Pirate Bay has now added its own offering to the various anonymity services that have previously existed on the market. More than 100,000 people have already signed up for the new service.
“Right now, we have 113,000 who have joined the queue,” Peter Sunde, Pirate Bay spokesperson, told TT.
He estimates that around 80 percent are Swedes.
Since Pirate Bay doesn't save any login credentials, there is no information to share with public authorities. With the new service, users connect to the Internet via a virtual private network (VPN), which conceals their personal IP addresses.
