Why you need an anti-censorship proxy
The internet was founded on the ideas of freedom and openness. Sadly, this isn’t always the case nowadays.
Due to varying political climates and power-wielding copyright holders, your online experience will often vary from country to country. The so called “splinternet” is becoming increasingly more noticeable among internet users.
But if countries like China or Russia came to your mind, you’ll be surprised to hear that they’re not the only ones striving for digital control.
Other less authoritarian countries also control your internet experience, by imposing blocks and bans through ISPs and other means.
Censorship is growing more prevalent
Whether you stopped to notice that popular torrent sites are being blocked across most countries or that social media bans are increasing common during times of political unrest, this is still cause for concern.
But these are just in your face examples. Censorship can also be more subtle.
ISP throttling is perhaps one of the most well-known cases, at least in the United States. DNS filtering can also be used to resolve domains hosting content that’s deemed as undesirable.
People are also becoming increasingly aware of search engine manipulation and how it deters users from certain subjects or website. In other case news outlets can end up completely blocked, if they touch on controversial political subjects.
Geo-restrictions are also a widely spread phenomenon, that is affecting entertainment enthusiasts worldwide.
But this can all be a thing of the past with a reliable anti-censorship software.
How to use an anti-censorship software to your advantage
If you want to bypass all restrictions and regain your online freedom, a VPN software it just the tool you are looking for. A VPN – short for virtual private network - reroutes your entire internet traffic through VPN servers with no imposed restrictions. This process also hides your IP address and adds a layer of anonymity to your outgoing internet traffic.
On top of that, your entire connection is encrypted. That means no one can track your online activity. CyberGhost VPN was designed with anti-censorship in mind and has dedicated apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV & Fire Stick, Android TV, Linux and even routers.
Now you can regain your online freedom with just one click!
What’s more, just one CyberGhost VPN subscription lets you secure up to 7 devices at the same time

The only thing you can do to escape internet censorship is to use a VPN. By rerouting your traffic through a server located in a country where censorship does not exist, you will be able to enjoy everything the internet has to offer no matter where you are located.
Governments employ internet censorship tactics when those in power want to suppress both the amount and the type of information their citizens can access. Countries like Russia, China, North Korea, Turkey, or Belarus are well-known for restricting access to social media platforms, western news outlets, and even streaming platforms.
Censorship also takes place in companies or schools – to allegedly improve productivity and attention span by decreasing the time employees or students spend on the internet.
In both cases, the tool for escaping these restrictions is the same - a virtual private network.
A VPN can stop internet censorship by virtually switching its users' geographical location. Choose a VPN server in a country that enjoys full access to the internet. You will be assigned an IP address of that country and your ISP won’t be able to see what you are doing. As a result, you can bypass the traffic filters that restrict access to certain websites, apps, or games, and you'll be able to enjoy everything the internet has to offer.
DPI, or deep packet inspection, is a type of network data filtering. This process can locate, detect, categorize, block, or reroute data packets that contain specific codes or data payloads. The process is both good and bad. It can prevent worms, spyware, or viruses from entering a corporate network, but it can also be used for eavesdropping and censorship.
IP blocking on the other hand is the banning of outside connections for certain IP addresses. If a website decides to ban your IP address, you will no longer be able to access it - unless you use a VPN to help change it.
