Over 500 million people use Instagram to share exceptional moments through pictures and videos. But hold the sparkle filter — it just so happens that Instagram is heavily restricted in certain regions and institutions. As a solution, most people use a VPN for Instagram access without restriction.

How to unblock Instagram with a VPN

Websites and services (like Instagram) are blocked by denying users access based on their IP address. When you connect to the internet, you are given the general IP address of the network, which comes with certain restrictions. In addition, many institutions redirect all DNS traffic over certain ports, requiring users to stick to predefined settings that carry additional restrictions.

When you use a VPN for Instagram, it hides your IP address, making it appear as though you were connecting from somewhere else. This lets you bypass your network’s restrictions and enjoy Instagram in full. Furthermore, a VPN encrypts all data traveling in and out of your system, keeping you safe from online snoops and letting you enjoy privacy on the internet.

Where is Instagram blocked?

No matter how much you want to share a snap of your crazy office prank, you’ll probably have a hard time doing it over the company network. Most workplaces and universities block Instagram along with other social media outlets (like Facebook and Twitter) to keep you focused on your tasks.

In certain regions Instagram is banned on political, cultural, or even religious grounds due to the nature of the content that can be posted on the platform.
