ProXPN is declaring a fight against governments who continue to command service providers to aid in unpopular surveillance programs.

In a report on the 13th of August 2013 by Today (, the operator of the popular ‘Line’ instant messaging app has been asked by the Thai police to provide them with access to record of online chats. As reported, this has raised alarm about intrusive surveillance despite the promised target audience being suspected criminals.

The report went further to share Thailand’s Technology Crime Suppression Division chief Police Maj. Gen Pisit Paoin response, where he said that the police wanted to review the data of users they suspect are involved in crimes, including those who make statements against the Thai monarchy etc.

According to the report, this move has raised concerns about violations of privacy and free speech.

The ProXPN team had this to say, "We are appalled by the moves that the Thai government is making that will most likely suppress its people’s online freedoms even further. We are making our stand known that we will help give the Thai people the freedoms they deserve online by providing them with a platform where they can browse unrestricted and with peace of mind."

ProXPN offers users a remedy from any constraints created by regulatory measures, ensuring that all data shared between the ProXPN server and the user is encrypted, and once the data ventures past the server and is in the public site domain, the users IP is hidden. This unencrypted void between the ProXPN server and the public site is where ProXPN’s other service steps in and secures the data to ensure it is hidden from the public eye at all times.
