Why use a VPN in Azerbaijan?
Remain secret online
Azerbaijan has been rated as “Not Free” in Freedom House’s Freedom of the Net 2019 rating. The government is tightening its grip on online activities. With a VPN, as long as you remain anonymous, you can protect your secrecy. It’s hard to track down a user with a hidden IP address!
Overcome blocks and government censorship
The government of Azerbaijan is prone to blocking websites they find disagreeable. This applies to news outlets, social media platforms, and all sorts of other services. With a VPN, you can bypass these censorship blocks and access the free internet.
Stream Netflix fast and privately
Entertainment should not come at the cost of your privacy. Streaming with a VPN on will make sure you’re protected from online threats even when relaxing! And if you’re worried about speed, don’t be. Our 1GBit blazing fast servers will make you forget you’re using a VPN at all.
Is VPN use illegal in Azerbaijan?
VPN use remains legal in Azerbaijan. The government may be tightening its reign over network technologies, but VPNs remain untouched thus far. This is very important, as the government is using Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to limit access to websites they don’t approve of. Encryption employed by VPN services makes DPI blind and thus renders your traffic safe and unhindered. This technology also prevents traffic shaping or internet throttling. There have been reports with Skype and other communication apps experiencing slowdowns when serious events happen in Azerbaijan. This may be an effect of throttling.
What’s more, a VPN can help hide your IP. With a government that uses trolling and intimidation against its critics, it’s an important safety measure for regular users. Not to mention, some VPNs can even hide the fact that you’re using a VPN. Surfshark’s Camouflage mode ensures just that.
However, it still goes without saying that doing anything against the law with a VPN is illegal. Surfshark does not encourage using a VPN in any way that would potentially violate the law or Terms of Service of other service providers.
Should I pay for a VPN?
You should pay for a VPN, and there are multiple reasons for it. Unlike most free software, a VPN relies on physical infrastructure. Servers have to be either purchased or rented, and maintenance costs have to be paid. That money has to come from somewhere. For free VPNs, that may come from ads or selling the users’ metadata. For premium VPNs, that money comes from subscriptions.
Those funds are also what gives a technological edge for premium VPNs. Money can be invested in research and development. This allows a VPN developer to utilize the latest security tools and encryption standards, have better reaction times when it comes to issues and bugs, and generally be better at maintaining the product. For Surfshark, it also means having 24/7 customer support!
Will my internet connection slow down when using a VPN?
Your connection will slow down a bit when using a VPN. Some of it is unavoidable: the encryption technology used by the VPN app will demand a bit of bandwidth. Another part of it is situational: it depends on how far the VPN server you want to connect is and whether it’s busy.
On the other hand, there are circumstances under which your connection speed may actually improve. Some ISPs throttle your connection when you use traffic-intensive services like online gaming and video streaming. VPNs can overcome that.
Get a VPN you can rely on
Get an Azerbaijan VPN and remain anonymous online. Your IP will be hidden from everyone once you connect to the VPN service. If you don’t post any personally identifiable information, you’ll be safe.
ISPs can track what you do online - but not with a VPN. VPN providers can log your activities - but not Surfshark. We operate under a strict no-logs policy, and we will never record what you do online.
