How does proxy.sh truly guarantee my privacy?

As a professional provider of anonymous virtual private networks, our system is designed in such a way that you will get hidden with other customers behind the same IP address, and that none of you will be logged. This makes sure that there is absolutely no way from the outside to confirm your identity and presence on the Internet.

Nonetheless, your privacy might still be breached in two ways, let alone the fact that our system might get compromised as a whole: the first is when we need to undertake an intervention where we would see the traffic going through a VPN (even though it would remain encrypted), and the second is when a government or any local law enforcement authority would come and intervene on our VPN (local monitoring).

Proxy.sh has a response to both problems and is the only VPN provider to offer you such a complete protection of your privacy.

Our Ethical Policy provides you a guarantee that we will always make you aware when an intervention needs to take place across our network, either in response to an abuse (through the Transparency Report) or a technical issue involving a potential breach of your privacy (through the Network Alerts). This has often worried some people, but the reality is that we are the only VPN provider to openly keep you alerted when such an intervention needs to take place, while any other VPN provider simply prefers to hide this from their customers and the public as the prisoner’s dilemma tells them to do so (the truth being that everyone needs to intervene on the VPN to keep it afloat, and nobody wants to confess this to customers and public, except us).

Most importantly, our ethical policy provides a triple strategy to prevent any government from unfairly breaching into your privacy. The first aspect of this strategy is that we will never act in response to an abuse complaint when this action would lead to compromising your privacy. We rather recommend law enforcement authorities to come inspect our network themselves. The second aspect of this strategy is to keep you updated via the Transparency Report when an intervention that needs to take place, exists. The third and last aspect of this strategy is to also keep you updated via the Warrant Canary of any intervention that might take place across our network, in case we are forced to not actively inform you of such intervention (via the Transparency Report).

In conclusion, Proxy.sh is the only VPN provider to guarantee the protection of your privacy. On one hand, we will always keep you updated when we need to undertake an intervention across our network. On the other, we will always keep you updated when a government or a local law enforcement authority needs to intervene on our network. These two aspects can only be provided with a triptych Transparency Report, Warrant Canary and Network Alerts.
