About PrivacyAffairs

Welcome to PrivacyAffairs.com – an online privacy guide created to help you choose the best VPN, avoid internet surveillance, stay safe online, and stream your favorite shows regardless of your location.

Who we are

We are a small collection of cyber-security professionals, tech journalists, and privacy advocates from the Old Guard of internet users who grew up in a time when privacy was still a reasonable expectation and the internet was largely democratic.

We believe in liberating the internet from the state actors that control so many aspects of our lives and further erode our privacy on a daily basis.

Our mission is to cut through the noise of dishonest and spammy review sites and provide objective, highly detailed, accurate and, most importantly, truthful and unbiased resources for anyone looking to learn about online privacy and protecting their data.

Why we made PrivacyAffairs

There are too many review sites these days that simply push people to buy the product that will bring the highest profits to the website owners, regardless of the quality of the product.

It’s not just the tech industry, but everywhere you look. Google is absolutely filled with fake experts touting their recommendations.

When this happens with online privacy and cyber-security sites, we have a problem.

An honest review site

Many of our readers want to access more Netflix content or unblock SoundCloud from school, so providing inaccurate information could end up costing people money.

Since all of our recommended VPNs are from legit companies with solid money-back guarantees, the cost would be an inconvenience for those people – unacceptable in our book, but not life-threatening.

However, we also have readers who rely on us to provide honest information so they can access the internet in safety from countries where their freedom may be at risk if they are not sufficiently protected. There are countless countries in which journalists risk their lives to expose corruption, inequality, and persecution so the world knows the truth.

We guarantee that all the information we publish is, to the best of our knowledge, factual, accurate, and unbiased.

Unbiased recommendations

As an organisation we strongly believe in standing up for the rights of the unprotected so we’ve made it our number one priority to ensure all the information we provide is up-to-date, reliable, and trustworthy.

We perform rigorous testing on all the VPNs we review, and draw on the latest cyber-security news, along with our team’s wealth of experience, to continuously improve our testing criteria to give our readers the most thorough and accurate advice possible.
