I was active on Twitter and other social media to oppose our totalitarian government. Back then, I never felt safe when I was online, but I had to do what I had to do <...> I trusted your service in hiding my footprint and not letting anyone find out my true identity. You gave me more courage to express my voice freely. I wanted you to know that what I did might have been a small step towards freedom, but you helped me and what you did matters.
