How does a VPN for Skype work?

VPN stands for “virtual private network.” By routing your traffic through a remote server, VPNs create an encrypted tunnel for your data, hide your IP address, and shield your online activity from snoopers on your network.

A reliable VPN service protects your connection even on public Wi-Fi. So using a VPN on your devices, you can chat over Skype with increased privacy and security wherever you are.

Why is Skype blocked in some countries?

If you can’t access Skype, the platform might be blocked by the internet service provider in your region or the network administrator in your school or workplace.

Several countries, including Bangladesh, China, Morocco, Uzbekistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia have blocked or restricted access to Skype and similar VoIP (Voice over IP) services. The reasons for these restrictions vary, from the services’ non-compliance with the country’s regulations to the governments’ desire to eliminate competition for local telecommunication operators.

Similarly, Skype may be blocked in certain local networks, such as universities and offices, to keep people focused on their tasks.

Some countries and institutions block access to Skype.
