Google it! This phrase has become a synonym for internet searching. For millions of people, Google is the place where you can find any information with just a few clicks. Unfortunately, access to Google Search might be restricted in certain regions.
Despite its popularity, Google has been affected by censorship and various restrictions in several countries, while in China the service is completely inaccessible. The reason for this is obviously political as Google is often blamed for bringing harmful Western influence.
Furthermore, Google itself restricts access to some of its services in certain countries and regions, including Crimea, Cuba, North Korea, Sudan, Iran and Syria. So if you try googling something while being there, chances are you won’t succeed.
Easy to guess – not being able to access your usual services can be quite irritating. Especially if you are lost or late and need to find directions to your hotel or look up for your exact location quickly. This is why many people choose VPN services for open and unrestricted internet access.
Google, like all the other 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 that any restrictions valid there are applied to you as well. What is more – this makes your private data an easy target for online snoopers and hackers.
This is where NordVPN will help. It allows you connecting to hundreds of remote VPN servers, making your IP look like you are physically located somewhere else. This helps you access restricted websites and keeps your private information safe at the same time.
Furthermore, NordVPN encrypts all your online communications and keeps no logs of your activities. That means we couldn’t provide your information to the authorities even if we were asked to.
It takes only 3 simple steps to experience the internet freedom.
