    So, I'm in the market for a VPN to use when I'm out and about on my laptop. I want something as private as possible. I was doing some research and AirVPN claims that they don't log any activity. To the best of the community's knowledge, is this true? I have no experience with this company so I don't want to hand over my entire browsing habits without more information...

    I haven't seen any reports of AirVPN logging.

    AirVPN don't log but they also make a big point of saying that they will protect your privacy. I've found AirVPN to be excellent. You may wish to read their statement -https://airvpn.org/topic/892-important-notice-about-security/

    I was impressed enough to start using AirVPN fully. Another thing worth mentioning is that even though they have some servers in America, the same protection is applied.

    I don't think anybody could tell you if AirVPN (or any other provider) truly doesn't log until somebody important uses it a la lulzsec. I remember when HideMyAss was being recommended all over.

    But you could log on via Tor if you want.

    That's funny :)

    HMA does accept LR, and they have an impressive set of exit servers.

    And they're very mainstream.

    Maybe I'll try that.

    Actually they are not an ISP but a VPN provider, thus I think the data retention law should not apply.
