Welcome to That One Privacy Site! I intend for this site to be a resource to those who value their privacy, specifically those looking for information on VPNs (that isn’t disguised advertising). There are some other good resources that cover privacy based topics quite well, but when I started down the path of retaking my own privacy, there was very little reliable and detailed information with regard to VPNs.
I started researching data about VPN services for my own knowledge, then posted the information online in the hopes the Internet might find my work useful for themselves. Through the positive feedback and assistance those in the community offered, I’ve been able to take this step into compiling all of my related work in one location and moving away from the Google Spreadsheet that it was originally created on.
That One Privacy Site uses Matomo analytics. Matomo is a free and open source website analytics tool (as opposed to google analytics or something similar). It uses basic metadata such as truncated IP addresses (non-identifiable) to tally how many visits are from which countries and directed from which sites. It also tells me which features users like the most based on time spent on a given page. It respects “do not track” browser flags and is configured to not store anything identifiable.
