World Russia wants to cut itself off from the global internet. Here’s what that really means. -

If they fail to comply, their services will be blocked
Because governments are already just so good at blocking websites already

At the same time, the new requirements don’t affect the main purpose of Kaspersky Secure Connection which protects user privacy and ensures confidentiality and protection against data interception
Keep saying that when some 14 year old cracks the russian government's database and leaks every user's logs.

Tbh what government isn't total shit nowadays? It's just a matter of how deep in the septic tank they are

If russkies really want a way around the censors they'll figure shit out. I'm surprised they didn't go after ProtonVPN.

2 VPNs, atleast, are already blocked by Hulu and some sites I regular. It's not like anything will change.

I like Null's rejection against new zealand better. I suppose it's more dangerous to make an enemy out of russia though.

I don't really trust VPNs, no matter where. They're just too easy a target for an "ambitious" government and you can't really know the people behind them. The difference here is, that russian laws are in a way where this is actually legal so it's all out in the open. They love big displays of force over there, as their government is laughably ineffectual otherwise. But you cannot look at me with a straight face and tell me that even the US government would be above accessing VPNs the "extra-legal" way? Remember the drama around hushmail? Maybe not for censorship. That being said, if you just pirate some TV shows you probably don't have to care.

Don't laugh too much about the "backwards" Russian government. Your government would like to just censor you as much and spy on you as much. (this is universal, so doesn't really matter where you are) Maybe they do, maybe they're just more subtle about it.

I don't doubt that major governments have some kind of access to VPN users either through their systems themselves or some kind of deal or infiltration of the company, but I think that's probably only something you have to worry about if you are doing something horrendous like planning a terrorist attack or leading some kind of cartel or pedophile ring. Nobody is gonna care enough to blow an operation like that or bother to sift through the data if you use a VPN to watch porn in a place like England, access 8chan in counties that ban it, or pirate tv shows, movies and games. It seems like a good precaution for minor stuff like that as well as from independent actors and scammers online.

This was sure to come. I thought it would be the FBI or DOJ first though.
