Get on Social Media Anywhere
It seems like everyone is on Social Media these days. Facebook has hit over a billion users, QQ and WeChat aren’t far behind, and it feels like new social sites are popping up every day.

Whether you’re live in or are traveling to a country that restricts Social Media, it’s hard to feel like you’re being kept out of the loop, especially since more and more people are using Social Media almost exclusively to connect with their friends and family,
Getting Around Social Media Restrictions
Thankfully, there’s a way to get around many of these restrictions: use a VPN.
A VPN routes your Internet traffic through a different server, which means that by connecting to a VPN based in the UK, for example, all of your traffic is marked with a UK IP address.
A VPN also encrypts the connection between your computer or mobile device and whatever website or service you want to connect to. When you use a VPN, no matter what info you’re looking at (bank statements, private messages, cat videos, etc.,), your connection will be much more private and secure, which is especially helpful in countries that restrict and monitor Internet activity.
What to Look for in a VPN
- SSL-secured network with 256-bit encryption
- Unlimited/very high bandwidth and speed
- Multiple global server locations
- Separate DNS lookup
