This Is Why You Need a VPN in Pakistan

22 June, 2018

If you think that Internet is something available for anyone in the world, you are wrong. Unfortunately, in the 21st century of mobile computing and extremely successful technological development, we still say that having the Internet is an ordinary thing for some people, and a luxury for others. It is not about the difficulties of providing people with the Internet from a technological point of view. It is censorship policy, which defines it in every country individually. Pakistan is one of those few countries in the world with an extremely severe Internet censorship policy.

Planning to visit Pakistan in the nearest future? Then, read the article to be fully aware of what you should expect from global net there, and what you might want to do to provide yourself with a stable access to your favorite online platforms. If you're interested, check for more info about VPNs in Pakistan particularly.

VPN, Pakistan, and Internet Access There

Internet in Pakistan is quite an interesting thing. Officially, you have access to the global network there. But in practice, most websites people all over the world use on a daily basis, are blocked. So, for a person from the US or any European country, having access to the Internet in Pakistan will be the same as not having that access at all, as thousands of websites are blocked within the whole country.

In general, Internet policy in Pakistan is very inconsistent. It is difficult to predict which websites will be blocked or unblocked tomorrow – Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube. So, if you're planning to visit Pakistan, get a VPN. Go to and choose a service, which fully corresponds to your requirements.

But having a VPN on the road is not only about free access to whatever content you need. It is also about keeping your personal and financial data safe. Like many other people, you probably store a lot of sensitive information on your laptop and smartphone too. Connecting to a public network outside your home via your devices without a VPN is dangerous for all of that data.


What a VPN does is creating an invisible tunnel to protect your traffic and information and pass it safely on the network. So, a virtual private network on the road in general, and in Pakistan specifically, is needed to:

●  Get access to any website and content you want.
●  To protect your personal data, which is stored on a laptop or smartphone.
●  To provide you with a full anonymity online by replacing your real IP address with the IP address of a server you're connecting to through a VPN.

To make a long story short, a VPN is something every tourist or businessman should have, especially while visiting countries with a strict Internet censorship policy such as Pakistan, Cuba, or China. So, go to the website and pick whatever service you like most, to be sure that you are not limited with your online activity while being abroad.
