a crime is committed, privacy protections can be suspended and we're required by Swiss law to answer requests from Swiss authorities.— Andy Yen (@andyyen) September 5, 2021
If this had happened in any other country within the EU, UK, Asia, Australia, or US the outcome would've been a lot different.
For your privacy, ProtonVPN has a strict no-logs policy which was successfully tested in a 2019 legal case. Under Swiss law, there’s also currently no way to force ProtonVPN to start logging. You can learn more here: https://t.co/IHo1Aavlh3— ProtonVPN (@ProtonVPN) September 29, 2021
