How to Unblock Websites in Qatar Safe and Easy

Unblock-Sites-Qatar

Internet censorship in Qatar

During the past years Internet penetration in Qatar is growing rapidly. Today over 90% of Qatar citizens are using Internet. Qatar one of the most connected countries in Gulf region, but Internet use is censored. Internet filtering is very serious in Qatar.
According to Reporters Without Borders , Qtel (Qatar Telecom – government telecommunications service provider )

“has the means to spy on messages sent through the other ISPs.”

A U.S. State Department Human Rights report said that the government of Qatar censors the Internet through a proxy server that monitors and blocks Web sites, e-mail, and chat rooms through the state-owned ISP.

What is blocked or monitored in Qatar

Sites Blocked in Qatar

Social and Internet tools like:

Youtube

Facebook

Skype

Viber

WhatsApp

Blogging platforms

Tumblr

E-mail services

Political and conflict/security areas

Political filtering is limited, but journalists usually avoid reporting on sensitive issues. This is mostly content that tends to critique major Middle Eastern authority figures.

Many websites are blocked

Adult content:

pornographic

gay and lesbian content

sexual health resources

reproductive health

dating and escort services.

adult sexual content is all forbidden, because the Idea of sex is bad in Islam.

Some religious concerned websites

Privacy and circumvention tools are restricted in Qatar.

Besides that a lot of non-obscene or non-offensive Web sites are also blocked in the country.

Internet censorship in the country is regulated by Qatar cyber Crime Law. Below you can find forbidden on-line activity:

  1. Create or manage a website to spread false news in order to jeopardize the safety of the state, its general order and its local or international peace (penalty: up to three years in prison and/or a maximum fine of QR500,000);
  2. Spread, air or publish the false news with the same intentions (penalty: up to one year in prison and/or a maximum fine of QR250,000);
  3. Violate any social values or principles, or publish news, pictures, audio or video recordings related to the personal or family life of individuals – even if it is true (penalty: up to a year in prison and/or a maximum fine of QR100,000);
  4. Libel or slander another person online or by using IT equipment (penalty: up to a year in prison and/or a maximum fine of QR100,000).
    Service providers must also “block any websites or links when asked by judicial entities.They have to keep users information for a year and temporarily keep record of electronic information, traffic data or content information for 90 days that can be renewed at the request of the investigating entity.

Fortunately there are several simple solutions which can help to access any blocked website while you are in Qatar or other Gulf Country.

Before considering the solutions how you can unblock sites in Qatar we need to understand how internet limits work in this country.

How Internet restrictions work in Qatar?

binary-1187194_640

Internet censorship in Qatar is mainly based on country’s IP address. If you are located in Qatar and connect to Internet using one of country’s Internet service providers you get Qatar IP address and all restrictions work for you.

In case you can hide your real IP address you can avoid censorship.

So the most popular methods of opening blocked sites are based on IP masking. However there are others tools that can help to open restricted content.

We gathered the most popular and easy tools for you.

9 Ways to Open Blocked Sites in Qatar

  1. Use Proxy service

Proxy unblocker is probable the most popular solution used to bypass Internet censorship. Proxy is a computer that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking some information. User connects to the proxy, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource available from a different server and the proxy gives a result.

Proxy can only mask your IP address while VPN (see below) not only hides real IP but also encrypts all the traffic sent via VPN tunnel.

proxy

Communication between two computers (shown in grey) connected through a third computer (shown in red) acting as a proxy. Bob does not know to whom the information is going, which is why proxies can be used to protect privacy.

Pros and Cons of using Proxy in Qatar:

+ This solution works to unblock sites

–  proxy is not very safe

–  Most free proxy services are banned in Qatar.

2.    Use https instead of http

The second method that can help you to unblock websites in using https instead of http when you are trying to surf some website.

Pros and Cons of using https instead of http to open blocked site

+ this is free

Works only for some sites

Cannot help in many cases

3.    Use browser extension

Another way to unblock sites in countries with Internet filtering in using Browser extension.

There are many extensions for some well known browsers like Chrome and Firefox which can help you to mask your IP address and open blocked sites. Some of them are free others are paid.

Pros and Cons of using browser extensions:

+ can help to access blocked sites

Can collect some information from your browser

Not safe

Not secure

Require additional software of your computer

4.    Use third party software

Some people use special software like unblockers to avoid on-line censorship. There are many software solutions which mask your IP address and in such way help to access blocked content.  This is very risky and hazardous because you cannot be sure what this software is doing on your computer besides unblocking websites. It can collect your passwords of other sensitive information. So you need to be very accurate using such tools.

Pros and Cons of using third party software:

+ unblock blocked websites

– Can steal some information from your computer or mobile device

Not safe

Not secure

Require additional software of your computer

Using unblocking software is not safe for your privacy!

5.    Use mobile applications

If you are using mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, Android devices you can try to install mobile vpn application like Spider VPN for example.

However, if you really care about your security it is better to avoid not certified applications and setup secure connections using standard system options like VPN.

Pros and Cons of using mobile applications:

+ help to open blocked websites

– Some applications are Not safe

Not secure

Require additional software of your mobile device

Free versions show tones of advertising

6.    Use wayback machine

Several years ago in works great but I am not sure it works now in Qatar. However you can try. Probable this can help you.

