The 5 Eyes is an alliance between the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, which agreed to bulk spy on their populations, and exchange data they collect with each other.
The 9 Eyes is an addition of 4 countries into the initial 5 Eyes: Denmark, Holland, France, and Norway. The 14 Eyes also includes Germany, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, and Spain. In addition, third party contributors include Israel, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea. Bottom line is, no VPN can be fully trusted if it’s located within the jurisdiction of any of these countries. The VPN services we recommend mostly reside in countries that have a strong history of upholding online privacy and striking down any infringement thereof. VPN services in any compromised country should be avoided if possible.
