NordVPN also offers a solution to bypass the social media ban restrictions in Uganda. Using a VPN service can help you access WhatsApp, Youtube, Twitter and the other websites that might be blocked in the future.

How to unblock Twitter and other sites

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A VPN service links users computer to a server in a country of their choice via encrypted tunnel – for example, a person can appear to be in the U.S., while they actually are in Uganda, and vice versa, simply by choosing a different VPN server location. A VPN service like NordVPN would allow you to substitute your current IP address with the IP address of ..say Sweden so you can connect to Twitter as if you were in Sweden.

A VPN encrypts your data through a secure tunnel before accessing the internet – this protects any sensitive information about your location by hiding your IP address.

NordVPN does not keep any logs and uses very powerful encryption to route your online data. This way you can protect yourself from data tracking or cyber attacks and maintain your anonymity on the internet whether you’re using a PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet, gaming consoles or any other device that requires an internet connection.
