Massive Surge in VPN Usage Observed in Australia

Massive Surge in VPN Usage Observed in Australia

After a new anti-piracy scheme was announced in Australia, and the news of copyright trolls turning their attention to the country emerged, VPN usage has surged to unprecedented levels.

The news emerged recently that the filmmakers of Dallas Buyers Club have obtained the court’s approval to pursue almost 5,000 alleged pirates in the country. At the same time, the largest ISPs of Australia also submitted their online anti-piracy code, estimating that they are going to send out 200,000 piracy notifications annually.

Under such conditions, many file-sharers decided to eliminate the threat of the potential legal action and have taken counter measures – normally, by hiding their IP-addresses to unlink their sharing activities from their ISP accounts.

After the initial announcement of the piracy notification mailouts, whish was made a month ago, interest in VPNs and other anonymizing services rapidly increased, but now the surge broke new records.

According to statistics compiled by Google trends, interest in anonymizing services has rocketed: searches for “VPN” have quadrupled in Australia in recent days and can be considered as a direct result of the anti-piracy threats from the entertainment industry. VPN providers confirm the surge – in both traffic and sales. For example, Trust.Zone VPN service observed over 300% increase in traffic from Australia, and recent trends demonstrate that the upsurge will remain.

More than a month ago, 16% of the Internet users participating in a survey said they already used VPNs or Tor to increase their privacy – most of them were people aged 18-34. Now the figures must be much higher.

pookiechops avatari signed up with ExpressVPN. fantastic customer support and reliable service. they are missing some features with their vpn but hopefully that will change soon. DO NOT use chrome, it leaks webrtc. stick to firefox or firefox based browsers.
agree with #5, make sure you check for DNS leaks. just google it.

micwood55 avatarI try the free trail of Trust Zone but it does leak, Express seems a little pricey?

brianic2012 avatarIf Your Browser is Leaking Your Real I.P address... Search Google "webrtc leak test"

Firefox Users Can Fix This Issue, See Below,

WebRTC implement STUN (Session Traversal Utilities for Nat), a protocol that allows to discover the public IP address. To disable it:

Mozilla Firefox: Type about:config in the address bar. Scroll down to media.peerconnection.enabled, double click to set it to false.

Google Chrome users: No solution exists yet.

All Done Now Your safe! ....Check Again And It Will Say "No leak"

Just Thought I'd Post This For People Who Don't Know.
