IT News Nigeria:

The Association of Licensed Telecommunication Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) has also received a directive from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to suspend access to Twitter in the country.

One could bypass Twitter ban in Nigeria through the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN).

What is VPN

According to KASPERSKY, VPN describes the opportunity to establish a protected network connection when using public networks. VPNs encrypt your internet traffic and disguise your online identity. This makes it more difficult for third parties to track your activities online and steal data. The encryption takes place in real time

How Does It Work?

A VPN hides your IP address by letting the network redirect it through a specially configured remote server run by a VPN host. This means that if you surf online with a VPN, the VPN server becomes the source of your data. This means your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and other third parties cannot see which websites you visit or what data you send and receive online. A VPN works like a filter that turns all your data into “gibberish”. Even if someone were to get their hands on your data, it would be useless.

How to install a VPN connection on your smartphone

As already mentioned, there are also VPN connections for Android smartphones and iPhones. Fortunately, smartphone VPN services are easy to use and generally include the following:

  • The installation process usually only downloads one app from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store. Although free VPN providers exist, it’s wise to choose a professional provider when it comes to security.
  • The setup is extremely user-friendly, as the default settings are already mostly designed for the average smartphone user. Simply log in with your account. Most apps will then guide you through the key functions of the VPN services.
  • Switching on the VPN literally works like a light switch for many VPN apps. You will probably find the option directly on the home screen.
  • Server switching is usually done manually if you want to fake your location. Simply select the desired country from the offer.
  • Advanced setup is available for users requiring a higher degree of data protection. Depending on your VPN, you can also select other protocols for your encryption method. Diagnostics and other functions may also be available in your app. Before you subscribe, learn about these features to find the right VPN for your needs.
  • In order to surf the internet safely from now on, all you have to do is first activate the VPN connection through the app.
