How to Unblock WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, Instagram, and others social services in Turkey

The government of Turkey has blocked WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, Instagram, and others social services. It was confirmed by Internet monitoring company TurkeyBlocks.

Alp Toker , founder of TurkeyBlocks ,  confirmed that it is the first time personal messaging services WhatsApp and Skype have been blocked.

The shutdown is related to the arrest of multiple leaders of the opposition party to president Erdoğan’s right-wing government.

Turkey has been plagued by Internet shutdowns in recent weeks. Millions were cut off in the southeast, a move which TurkeyBlocks claimed

“prevent[ed] the supply of medical supplies to patients and crippl[ed] infrastructure.”

According to the monitors,

“social media throttling has been implemented frequently following national emergencies like terror attacks to censor media coverage and permit the authorities a degree of control over narrative.”

Millions of social media users suffer from these restrictions.

The only  reliable solution to avoid filtering is using a VPN – virtual private network.

All you need to access blocked sites is:

      1. Get VPN
