First Dutch VPN, GOOSE, offers online privacy and protects against internet crime
Young entrepreneur from Rotterdam develops VPN with 1 million investment money
Rotterdam, February 15th, 2017 – Start-up GOOSE is the first Dutch VPN. The company offers everyday, non-technical internet users online privacy, protection against hackers and protection against misuse of data. The app is available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. The in Rotterdam-based start-up was founded by the 26-year-old internet entrepreneur Joeri van de Watering. The investment of € 1 million for the development of the VPN comes from investment company Treasure Beheer.
Prevent online abuse
Consumer data is being misused more and more. Van de Watering: “The media and the Government talks a lot about the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to use the Internet in a safe manner. However, in my search for Vpn services, I could not find a single Dutch provider and as an entrepreneur I myself like to do business with a supplier from Netherlands. Also, most foreign Vpn services focus more on the advanced internet user who has a lot of technical knowledge. The software is often tricky to install and there is no customer service or hardly any accessible customer service at all. Because of this, I got the idea to develop a simple, easy-to-use VPN for the everyday internet user.”
Many people are also choosing for VPN because of privacy reasons. “When you visit a website, your IP address is stored, and a profile is being created based on your online behavior. If you use a VPN like GOOSE, which does not save any logging data, you avoid this. Also, keep downloading of content in mind. In the Netherlands, downloading and streaming copyrighted material is illegal. The film industry is working hard to fine private users who are downloading illegal content just like in Germany and Denmark. If you use a good VPN service, then no one can trace the downloaded material to you. A VPN also ensures that you can lift all geographical blockings, so that you can watch your favorite Dutch tv shows while you’re on vacation and safely can log in to any public Wi-Fi network without others being able to watch you, hack you or steal your data,” de Watering says.
A subscription is free for the first month at GOOSE. After that, we charge € 2.99 per month for 50 GB of data traffic. According to Van de Watering, that’s more than enough for the average internet user. There is also a family subscription with unlimited data transfer for € 6.99. GOOSE is currently offering 22 geographic locations. Almost weekly you will find updates to even more improve the VPN and to expand geographically.
