How to unblock Instagram with a VPN
It takes only three simple steps to safely access Instagram.
Why can’t you access Instagram?
The most likely reason why you can’t access Instagram is that the network or internet service provider (ISP) at your current location is blocking you. This is usually accomplished by instructing the system to deny any connection to the servers of blocklisted apps such as Instagram.
Where is Instagram blocked?
Schools, universities, and offices have frequently blocked Instagram in the past to increase productivity — in these environments, people are expected to focus on their tasks and stay away from distractions like social media platforms. Outside of school and company networks, Instagram may be banned by law on political, cultural, or even religious grounds due to the nature of the content that can be posted on the platform.
How does an Instagram VPN work?
An Instagram VPN (virtual private network) works by creating a secure encrypted “tunnel” for your online traffic. Data that passes through this tunnel is shielded from anyone monitoring your connection — including your ISP or school network administrator.
