Twitter has been ban in Nigeria but many have been wondering how to use VPN on Android and iPhone? That shouldn’t be an issue as we got you covered.
Nigerians are currently going through a tough time surfing on Twitter after the government led by Muhammad Buhari suspended the operation of the platform.
However, through the use of VPN, some Nigerians have been able to bypass the government and use the platform.
Below are the things you should know on how to use VPN for Twitter on Android and iPhone
What is VPN
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet by hiding your traffic from being seen by others. It connects your PC, smartphone, or tablet to another server and allows you to browse the internet.
So, if that server is in a different country, it will appear as if you are browsing from that country, and you can potentially access things that you couldn’t normally.
VPNs have been used to access the internet in similar situations in other countries in the past.
VPN can be used to:
Bypass geographic restrictions on websites, audio or video streaming.
Bypass government restrictions on certain apps, just like the current Twitter Ban in Nigeria.
Protect yourself from untrustworthy Wi-Fi hotspots.
Hide your true location.
In the case of Nigerians unable to access Twitter in their country, VPN will be used to change location and this will help in having access to the site.
