What Everybody Ought to Know About HideMyAss
So lets look at what happened. In September the FBI arrested Cody Kretsinger, a year old Phoenix resident and charged him with conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer, the Sony Pictures website. According to Reuters, Kretsinger pleaded guilty to both charges and could face up to 15 years in prison. LulzSec was considered a spinoff of Anonymous, a world-wide operating group of hacker-activists. Sony Pictures had to notify 37, users that their personal info might be at risk.

While I appreciate HMA addressing these issues openly rather than swiping them under the rug, the incident points to a serious flaw in the system.
Virtual Private Networks are used for many purposes, accessing blocked websites, accessing region restricted content, bypassing network filters, accessing Twitter, Facebook and Skype in countries that block such connections, or simpler applications like protecting your privacy when accessing a public Wifi spot and stopping your Internet Service Provider or ISP from snooping into your business. All VPN providers know this and, while their terms and conditions always state that their services are not to be used for illegal activities, they derive a portion of their revenue from users who signed up for just that purpose, something all VPN providers are aware of.
As a VPN service provider your main selling points are privacy, anonymity, presence as in how many countries you have IP addresses in and speed.

Many if not most or even all lease bandwidth and IP addresses from other providers, and abusive behaviors of their customers can easily jeopardize their business. Usually the term abusive behavior when used by a VPN service refers to bandwidth hogs, subscribers with much higher than average bandwidth usage, potentially slowing down the service for others. With speed being one of the main selling points it is easy to see why. My question then is this: If a provider does not log your IP address and does not log your activity, how would they be able to investigate anything?
While the LulzSec case may seem extreme and it is easy to think: They decide what they consider illegal and enlist your ISP to notify you, and if necessary, force you to watch educational videos or throttle your bandwidth. Maybe a no-log VPN is a good idea after all? Reuters reports that a Los Angeles judge sentenced 25 year old Cody Kretsinger to a one year prison term, one year home detention and hours of community service. Kretsinger had pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer i.

For HMA the term is 30 days. Whenever you sign up for a VPN service you need to understand their terms. Those who offer a free trial by means of a money back guarantee often put limits on the data usage and time in which you can use the service. They can also limit the number of server locations. It helps to know the details. The only limit is data usage.
