Unblock Telegram

Telegram is one of the few instant messaging apps that claim to offer complete privacy. The app was created by Pavel Durov, the same man behind the popular Russian social media platform VK.

Telegram offers apps for iOS and Android, as well as a desktop apps for Windows, Linux and macOS, which have some handy keyboard shortcuts.

Their service is non-profit, cloud-based instant messaging and they claim to never record their users' conversation and never sell their data to third parties such as advertisers. Telegram's secret chat uses end-to-end encryption to protect users and leave no trace of their conversations.

That’s why Russia, a more authoritarian country blocks Telegram. Which means if you're traveling to Russia, you can't be contacted on Telegram. Telegram in Iran is also blocked, and other countries that have banned the service include: China, Bahrain, Indonesia and Pakistan.

However, there's an easy fix that allows Telegram users to access the app even if it's blocked. ZenMate VPN can help you access Telegram in Russia, or in other countries that have a Telegram block.

How does ZenMate VPN work?

A VPN, or a virtual private network, is a cyber-security tool used to encrypt your internet traffic so no one can track you. So, when you're using a VPN you're protected from cyber-criminals, hackers, governmental tracking or advertisers.

The way it works is VPNs offer remote servers that you can connect to before accessing a blocked website. When you connect to a secure VPN server, your dedicated IP address is instantly changed to one from a different location. Which means the website you're visiting sees you as connecting from somewhere else in the world, not from a country that they have to block access because of governmental restrictions.

ZenMate VPN has about 3700 global servers, located in over 74 countries worldwide. So, you'll always be able to connect to a country where Telegram isn't banned.
