Majority of Popular Mobile-Only VPNs Are Run by Chinese Nationals or Located in China

While the current VPN market appears to be filled with numerous products by various companies, recent research that took a closer look into the market revealed very unexpected results. At least 97 VPN products are owned or operated by only 23 companies, according to privacy and security research firm VPNpro. Moreover, it was further discovered that most of the popular mobile-only VPNs are Chinese (run by Chinese nationals or actually located in China). "This means user data is likely open to Chinese authorities, confirming US Senators' fears of American data falling into Chinese or Russian hands," writes VPNpro's Jan Youngren.
