How to connect to Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter After Mugabe Bans Them
Zimbabwe has shut down popular Instant Messenger, Whatsapp, and is trying hard to knock off Facebook and Twitter as well. This is light of massive anti-government, anti-corruption and anti-Mugabe protests that have since turned into huge riots all across the country.
After the citizens of Zimbabwe resorted to shutting down the country in a huge stay away on the 6th of July, the govt has reacted by attempting to disarm the revolts by shutting down the Internet, which is the main mobilisation tool of the protesters.
Mugabe is not the first ‘douche-bag’ to do this.
. Here is a quick guide to surviving a blackout using a VPN.
What the hell is a VPN??
- VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A VPN service links users computer to a server in a country of their choice via encrypted tunnel – for example, a person can appear to be in the U.S., while they actually are in Zimbabwe, and vice versa, simply by choosing a different VPN server location. A VPN service like allows you to substitute your current IP address with the IP address of ..say Sweden so you can connect to Twitter as if you were in Sweden.
- A VPN encrypts your data through a secure tunnel before accessing the internet – this protects any sensitive information about your location by hiding your IP address.
- A VPN does not keep any logs and uses very powerful encryption to route your online data. This way you can protect yourself from data tracking or cyber attacks and maintain your anonymity on the internet whether you’re using a PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet, gaming consoles or any other device that requires an internet connection.
