ATTENTION: VPN-Provider Perfect Privacy is run by German/Austrian neonazis

Perfect Privacy

Last week marked the beginning of a court trial against three Austrian neonazi leaders in Vienna. The three defendants Gottfried Küssel, Christian Wilhelm Anderle and Felix Budin are accused of having being the administrators and/or editors of the former neonazi propaganda platform and an accompanying internet discussion board. During the course of the trial it was made public that two of the administrators and another employee of the VPN provider "Perfect Privacy" ( are members of the Austrian and German neonazi scene.

One of the defendants, Christian Wilhelm Anderle, said during questioning that he founded the "Working Group Perfect Privacy" together with a German citizen named Robert Marquardt (he is a neonazi from Hamburg, Germany - charges were filed against him too, but since he is a German citizen, he couldn't be held responsible in Austria so far and his trial was split from the rest). Perfect Privacy is one of the world's biggest commercial anonymous VPN providers. Besides Anderle and Marquardt, Anderle's partner Christina A also seems to be involved in running Perfect Privacy. Anderle was asked by the prosecutor why his partner successfully attempted to shutdown her running, screensaver-locked computer 1.5 hours after the the raid of their home by police had started. He stated that his partner was responsible for creating and administrating user accounts for Perfect Privacy and that she thus tried to protect this data.

According to the prosecution, a hosting account administered by Robert Marquardt was used for the registration and payment of up to 54 domains used for neonazi propaganda (amongst others, This hosting account was opened by the american right wing activist Hunter Wallace. The domain was also registered via dreamhost and administrated there, but under a different billing account. Standing in front of court, Anderle explained his access to the administration panel in the weeks before went online with his administrative work for Perfect Privacy - he stated he had needed to add newly bought Perfect Privacy VPN servers to Perfect Privacy's nameserver.

There is no clue regarding the owners' and administrators' political background on the website of Perfect Privacy. At the moment it is still unclear, whether other employees at Perfect Privacy are also members of the neonazi scene or even how many other employees there are. It is a fact though that two of the main administrators and founders are active in the neonazi movement and the partner of one of them is responsible for user administration.

The logical consequence of these facts can only be to avoid the VPN services of Perfect Privacy and spread the news about the political background of this company and the associated risks, in order to reach as many (potential or current) users and customers of Perfect Privacy. There are two alternative radical tech collectives ( and Autistici) that offer VPN services supported by donations - you can find more information about them on und Please don't forget to support these projects financially in order to enable them to continue their great work.
