Authoritarian societies control the way their subjects use digital means, looking at any communication, if not directly spying any device. They would be able to see somebody accessing such a service, marking the person as suspicious and worth of being more tightly controlled. It's only in our 'free' countries that such systems can be accessed with few controls if any. I think these service are mostly used to launder money or to evade tax, are nefarious and more a threat than a good thing.
