29 March 2021 Current Affairs:ProtonVPN, a Swiss virtual private network service provider, criticized Apple for stopping application updates and violating human rights.

Highlights: 
♦ A virtual private network (VPN) provides you with online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public Internet connection. VPN will block your Internet Protocol (IP) address, so your online operations are almost untraceable. Most importantly, the VPN service establishes a secure and encrypted connection.
♦ The Burmese military launched a coup (it was the third military coup in the country's history since it broke away from British rule in 1948). A state of emergency was imposed and the democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi was detained.
♦ Apple blocked Proton’s security updates on the same day that the United Nations recommended the Proton app to the people of Myanmar to report criminal evidence from the military. These updates include security enhancements to prevent account takeover attempts.
♦ The people of Myanmar turned to ProtonVPN to bypass the Internet blockade and search for accurate information. At that time, the army forcibly shut down the Internet to prevent evidence of wrongdoing.
♦ Earlier, during the Hong Kong protests, after receiving pressure from China, Apple censored its ProtonVPN and deleted the HKmap.live and Quartz apps from its App Store. Hong Kong residents use these apps to keep abreast of the protests.
