Why Go for VPN in Russia?

Russian censorship of the internet may not be offical but don’t be fooled into thinking that it does not exist. Ask anyone who has been there and you will discover that some websites just cannot be accessed because they have  been blocked and restricted. A lot of internet users have tried a variety of tools to get pass the restriction to no avail.

How to get pass the block

One of the best ways to get pass these restrictions is through the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that does not only allow you access to restricted content but also mask your IP address and provide encryption for your private and confidential informaiton.

With a VPN, you can access restricted websites in Russia without worrying about getting intercepted by the government because your IP and thus your identity is not revealed to them. VPN is famous for the anonymity it provides its users and this is essentila if you want to maintain your privacy online. Hackers are all around you but no matter how good they are, they will have a hard time accessing sensitive data from your files when you have a VPN.

Choosing a trusted provider

However, the secret to getting the online security you need is in choosing the most efficient and trusted VPN provider. It is not enough that your VPN company guarantees your protection from third parties online but it should also guarantee your privacy from the VPN provider’s logs and records. After all, if they keep track and log information on your internet habits then it makes you vulnerable to internet hackers.

Since Russia has blocked some websites considered by the government as restricted for one reason or another, you can be sure that they will be eavesdropping on users who manage who browse these sites. But don’t worry because with a masked IP address, they won’t be able to get hold of your identity.

VPN providers usually have servers that are located in a secure and most often fistant location. These servers are protected by protocols that are so secure you need a superhero to expose them. But then again, it will all depend on the reliability and reputation of your VPN provider so make sure you choose one you can trust.

With a different IP address, you will be able to access restricted websites, watch television or even movies online. Russia is known to be selective when it comes to the sites it allows its citizens to view both for social and political reasons. Security problems are becoming so complicated you cannot blame these governments for being so paranoid.

Knowing that Russia is keen on implementing strategies that promote political messages that favor the ruling administration, it would be easy to conclude that their internet experts will indeed block some sites that promote a different point of view. It even went as far as pressuring Sweden in 2006 and Russia in 2004 to close down the Kavkaz Cente, a website that shows content that are adverse to Russia’s interest.

While we recommend that you follow Russian rules to keep away from trouble, nothing beats getting a VPN service provider to help you get your cake and eat it too.
