Social Media & VOIP Blocked in Middle East

Living in a country such as the UAE can be great place to be an expat, high tax free wages and year round sunshine. There are however some catches to living in the region, one of them being online restrictions.

Most expats (now even not the most tech savvy) are subscribing to VPN services to ‘free up’ restrictions on their iPad, iPhones, Androids and laptops. Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Instagram, YouTube and more are all routinely blocked in all Asian countries much to the annoyance of millions. Having your device connected to a VPN not only unblocks all of these but also gives you an encrypted and private Internet connection, so providers such as Etisalat cannot see what you are looking at. Even for those wanting to use popular apps such as Tinder on their smart phone can now do so in the UAE, KSA and beyond if they simply switch on a VPN connection in their settings first.
