This page is updated whenever there is a notable new legal request.

This announcement was last updated on May 10, 2022.

To be counted here as a legal request for information, the request must come through official channels foreign or domestic (either a court order, directly from a government entity, or from legal/security departments of corporations). The only legally binding requests are ones from the courts of British Virgin Islands that we are legally obligated to comply with.

  • Under British Virgin Islands data protection regulations, we cannot legally comply with foreign requests that are not supported by a court order of British Virgin Islands.
  • Under British Virgin Islands law, TrueVPN is not obligated to save connection logs, and we adhere to a strict no-logs VPN policy.

Therefore, we are unable to comply with requests for user connection logs, even if they are legally binding. Furthermore, under law of British Virgin Islands, a Warrant Canary is not meaningful, because under law of British Virgin Islands, the target of a surveillance or data request must always be eventually notified, so they have the opportunity to contest the data request.

Notable Requests

A listing of notable legal requests is provided below

September 2021

  • A data request from a foreign country (Syria) was received by email, TrueVPN denied the request since it haven’t followed our user-data requests’s guidelines stated on our privacy policy, specifically that the request was sent directly to TrueVPN without a court order.

February 2022

  • A data request from a foreign country (UAE) was approved by the British Virgin Islands’s court system. However, as we do not have any customer IP information nor any logs related to customers, we could not provide the requested information and this was explained to the requesting party.

Transparency Notes

As of  March 16, 2022 – May 10, 2022, we:
