I recently discovered that other VPN companies are claiming that their VPNs can be connected using TOR-like Multi-hop. I want to know if the Multi-hop connection is really useful or just looks good? This text is translated by GOOGLE, so please read it as much as possible. thank you!
Does AirVPN have any plans to implement a multihop feature like that found in IVPN? This could help to improve privacy; even if a VPN provider does not store any logs, your ISP provider most certainly will keep a log of the IP addresses that you connect to along with a timestamp. With a multihop solution, your ISP can only see the first VPN server that you connect to, not the exit server, which I imagine would make it far more difficult to track. While AirVPN over TOR is an option, the speeds are unacceptable for most people.
So I saw a post about this incident a while ago, except it was based on a message board discussion that was in Dutch making hard for non-Dutch-speakers to follow. However, now a post in English has been written about it here: http://www.wipeyourdata.com/other-data-erasing/no-logs-earthvpn-user-arrested-after-police-finds-logs/ Basically a user of EarthVPN - which claims to be non-logging - was presented with logged evidence that he had made bomb threats against his school. EarthVPN claimed that this was because the datacenter had decided to start logging without them knowing. The author of this article suggests that a multi-hop VPN setup would make this IP transfer logging much less of a privacy concern. I posted a thread with related questions here but got no response: https://airvpn.org/topic/10638-entryexit-ip-addresses/ Is it possible that AirVPN servers could be vulnerable to this kind of datacenter logging, and if so does a multihop setup mitigate that risk? Is such a multihop setup already in place and to what extent?
