Due to the new rules for online traffic logging introduced by the Russian government, Private Internet Access abolishes its servers in this country.
According to the supplier, the Russian government has passed a new law that requires every supplier to log in Russian traffic for at least one year. He also said he believed that some of the Private Internet Access servers had been taken over by the Russian authorities without prior official or information.
Because Private Internet Access does not store any information about the user, generated traffic, and transmitted data, there is no danger that the Russian authorities may have access to confidential data.
As a result, PIA closes all of the servers it owns in Russia . In addition, for greater security, PIA updates its certificates and adds additional security features to its applications.
