Pure VPN shuts down its servers in India

Pure VPN, like other popular VPN companies, was not happy with India's new VPN policy. 

Pure VPN has pulled its servers out of India.

The company said that it has a strict no-log policy. The service does not collect any identifiable user information and therefore it cannot operate physical servers in a country where it will be forced to change its methods.

Pure VPN did clarify that the Indian users who’d like to use its services can still do so by connecting to its virtual servers, which provide the same level of privacy and security as its physical servers.

Under the new regulations, India requires VPN service providers, data centres, and cloud service providers to store customer information for five years, including names, email addresses, and IP addresses.

These directives have been viewed as problematic by VPN providers, who stated that it was against their operating policies to preserve or provide such logs to the government.

The government warned VPN service providers that they are free to leave India if they wish not to comply with these new rules.

In the past month, other popular VPN services like Surfshark, Nord, TunnelBear and Express have also shut down their servers in India because of the country’s new VPN policy.
