It emerged that the data of the users of VPN providers which is based on seven Hong Kong has been leaked online. The VPN services involve UFO VPN, FAST VPN, FREE VPN, SUPER VPN, FLASH VPN, SECURE VPN, and RABBIT VPN.
It is declared by these services that they have as many as 20 million users all around the world. As it was found by the researchers that the data of all of these 20 million users have been potentially leaked online, adding up to as much as 1.2TB worth of data.
The sever was exposed by a vpnMentor research team, which is guided by Noam Rotem, and they found the information of personally identified(PII) data that were collected by these VPN apps that have been leaked online. Fascinatingly adequate, these VPN services declare to offer “no-long” VPNs, which would propose they don’t keep records of any user activity on their network. somehow that looks like to be their big selling point.

Super VPN which is developed by HongKong-based Nownetmobi has a rating of 4.6 stars on the google play store and 4.9 stars on the Apple app store.
