ExpressVPN Removes Servers in India After Refusing to Comply with Government OrderDavid Chung
Virtual Private Network (VPN) provider ExpressVPN on Thursday announced that it’s removing Indian-based VPN servers in response to a new cybersecurity directive issued by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In).
“Rest assured, our users will still be able to connect to VPN servers that will give them Indian IP addresses and allow them to access the internet as if they were located in India,” the company said. “These ‘virtual’ India servers will instead be physically located in Singapore and the U.K.”
