Let’s take a look at its new owner. Kape used to be known as Crossrider until it changed its name in 2018 to move away from its advert-slinging past and reinvent itself as a cybersecurity outfit. Crossrider was founded in 2011, and in 2012, billionaire Teddy Sagi took control of it for $37m.
In 2015, a joint study by the University of California, Berkeley and Google identified Crossrider as a major affiliate of ad injectors, including SuperFish that you may remember from the laptop adware fiasco.
So tldr the company that injected adware in Lenovo laptops has purchased Express VPN. Stop using Express VPN. I’m a Windscribe user myself.
