Ghosties, both CyberGhost app and website have been blocked in Turkey since yesterday. We are currently working to fix this problem. Until this issue is solved, you can use our Chrome and Firefox browser extensions which allow you to surf the web anonymously.
We’ll make sure to keep you updated on this matter!
Short history of internet censorship in Turkey
In Turkey, the government is in complete control of citizens’ access to online content and also of their level of digital privacy.
As an example, the Turkish government requires IPSs to keep the activity logs of all users for 2 years and these logs can be checked by the government at any time if they require. The web traffic is also filtered by the government and some websites are always blocked.
Over the years, internet censorship and freedom of speech have turned to be worse and worse. By 2017, Turkey hold the 155th position in the world based on freedom index.
Why is a VPN the optimal solution for internet freedom?
Many Turkish citizens have relied on VPNs in order to enjoy complete online freedom. By using CyberGhost VPN, you can hide your IP, connect to one of our numerous servers from over 50 countries and access basic websites such as YouTube, Facebook, etc. Plus, CyberGhost provides a secure connection and you can be sure that you’ll remain anonymous online thanks to our features, such as “Block online tracking”.
Unfortunately, many VPNs including CyberGhost have been blocked by the government in the past.
