How a VPN for Wikileaks works

A VPN (short for “virtual private network”) is a cybersecurity tool that encrypts your online traffic and changes your virtual location. By shielding your online activity from prying eyes, you can access websites such as WikiLeaks with more security and privacy.

Why is WikiLeaks blocked in some countries?

In several countries, governments have blocked WikiLeaks to restrict public access to the leaked documents hosted on the site. In the past, WikiLeaks has disclosed sensitive information that could compromise confidential high-level discourse or privileged diplomatic communications. As a result, these governments have pressured ISPs to block online traffic to WikiLeaks on their networks.

If you can’t access WikiLeaks even if it’s not banned in your country, the issue may lie closer to home. Some places, including schools, universities, libraries, and offices, block access to WikiLeaks to minimize distractions. Certain networks may even block access to WikiLeaks to avoid controversy or demonstrate their own political values.
