Summary: If you are looking for a no logs VPN provider, please refer to the Most Secure VPN providers article. If privacy is not your top priority and your goal is to only access certain restricted content, ZPN works well for this purpose.

ZPN is not to be trusted as a privacy company because they deliberately mislead their users to believe they do not log anything! While we do not condone DDoS attacks, Credit Card theft or similar illegal activities, and keeping connection logs is not inherently an unacceptable stance for a VPN company, trying to conceal logging speaks volumes about the company. Now let’s take a closer look at their Privacy Policy and our correspondence with their support.

The following are excerpts of the Privacy Policy that clearly indicate that ZPN.im not only keeps no user info (hence has nothing to hand over to authorities), but is also willing to “immediately notify their customers and do everything in their power to move jurisdictions” should they be forced to start logging:

zpn-privacy-2

This is very nice of them, now let’s consider a few more excerpts along with a reply we received from their support:

ZPN.im Privacy Policy

But wait, didn’t they just tell us they don’t log anything at all and would never comply when forced to log? If that was the case, how can they possibly cooperate with authorities or selectively terminate specific user accounts? For this to be possible they must log… And since they likely log (or turn logs on/off as they see fit), what kind of info do they store? Just real IP addresses and server connection times, or maybe full browsing history too?

The following is what we received when we asked them to clarify their logging:
zpn-im-privacy-policy-4

However, we cannot dismiss ZPN as a good VPN provider that can be used to access geo-restricted content on Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services since their VPN service is fast and reliable. ZPN can also be used to bypass local internet restrictions such as restricted access to Snapchat, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber, Line, Tango, Skype, KakaoTalk, WeChat in the Middle East. Considering that ZPN uses OpenVPN protocol with AES-256 encryption, it does a good job protecting their users from hackers and other online threats on public Wi-Fi networks.

ZPN also offers 10GB/mo free access to theirVPN servers. Overall, if not for their Privacy Policy, ZPN VPN would certainly make a good impression. Thus, for users who don’t care about logging and don’t plan on doing anything illegal, ZPN could be a contender. But they are most certainly not a recommended choice for privacy oriented users who value their anonymity above all.
