UK – The land of no privacy
For UK citizens, privacy is almost a forgotten concept. With the implementation of the Investigatory Powers Act (IPA) - also known as Snoopers’ Charter - in December 2016, the British state has created a totalitarian-style surveillance apparatus. The government can randomly monitor, intercept, record, and even hack the communications of the entire population.
This mass surveillance program is so intrusive that the European Court of Human Rights stated that it violates human rights.
With the IPA in place, none of your data is safe. Private details such as banking and insurance information, health records, and other confidential records stored electronically are all at risk of falling into the wrong hands.
They know what you did last year... and the year before
The IPA is worse than it seems. Internet Service Providers and telecom companies are recording your browsing history, connection times, and text messages. And this user data gets stored for 2 years and is made readily available to government agencies and their partners without any warrant necessary.
As if this wasn’t enough, the UK is part of the 5, 9, and 14-eyes alliances.
These alliances represent a global-surveillance entity that collects and shares your data. This means that even though the UK only stores data for 2 years, there’s no reason to believe other countries won’t keep it for even longer.
Censorship in the UK is real
UK residents are banned from accessing websites such as: The Pirate Bay, Kickass Torrents, Afdah, Putlocker, First Row Sports, and other similar torrenting or streaming sites.
Here are the Internet Service Providers that implement these default blocks:
And let’s not forget the UK is also banning adult material online.
CyberGhost VPN – your all-in-one solution for online privacy and total freedom
A UK VPN is your way out of all this mess. A good VPN service will:
●Keep your online activity private and secure
●Allow you to visit prohibited websites
●Override the porn ban
●Unblock Netflix US and other streaming services
●Let you access UK content when travelling abroad
It's time for CyberGhost VPN.
Redeem your online privacy
When using our VPN app, all your online activity is directed through a tunnel created solely between you and the site you want to access. Both the tunnel itself and the data travelling through it use strong encryption – so the contents are always hidden.
Plus, CyberGhost VPN makes sure no one will ever get their hands on your browsing habits or access any of your private data. Since we keep no logs, you’ll be the only one knowing what you do online.
Access blocked websites
If you’re tired of not being allowed to do as you wish online, CyberGhost VPN is just what you need.
You see, your Internet service provider uses a technology called ‘Transparent DNS Proxy’ to block those websites. This means all your online connection requests are routed to your ISP’s DNS servers. Once those servers see a connection request to a blocked website, it simply refuses to redirect you to that Internet address.
Luckily, there’s an easy way past this. By using CyberGhost VPN, your traffic is encrypted and going through our servers instead.
It may sound complicated, but it really isn’t. Our app is the set-and-forget type so, all you’ll have to do is hit the power button once and let it work its magic.
Unblock Netflix US, Amazon Prime US and
other blocked streaming services
The fact that online streaming services such as Netflix use geo-restrictions is no secret. Because of this, people can only access only a fraction of the platform’s available content
And this is just one example. Other websites, such as Sling TV, are completely blocked for people outside the US.
The good news is you can outsmart these geo-blockings with a VPN. You see, these online restrictions work by identifying your real location based on your IP address.
By routing your traffic through CyberGhost’s virtual private network, you get to hide your IP address and replace it with one of your choosing, you’ll be able to enjoy total online freedom.
Access adult content without restrictions
On 15 July 2019, a new law will come into force across the United Kingdom, restricting access to adult material. But all you have to to do to bypass this porn ban is to connect to a CyberGhost VPN server located outside the UK.
With servers in 89 other countries besides the UK, CyberGhost offers a lot of variety from which you can choose from.
Access UK content from abroad
Travelling outside the UK often means giving up on the possibility of staying up to date with local news, sporting events or UK TV shows. Blame geo-restrictions once more.
To bypass these barriers all you need is a UK IP address.
And CyberGhost VPN has over 320 specific servers located in the UK to help with that. Plus, we have VPN servers specially optimized for:
Enjoy online freedom on all your devices
One CyberGhost subscription allows you to simultaneously use our app on up to 7 different internet-connected gadgets.
