All set – Skype is now unblocked!
Skype typically gets blocked based on the user’s IP address. Each time you connect to the internet, your device is assigned an IP address. This address reveals your location, subjecting you to any content restrictions valid in the country you’re in.
A VPN lets you unblock Skype by hiding your IP address from the service. After you connect to a remote VPN server, it shows a different IP address to websites you want to access, thus bypassing your network’s restrictions. A VPN also secures your traffic data with strong encryption and shields your activities from others, letting you chat over Skype in privacy and security.
Some telecommunication companies, ISPs, and even governments restrict access to Skype and other VoiP (Voice over IP) services to eliminate competition and control mass communication. Since Skype offers free calls over the internet, it can seriously cut into the profits of telecommunication companies, many of which are either partly or wholly owned by the state.
Countries like China, Syria, Oman, Turkey, and Malaysia block Skype entirely. Skype is also partially restricted in some parts of Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Lastly, Skype may also be blocked on certain local networks, such as at universities and offices.
