Netflix vs VPN – Who win?

netflix-300x300

The real war between Netflix and vpn services lasts over a month. Since January, many Netflix users who are using vpn get messages:

“You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. Please turn off any of these services and try again.”

The first complains come from Australia and after that many users all over the world had the same issue.

The changes are mostly performed to indulge copyright holders and broadcasters.

But what about users?

Why Netflix cares only about the money??

What about users’ privacy and on-line security???

Bad thing:

The real problem is that many people are using vpn to stay safe and protected in the Internet not just to access to illegal content.

Good thing:

Netflix cannot block all vpn services. It looks like it simple ban some special ip addresses that belong to vpn providers.

So if you need to VPN to watch Netflix – do not buy it before testing. Probable it will not work for you.

What about the war between Netflix and VPN – we are sure – VPN will win!

Last days we have received a lot of questions and letters from people from Morocco.

How to unblock Skype in Morocco?

How to access Skype from Morocco?

Can I use Viber from Morocco?

How to unblock Viber?

It is possible to use WhatsApp in Morocco ?

Why I cannot use VOIP in Morocco?

We have investigated the problem and find out that recently most of Internet calling services and messengers were blocked in Morocco.

Morocco: Skype, Viber, Facebook and WhatsApp calls were blocked by telecommunication service providers (including the Telcos, Maroc Telecom, Meditel, and Inwi).

This violates the principle of Network Neutrality and the fundamental rights of people.

People from Morocco are lifting their voices to fight for their right to free expression. They launched multiple petitions on Change.org and Avaaz immediately after the three leading telcos shut off access to VoIP services. Thousands of people have already signed the petitions, which advise the national telecommunications regulator to investigate the blocking, and which also call on telcos directly to end their illegal restrictions.

We believe that  internet blocks are a violation of human rights and must be stopped.

However while the restrictions are still working you can avoid them using VPN solution.

Netflix in Indonesia – how to unblock in 3 simple steps

netflix-logo1

Yesterday, January 28, Netflix was blocked in Indonesia by state telco Telkom.

Earlie this month US-based Netflix launched in Indonesia  as part of 130-country simultaneous roll-out. A spokesperson from the streaming company told the Wall St Journal that it did not need said permit as it is not a traditional broadcaster, but an internet broadcaster.

Netflix goes worldwide – do you still need VPN?

One expert said the setback had been “inevitable”.

Telekom Indonesia said Netflix needed to work with it to ensure objectionable content was removed.

“The issue is about the permit. They don’t follow the rules. They also display violence and adult content,” the firm’s consumer director Dian Rachmawan told the Jakarta Post newspaper.

“We must [block it] before things get more complicated and create a serious issue.”

The country’s government said that it was not behind the move.

“Other internet service providers are still allowing Netflix access. So, it is a pure corporate decision,” said communications minister Rudiantara.

“[But] it will be difficult for Netflix. You can see for yourself on how much content there is [in Netflix] that must be censored.”

Today Indonesia is one of the most populated nations in Asia with about 250 million people living on islands.

Netflix has not disclosed how it intends to address the issue.

“We’ve seen these reports too and are looking into it. No further comment.” a spokesman told the BBC.

How to unblock Netflix in Indonesia

While the problem is not resolved there is only one solution that can help:

using VPN service to change your IP address to USA (where Netflix is allowed).

So to access Netflix in Indonesia you need:

  1. Get VPN
  2. Setup VPN Connection from your device
  3. Enjoy Netflix videos!

Which VPN is safe to use in UAE in 2016

internet safety with Sahrzad vpn
We often get questions like:

Is it safe to use VPN in UAE?
Which VPN is safe to use in UAE?
How to select a good vpn provider in UAE?

VPN safety is based on tunnelling protocols and encryption techniques.

The VPN security model provides:

  • Confidentiality such that even if the network traffic is sniffed at the packet level (see network sniffer and Deep packet inspection), an attacker would only see encrypted data
  • Sender authentication to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the VPN
  • Message integrity to detect any instances of tampering with transmitted messages

Read more in Wikipedia

Some virtual networks may not use encryption to protect the privacy of data. While VPNs often provide security, an unencrypted overlay network does not neatly fit within the secure or trusted categorization. So selecting a reliable vpn service provider pay attention if they provide encryption.

Log files

Another question of security and safety:

Does VPN provider keep log files?

The best for your security if vpn service does not store your log files. This means nobody knows what you are doing online and so no one can supervise your Internet activity.

We tested only the most reliable and secure services with the main features:

  1. Help to Unblock All sites
  2. Safe, secure, and reliable
  3. Protect your privacy

Provide good service with:

  1. No speed limits
  2. No bandwidth
  3. No log files
