Just Google it! For millions of people, this is synonymous with searching for something online. Google is the most popular search engine in the world, which unfortunately means that it has become the target of censorship in certain regions. Luckily, people have discovered that Google and VPNs work very well together.

How to unblock Google with a VPN?

Google, like all geo-restricted websites, is blocked by denying users access based on their IP address. When you connect to the internet, your IP shows the country you are currently in, which means you have to play by that country’s rules.

This is where a VPN can help. It allows you to connect to hundreds of remote VPN servers, changing your IP to make it appear as though you were connecting from somewhere else. This unblocks Google and helps you access other restricted websites.

What’s more, NordVPN encrypts all your online communications and keeps no logs of your activities. This means you can Google away in security and privacy — we can’t reveal your online activities to others because we don’t have anything to reveal!

Why can't I access Google Search?

Some countries heavily restrict the use of Google within their territory — China, for example, has banned it outright. Google itself limits access to some of its services in places like Crimea, Cuba, North Korea, Sudan, Iran, and Syria. In regions where Google is unwelcome, it is often blamed for exposing citizens to negative influence or dangerous ideas.
