NordVPN Reportedly Passes Third Independent No-Logs Audit
NordVPN which is one of the best VPNs just recently finished a third-party audit of its no-log claims, the company on Tuesday revealed. The audit was carried out by Deloitte which is one of the big four auditing companies between November 21 and December 10, 2022, which then confirmed in its Independent Reasonable Assurance Report that NordVPN did not store or record logs of user activity during the audit time.
What NordVPN Has To Say about the Recent Development
If a VPN provider does not collect or even store the logs of its user’s activity, the provider would not be able to furnish any type of data should it be requested for by the authorities. And although a VPN’s no-logs claim can never be verified fully with 100% certainty, a third-party audit can offer substantial assurance that the VPN provides claims are true and that it is a key feature in providing transparency to customers.
Deloitte Inspected the Server Configuration and Deployment Processes
And as part of its assessment of the no-log claims by NordVPN, Deloitte inspected the server configuration and deployment processes of NordVPN’s standard VPN, double VPN, obfuscated, Onion Over VPN, and P2P servers. As of December 10, 2022, Deloitte found out that “the NordVPN service is implemented as described.”
“Our users need to know that they can trust us. When people use a VPN service, they need to know that it won’t monitor their data,” Vykintas Maknickas, product strategist at NordVPN said. “They need to have confidence in the security and effectiveness of its features and infrastructure. That’s what our audit process is all about.”
The no-log claims by NordVPN prior to this were audited and confirmed by PwC back in 2018 and 2020.
