Hide IP & Unblock Sites on Android with Windscribe VPN for Free

Every internet user is supposed to be free to visit any site on Internet but whether you are on a WiFi connection or on your own mobile data, many sites are kept blocked. Either they are blocked by your Internet Provider, Country’s Government, WiFi owners and sometimes website & web content owners themselves. All these restrictions forcefully control our Internet browsing which is very bad.

While browsing many important websites or online content, you might have seen notices like “your requested URL has been blocked”, “the owner of this video hasn’t made it available in your country”, “only US users can stream videos”, etc. errors.
