WikiLeaks has exposed some of the most shocking secrets in internet history, making some powerful enemies in the process. Unfortunately for whistleblowers, this means that access to WikiLeaks is heavily restricted in some places. That is, unless you use a secure VPN.
Websites are usually blocked by denying access based on the user’s IP address. When you connect to the internet, you’re given an IP address, which indicates where you are and brings about all of the associated restrictions.
NordVPN lets you hide this IP address by connecting to a remote VPN server, thus unblocking restricted content. On top of that, NordVPN secures your internet traffic with advanced encryption, keeping snoops out of your business. We also keep no logs of your activities, meaning you can read WikiLeaks in full security and privacy.
Governments block users’ access to websites or internet services for a variety of reasons. Some pages are blocked to protect citizens (especially children) from obscene and harmful content, while others are geo-restricted due to copyright issues. In the case of WikiLeaks, the issue is the highly confidential nature of the leaked information.
WikiLeaks is often criticised by the authorities. Several US officials have said that it was “harming national security”, and some journalists have emphasized the lack of editorial discretion and analysis when publishing highly sensitive information. Not surprisingly, many governments, including Australia, the US, China, and Turkey, block access to WikiLeaks from time to time.
It takes only 3 simple steps to experience internet freedom.
