Why 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?

Most workplaces, schools and universities block Instagram, as well as other social media outlets (such as Facebook and Twitter). The reason is that, in these environments, people are expected to focus on their tasks and stay away from distractions, such as social media.

In countries like China, Russia, Iran, Uganda, North Korea and Turkmenistan, Instagram is banned on political, cultural, or even religious grounds due to the nature of the content that can be posted on the platform. In general, governments want to avoid any form of mass communication that cannot be directly controlled, so they can prevent uprisings, protests or even the dissemination of information that goes against the ideology (or interest) of the official regime.
