    A survey has revealed that NSA spying revelations and anti-piracy laws are the most-cited reasons among new VPN users when they sign up for an account. The findings are published by IVPN, who further note that after the PRISM revelations the company witnessed a 56% increase in sign-ups.

    IVPN is not the only provider to have spotted this trend, other companies have also noticed a similar surge in subscribers recently.
