VPN helps you to stay connected, unblocks VoIP apps
Updated on July 13, 2021: From now on, traffic filtering, malware protection, and suspicious DNS activity blocking are available as a part of the separate DNS Firewall app.
The Internet access in many parts of the world faces a number of restrictions. Among the resources and services being affected by censorship are VoIP apps, like Skype, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, Viber, Telegram, etc. These services are hardly accessible in the UAE, Jordan, North Korea, Oman, Kuwait, Turkey, Libya, Paraguay, Qatar, Venezuela, India, and many more. Uzbekistan recently joined this list too.
ISPs, governments and telecommunication companies in these countries can eavesdrop, monitor and even block voice calls and messages for their citizens. Some countries, like Brazil, South Korea or China, create their own VoIP services to stop a revenue drain.
There are also cases when the governments charge extra fees or impose taxes on using VoIP. For example, Panama was the first country to block VoIP. They now allow it but have a 12% tax on all calls. In Cuba, the Skype fee for calling across the country is $1.15 per minute.
An evident question arises: is there any chance to use the blocked services, if you are living in or travelling to any of the countries where VoIP is restricted? The answer to that question is yes. With the help of Virtual Private Network.
If you need to make calls to your business partners, friends or family, say from the UAE or China, use the VPN Unlimited service, and be sure your connection is reliable, protected and secured.
