VyprVPN Comes to the Middle East!

middle_east_blog_gf

VyprVPN is making its debut in the Middle East with the addition of three new server locations – Bahrain (Manama), Qatar (Doha), and Saudi Arabia (Riyadh). A fourth location in Dubai, United Arab Emirates will also be added soon. These servers are our first server locations in the Middle East, and will provide users with unprecedented access to the region’s restricted networks.

Internet access in the Middle East faces a number of restrictions. Censorship includes popular VoIP services like Skype, as well as culturally and politically sensitive material, dating sites and pornography. Bahrain in particular faces strong censorship, especially in regards to political information and anything critical of government, parliament or the ruling family. Although social media sites are not blocked, some individual pages on these sites are.

Despite this censorship, people in the Middle East (especially the younger demographic) are very reliant on technology and social media to communicate. Thus, it’s essential they have access to a free and open Internet. VyprVPN provides this access.

How to Access the Middle East Server locations:

  • VyprVPN Desktop – If you use VyprVPN Desktop, the new server locations will automatically be available when you choose your server location.
  • VyprVPN Mobile – If you use VyprVPN Mobile, simply log out of the app and log back in to enable Manama, Doha and Riyadh.

You have access to 50+ global server locations!
