5 Really Wrong Myths About US-Based VPNs [Digital Privacy]

VPNs based in the United States frequently get unwarranted criticism, claiming that, by nature of them being based in the US, they are somehow “less secure” or “less private” than VPNs based in more “privacy-friendly” countries. Many of these claims are asserted with insufficient context and no factual evidence, often relying on broad technical assumptions, false equivalences, and headline-friendly conjecture – spinning up pervasive myths about US-based VPNs.

These myths are recycled by well-known online publications and foreign-based VPN companies, all of whom cite each other, never addressing the lack of accuracy in the others’ arguments. This feedback loop perpetuates a deeply flawed message about VPN companies based in the United States.
