How does a VPN for Wikipedia work?
A VPN (virtual private network) works by creating a safe encrypted “tunnel” for your online traffic. Data that passes through this tunnel is shielded from anyone monitoring your connection — including your internet service provider or school network administrator.

Why can’t I access Wikipedia?
If you can’t access Wikipedia, the platform might be blocked by your internet service provider or network administrator.
Countries such as China, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela have restricted Wikipedia access at different times. In these cases, Wikipedia was either caught up in countrywide internet censorship, or targeted specifically to block content considered offensive by those countries.
