ExpressVPN Keeps No Logs

English

ExpressVPN keeps no logs, keeping their promise to its clients.

As part of an investigation into a crime in Turkey, where Turkish authorities demanded user information from ExpressVPN, regarding assassination of Andrei Karlov, the Russian Ambassador to Turkey. They got zero information from ExpressVPN.

However the case, was regarding Andrei Karlov who was shot dead in Ankara by Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş, an off-duty Turkish police officer.

During the authorities investigation the police tried to find links to other people that may have been involved in the case, but they only found out that the policeman’s Gmail and Facebook, had been deleted via an ExpressVPN user account.

The authorities raided the datacenter in Turkey and seized the server, through which the connection went, but after an inspection of the server, it yielded in no useful information.

Because the server gave them zero information, the Turkish authorities reached out directly to ExpressVPN, asking for logs.

ExpressVPN keeps no logs, keeping their promise to its clients.

However first of all, the VPN provider is incorporated in the "British Virgin Islands" and only responds to local court orders, but the investigator was informed that they don’t store connection or activity logs.

“As we stated to Turkish authorities in January 2017, ExpressVPN does not and has never possessed any customer connection logs that would enable us to know which customer was using the specific IPs cited by the investigators,” ExpressVPN writes in a statement.

“Furthermore, we were unable to see which customers accessed Gmail or Facebook during the time in question, as we do not keep activity logs. We believe that the investigators’ seizure and inspection of the VPN server in question confirmed these points.”

After the seizure incident in Turkey, the company decided to no longer use physical servers in Turkey, but instead they provide a virtual location with Turkey-registered IP addresses pointing to VPN servers, hosted in the Netherlands.
