A VPN is a service that allows users to bypass internet restrictions imposed in a country.
After the arrest of Imran Khan, the social media blockade continues across Pakistan and many internet users are asking for VPN.
Because they usually look like a hat that protects you from others, a private network or VPN is a virtual hat that hides your location from Internet users. But the authorities do not know how to use the Internet.
Also, with the help of VPN, users pretend to be in another country while sitting in the country. For example, you are in the UK, but you can pretend to be in the UK, Belgium or Canada with the help of a VPN.
In this way, you can cross the borders of the country.
For example, Twitter and Facebook are officially banned in Pakistan, but if a user uses these social media through a VPN, they can bypass the ban.
Using a VPN in Pakistan requires a registered office with the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority and using an uninitiated VPN is illegal.
Many companies around the world offer VPN services that users can use for free or for a fee.
One such user, Qamar Shahbaz, told Urdu Independent that he has been using the VPN service for almost six years.
Qamar said: I am the virtual assistant of many American brands on Amazon. “I need an app for my work that can only be used in the United States.”
It states, “The VPN temporarily makes my computer’s location appear in the United States, allowing me to work on this program.”
Qamar also said that they charge VPN fees, but there are many VPNs that are free to use. However, the VPN included in the free service can only be used for limited hours.
For example, another benefit of a VPN is that some Netflix shows can be viewed in the US, but not in the UK.
With a VPN, you can watch the show as if you were in the US.
