General questions

Hello admins and community,

I am thinking about using AirVPN. I have a few questions.

First of all, English is not my natural speaking language. I apologize for any spelling mistakes.

It is important to me to use a non log VPN. I am not interested in committing any crimes. Nevertheless, it cannot be ruled out that other AirVPN users do exactly that. I have read through all the terms of service and so on. Unfortunately, I can no longer find the passages, but something was said about AirVPN recording servers in the event of violations, i.e. saving data if necessary. Have I understood this correctly or have I misunderstood?

I don't want my data to be logged just because a user thought he had to screw up.

How does AirVPN deal with such requests? Is it actually logged then? What happens with such requests from authorities?

There is also a lot of monitoring. User data transfer etc. I find this somewhat critical because something is logged. How is this implemented so that no user activity is recorded?

Is it allowed to use AirVPN with a router and thus bypass the device limit?

I think the use of ram disks is very good. But what if something is plugged into the server? E.g. USB sticks, cables, keyboards or similar? Are the servers protected against such "attacks"? Ram disks help against taking the servers but not against someone sitting down at the server and looking in.


I think I have asked all the important questions. Thank you very much and sorry for the long text.

With kind regards

Hello!

The other questions are answered in the ToS, specification page and Privacy Notice, therefore we invite you to read those documents, further clarifications may come from the community or from us if necessary:
https://airvpn.org/tos The Terms of Service
https://airvpn.org/privacy The privacy notice and terms, scroll down for additional safety measures according to best practices as well as GDPR prescriptions
https://airvpn.org/specs Specs overview

In AirVPN, the problem you mention is not related to USB specifically, because USB support is disabled on the kernel of our servers and any reboot to make the server re-start to run a different kernel in order to plug secretly USB devices will cause the server to be rejected by the infrastructure, but adversaries don't need to plug in USB peripherals. A more effective attack comes from outside the server and a defense against this attack is not possible on the server itself (simply because the adversary does not interfere with or touch the server), it must come from a pro-active action by the user.

Kind regards
