Wikipedia – the free encyclopedia

Since its launch back in 2001, Wikipedia has slowly but surely transformed into everyone's go-to free online encyclopedia. Despite its modest roots, Wikipedia now boasts over 40 million articles in 301 different languages. With over 300,000 active users it doesn’t seem like the open source project will stop anytime soon.

As of April 2019, diverse content can be found of different versions (or languages) of the Wikipedia library:

English - 5,836,300+ articles
Cebuano - 5,368,100+ articles
Swedish - 3,748,500+ articles
German - 2,288,500+ articles
French - 2,095,100+ articles
Dutch - 1,962,600+ articles
Russian - 1,539,500+ articles
Italian - 1,519,000+ articles
Spanish - 1,514,600+ articles
Polish - 1,330,300+ articles
Waray - 1,263,500+ articles
Vietnamese - 1,205,200+ articles
Japanese - 1,146,000+ articles
Chinese - 1,051,600+ articles
Portuguese - 1,004,200+ articles
Ukrainian - 896,800+ articles
Arabic - 716,200+ articles
Persian - 671,700+ articles
Serbian - 618,200+ articles
Catalan - 610,300+ articles

No wonder Alexa ranked Wikipedia the 5th most popular website.

The platform also covers a wide range of topics and subjects of interest:

Culture and the arts: 30% Technology and the applied sciences: 4%
Biographies and persons: 15% Religions and belief systems: 2%
Geography and places: 14% Health: 2%
Society and social sciences: 12% Mathematics and logic: 1%
History and events: 11% Thought and philosophy: 1%
Natural and physical sciences: 9%

When you also factor in Wikipedia’s open and uncensored policy, it’s clear why most internet users turn to this encyclopedia for information.

Not everyone supports Wikipedia

Unfortunately, not everyone sees Wikipedia as a beneficial resource. The presence of politically, religiously, and pornographically sensitive materials has led it being censored by national authorities in some countries.

At least some content from Wikipedia was blocked in the following countries:

Saudi Arabia
United Arab Emirates
United Kingdom

The censorship isn’t limited only to restrictive or prudish governments. Wikipedia can also be blocked on a local scale through ISPs. A typical example of this is Wikipedia being restricted in schools, universities, and student dorms, to prevent plagiarism and encourage research.

But that shouldn't stop you having access for legitimate reasons. CyberGhost VPN can help you unblock Wikipedia.


Bypass restrictions and access Wikipedia

Internet Service Providers usually know whether to give you access or not to specific web pages based on your IP and location.

But with CyberGhost as your VPN provider, your IP address is hidden and replaced with one from our system. This way, you’re able to bypass restrictions and access the free educational content of Wikipedia.

Access Wikipedia on all your devices

Whether you're using the Wikipedia app on your phone or you’re on your desktop, we’ve got you covered. We have a wide range of apps, which encrypt your entire internet traffic.

You can quench your thirst for knowledge on Windows, macOS, iOS or Android devices and no one can snoop on you.

And the good news keeps on coming. Just one CyberGhost VPN subscription can simultaneously protect up to 7 devices. You’ll be training your brain and keeping your entire digital life safe and private.

Your Wikipedia unblocker: CyberGhost VPN

We have a network of more than 9200 servers in 91+ countries, and we’re continually expanding our server park. No matter where you are, there are servers available for you.

Ditch the proxy, choose a VPN for Wikipedia

Using a free proxy service to reroute your internet traffic might seem appealing, but it’s not risk-free. Since there’s no encryption involved, you’re handing over your data to a third party. And this is concerning.

If you’re after unblocking the online encyclopedia and surfing safely, the VPN service of CyberGhost is what you need.