Pros and Cons of using mobile applications:

+  sometimes can help to unblock blocked websites

Not safe

Not secure

7.    Try Translation services

Sometime translation services like Google translate can help to bypass Internet limits when you try to translate banned page to another service. This might help to unblock websites.

Pros and Cons of using Try Translation:

+ free solution

+  sometimes can help to unblock blocked websites

Not safe

Not secure

9.    Use websites – unblockers

There are many sites unblockers which can help to open blocked sites. Unfortunately most of them are blocked in Qatar. Also these services are not secure and it is better to avoid such websites if you care about your security.

This can work for some cases.

Pros and Cons of using Website Unblockers:

+ free solution

+  sometimes can help to unblock blocked websites

– Not safe

Not secure

10.Use VPN Service

Finally we want to tell you about using a VPN solution for accessing blocked sites. This is the safest and the most secure method you can use to unblock sites in Qatar.

How to Select the Best VPN for Qatar?

Sometimes selecting a VPN provider can be complicated process. If you are not familiar with VPN technology we suggest you to consider the following factors while selecting a virtual private network for Qatar.

1. Server locations.

If you want to bypass Internet filtering in Qatar you need to change your IP address to another country. So you have to select the country fo vpn server location where there is no limits. For example, you can choose USA or Europe vpn servers.
If you need to get a specific country IP address it is better to consider only required country.

2. Speed limits

Some vpn providers restrict your speed. Video streaming requires high speed Internet connection so it is better to chose vpn provider who will not limit your speed.

3. Bandwidth limits

Some vpn providers limit your Bandwidth.
Bandwidth is an amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in a given time period (usually a second). Bandwidth limits mean some restrictions for your Internet surfing. It is better to avoid this.
Network bandwidth is usually expressed in bits per second (bps).
Internet Networks typically have speeds measured in the millions of bits per second (megabits per second, or Mbps) or billions of bits per second (gigabits per second, or Gbps).
Different applications require different bandwidths.
An instant messaging conversation might take less than 1,000 bits per second (bps)
voice over IP (VoIP) conversation requires 56 kilobits per second (Kbps) to sound smooth and clear.
Standard definition video (480p) works at 1 megabit per second (Mbps), but HD video (720p) wants around 4 Mbps, and HDX (1080p), more than 7 Mbps.
So the choice depends on your needs.

4. Encryption and security

The most popular is 128-bit encryption. However 256-bit is more reliable. Encryption level provides you security and anonymity on-line.

5. Log files

Before buying a vpn service ask if they keep log files. This is additional factor of your safety and security. No log files mean the best level of security.

6. Price

Of price is probable the most important factor for vpn service. But please remember that very cheap vpn is probable not the best solution due to safety and reliability.

7. Money Back Guarantee

If you decided to buy a vpn – read Refund policy. Good VPN Service providers have Money Back Guarantee.

8. Free trial

Free trial is a great option vpn provider can offer their customers. Using free trail vpn you can test the service before ordering. In this case customer can be sure that vpn service meets his requirements.

9. P2P/Torrents

On the chance of downloading torrents you need to read terms of service provider before buying because many vpn providers prohibit p2p activity.

VPN for Internet Banking – Why Use it?

VPN for on-line banking

Today on-line banking is used everyday by millions people around the world. How safe is it and do you need a VPN for on-line Banking.
One of the most popular question is:

“I wanted to know if I should use a VPN (virtual private network) to connect to my bank website. A service I came across claims that they will encrypt my connection, but I don’t know if they can be trusted or not. What do you think? “

This is a great question. Selecting a vpn provider for your needs you must be sure that you can trust them. This is very important when we are talking about Internet banking.

What is VPN and How It Works?

A VPN (virtual private network) is a secured tunnel that connects your device (computer, mobile phone, planshet) and another computer (a VPN server) somewhere else in the world. The connection between your computer and the VPN server is encrypted. The encryption guarantee your data safety. All your data passed with this secured channel is hidden from third parties.

Is your encryption secure?

Usually vpn providers offer 128 or 256-bit encryption. This means that all your data is coded and cannot be intercepted.

Should You Use a VPN when Connecting to Your Bank?

Generally speaking, if you are using reliable Internet connection, if your system is not infected with viruses or malware, your operating system is up to date with the latest security patches, and you’re using the latest web browser version of Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer, then connecting to your bank should be perfectly secure and nothing else needs to be done. Millions of people use on-line banking like that every day.

But in cases you are using unsafe Internet connection (like Wi-Fi) – using VPN is a necessity!

How can Using a VPN Service Backfire on You?

Under the vpn you get different IP address and you have to be ready to answer your bank security why your IP is changed. Bank checks everything to be sure that your bank account is not compromised. Online banking HAS TO BE SAFE..the bank should monitor your Computer IP location, EVERY TIME. Monitor ANY changes from ANY device that connects to it.

Whether or not you decide to use a VPN service depends only on your circumstances.

If you need a VPN service to simply anonymize your IP address – for example, to gain access to certain services (such as accessing content that would otherwise not be available to you due to geographical restrictions), then yes, a VPN service will help you.
