What to do if Your VPN is Banned

What to do if Your VPN is Banned

One thing that VPNs (virtual private networks) do is to maintain user security and anonymity. But these measures designed to keep you safe and to protect your privacy is itself blocked? VPN blocking is widespread and it can cause a whole lot of hassle.

Note that we’re not talking about some annoying occasional glitch here. Websites, online services and some internet service providers, as well as governments, actively set up detection systems that identify VPN traffic and then blocks it. VPN blocking can keep you from accessing content from other countries or, if you’re using public Wi-Fi, from browsing safely and anonymously when on the move.

Here’s the good news: with a bit of knowledge and if you can find a suitable VPN service, you can retain your privacy and security and still get past these VPN blocks. Here’s how to deal with the growing problem of VPN blocking.

Here are some VPNs that will help you stay undetectable

Different VPNs work in slightly different ways, and some of them have systems that will allow you to get past VPN blocks.

  • • NordVPN. This is a service that offers obfuscated VPN servers, unlimited opportunities to change servers and security measures that are top of the range. This is our top pick if you’re having VPN blocking problems.
  • • Express VPN. This service has great security protocols and advanced privacy features, as well as excellent speeds. This will allow you to elude surveillance and streaming site proxies so you stay undetected.
  • • Surfshark. This is another service with strong security and privacy. There aren’t many services that offer such robust features. It also allows unlimited connections, so that no matter which of your devices you’re using, you can stay undetected and get past those blocks.

We have had several IT companies before Quikteks so we definitely can give an honest opinion. We have experienced a very high quality of care and expertise as well as a partnership approach. We recently moved to a new location and they were with us every step of the way. The owner, Nick Tammaro, personally came to sit in on meetings with the GC to make sure everything on the IT side was going right. He went out of his way to supply us with data techs to rewire a few temp offices so we had no down time. His staff is always available and work tirelessly to resolve issues as well as being proactive to reduce unforeseen problems. I would highly recommend them.
