Re: Not sure why they outed PureVPN

If they are headquartered in Hong Kong, I wonder why they helped the FBI? A subpoena from a US court would carry no weight, and since it looks like they market on "we don't log" handing over logs is a risky move even if they expected the FBI would keep their name out of it.

Like I said, now no VPN provider will ever willingly help the FBI. Maybe Apple would have been willing to quietly work behind the scenes to unlock that terrorist's phone if the FBI had been willing to keep it quiet, we can't know for sure either way, but whatever chance there may have been went out the window when they went straight to court and issued a public statement about it. Whoever is in charge of these decisions there is a real idiot (and sorry, you can't blame Trump for this, since the Apple thing was when Obama was still in office)
