How SurfEasy VPN helps you unblock websites and apps

In the last year or so, we’ve seen a number of bans on particular websites and apps in various countries around the world. Some of these bans have been removed and some haven’t, but all of them were an affront to online freedom.

At SurfEasy, we’re proud to provide a product that helps to keep the internet free and accessible to all – as it is meant to be.

But how do we do it?

SurfEasy VPN hides your IP address, making it impossible for websites to see where you are located. In addition, we allow you to “borrow” an IP address from a different country, making it appear to the internet as if you are located in that country instead. And we don’t just have a couple of regions to choose from – we have 13 different countries available.

If social media sites like Facebook are blocked in your country, you can simply turn on SurfEasy VPN, select a different region, and access the blocked site as if you were in that part of the world. Your connection is fully protected by our bank-grade encryption and you’ll appear to be connecting from a different country, meaning that you can use your social media accounts without any problems.

If services like WhatsApp are banned, simply load up SurfEasy VPN on your mobile device and click onto a different region. Easy as pie.

Of course, our encryption also means that you can’t be tracked or followed online, and it keeps your financial, personal and private information safe and secure – wherever you are in the world.

We even offer you a free trial to check that our VPN is right for you. Get started today at
