Access to websites gets blocked based on the user’s IP address. When you connect to the internet, you are assigned the general IP address of your network, which may come with certain restrictions imposed by policies or local laws. After all, networks in a particular country must comply with local legislation, and an IP address identifies you as being from that country.
A VPN unblocks sites by routing all your internet traffic through an encrypted tunnel, hiding your IP address in the process. This lets you bypass network restrictions and ensures that no one can either monitor or censor your online traffic.
It is quite common for companies and universities to deny access to social media in an effort to reduce distractions. This means that VKontakte, along with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, is often blocked on such networks. In addition, VK may be temporarily or permanently blocked in certain countries due to its Russian roots.
