How to Access Blocked Websites in Russia

You are going to the World Cup and want to know how to access blocked websites in Russia? This has been a topic that was being mentioned a lot lately. And a lot of it was exaggerated by VPN companies trying to gain extra customers. While Russia for sure is making some bad choices when it comes to banning sites, you can’t compare it to China as most of what you would access is still available in Russia. But yet, some sites and platforms that should be allowed to be accessed, aren’t.

And that’s why you are probably trying to find out how to access blocked websites in Russia. Or maybe you are here for the other reason. You want to access sites that provide certain content only in specific countries. For instance, you want to access American Netflix in Russia as it offers much more content.

Before You Read How to Access Blocked Websites in Russia

I get it. You might want to know how to access blocked websites in Russia because you want to use British or American Netflix while in Russia. I get it. But if you are going to the damn World Cup that happens once every four years, to watch Netflix, or Hulu, or Amazon Prime in the middle of the day, you should be ashamed.

You are missing out on one of the best celebrations that include nations from all around the world coming together to watch a new TV show? Lame.

Of course, if you are on a plane or a bus, or you just got back to your hotel or apartment, okay, then it’s fine, but otherwise, you should be out as you will be able to watch Netflix or whatever you want, after the World Cup.

At the same time, the tip we are about to provide will help you keep your data secure while in Russia. It will help you access services that you might need for work. And it will help you watch Netflix in the middle of the day. What you do, that’s up to you. But this post is meant to help you access blocked websites in Russia, so let’s get into that.

How to Access Blocked Websites in Russia

It’s simple. There’s no hacking involved. No illegal software needed. It’s merely using technology that allows you to be anywhere in the world without being there meaning that nobody knows what you are accessing and where you actually are in real life. Not even the government.

That technology for all of that? It’s called a VPN, and yes, we are a VPN company as you would guess by our name, PrivateVPN.

If you want to access a blocked site in Russia and are connected to our service, you will be able to do so. We have servers in over 100 locations in 56 countries at the time of writing, so whether you want to connect to our server in Russia or South Korea, you can.

And speaking of 100 locations, if you want to access that American, Swedish, or British Netflix, you can. Anything that you want to access with a VPN that you can’t because you are in Russia and get a message that the “content that you are trying to access is not available” there, you can access it.

Make sure to reach out to our customer support if you aren’t sure about a service working!
