How does a VPN for WhatsApp work?

By encrypting your connection, a VPN (virtual private network) masks your IP address, and keeps your online traffic away from cybercriminals and third parties monitoring your network, such as your internet service provider or school network administrator. This way, you can chat with and call friends and family on WhatsApp with peace of mind, wherever you are.

Why is WhatsApp blocked in some countries?

If you can’t access WhatsApp, your network administrator or internet service provider might be blocking the service.

WhatsApp is fully or partially banned in countries like China, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and Cuba. While their official reasons differ, almost all take issue with WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption.

Similarly, the app might be blocked in some places in your own country, like your local library, university, or office. Using a reliable VPN service on your devices, you can boost your online security and access WhatsApp from anywhere.
