Skype – one of the best online communication tool

With a 16-year history behind it, Skype is one of the most popular voice-over-IP (VOIP) services worldwide that lets you hold voice & video calls over the internet. The app is free to download and use (for the most part) and offers an excellent solution for staying connected with friends and loved ones, and even with colleagues, for those working remotely.

In 2011, Skype was purchased by Microsoft and incorporated as an entirely new division there. Although Skype is famous for video calls and instant messaging the app also features:

  • Video calls with multiple users simultaneously
  • Screen-sharing during video calls
  • Live subtitles for increased accessibility

Why use a VPN for Skype

Unfortunately, with all the features Skype has available for free, it has become a real thorn in the side of telecommunication companies. Which is why many countries, including Brazil, Mexico, China, or UAE have blocked people’s access to this service. In other countries, like Egypt, the government won’t let Skype operate due to not being able to monitor people’s communications. Some countries don’t even openly acknowledge the fact they don’t want Skype there, and instead of banning the service altogether, they order ISPs to painfully slow down the speed at which the service operates.

Fortunately, all these problems can easily go away with the help of a VPN.

How VPNs work miracles

A VPN, or virtual private network, works by replacing your ISP-given IP address with one from its server network. The data that then travels across the internet is encrypted, making your online activity 100% private. As a result, no one, not your government, not your ISP, not the cleverest hacker, will be able to track your traffic and deny access to Skype, or any other online service.

The key to unblocking Skype using a VPN is to make sure you connect to a server where Skype is not blocked.
