Kape said the acquisition of ExpressVPN will increase its paid subscriber base to over six million

That's a bit on the nose.

I wasn't aware Israel was on any of the N-eyes lists, can someone explain the issue?

Israel has never done anything wrong, especially to the Palestinians.

Any nation with any kind of power has abused that power at least in some fashion.

Is there any legitimate issue with respect to VPN operations from a company owned in Israel? As opposed to, say, Romania, Luxembourg, etc?

I'm not challenging that it might have issues, I just want to know if there's more behind it than DA J00Z

One of the main reasons for using a VPN is to prevent big companies from harvesting your data. If a bunch of jews are willing to pay top dollar to buy a VPN it isn't because they're committed to protecting privacy.

Don't worry, I am sure they will delete all the logs before the sale.....

I nearly got ExpressVPN, but went with surfshark. Kind of regret it since it's Linux support is lacking. If I ever jump ship from surfshark, I'd go with with PrivateInternetAccess, super cheap, good platform support, and has the option to pay anonymously with a gift card. There's others that also support gift card payment, or crypto.

Edit: It turns out PIA was bought by an investment company, never a good sign when management/owners change.

Prepaid Visa cards could also be a convenient anonymous option too (just buy it with cash).
