Should I use a VPN if I live in the UK?
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. ProtonVPN is based in Switzerland, meaning we are protected by strong Swiss privacy laws. We also don’t keep any logs on your browsing activity.
