The Investigatory Powers Act (also known as the Snoopers’ Charter) gave the UK government the power to demand information about your browsing activity from your ISP. Using a VPN is the best way to combat this governmental overreach, though you should ensure any VPN you use is not based in the UK and also has a strict no-logs policy. Proton VPN is based in Switzerland, meaning we are protected by strong Swiss privacy laws. We also don’t keep any logs on your browsing activity.
