“This site can’t be reached”
Does that line seem a bit too familiar? You may think that it’s a problem with your internet connection or the website’s servers, but it might not always be the case.
Restricted websites are a thing and they’re too commonplace not to be ignored. This often happens based on your country and trying to undo it without a VPN is quite difficult. Some examples include Belgium that implemented an anti-privacy law forcing ISPs to restrict torrent sites.
Commonly blocked websites include:
Social Media Sites
Do note that blocked websites are done by your local ISPs who have been pressured by the government.
So, how does a VPN help you access restricted websites? It uses its encryption and tunneling protocols to hide your identity. This includes your location.
