How does a VPN for TikTok work?

A virtual private network (VPN) lets you safely access TikTok and other services by routing all of your online traffic through a secure VPN tunnel. Any data passing through this tunnel is protected by next-generation encryption, preventing others (including your internet service provider or ISP) from monitoring your online activities.

In addition, when you are connected to a VPN server, it acts as a proxy — in other words, TikTok and other services you use see the server’s IP address instead of your own. Shielding your real IP address hides your virtual location and lets you safely access local versions of e-shops, deals, and apps in other countries.

Finally, a VPN is simply a must if you like binging on TikTok over public Wi-Fi — like the free Wi-Fi hotspots in cafes, hotel rooms, and airports. Hackers frequently infiltrate unsecured Wi-Fi networks or set up similar-sounding honey traps to steal unencrypted user data. Use a VPN to encrypt your internet traffic, and snoopers won’t be able to tell what you’re doing — not even if you’re watching TikTok.

Why can’t I access TikTok?

Unless your TikTok account has been banned, the most likely reason why you can’t access TikTok is that it was blocked by your network or ISP. For example, the network administrator at your school, office, or university may limit access to social media to keep users focused on their tasks. In some parts of the world, TikTok may be inaccessible due to government restrictions or other legal reasons.
