Are you like me who doesn’t like the idea of springing up a VPN each time I need to access Twitter? Are you bothered about following our guide on how to use Twitter in Nigeria with free VPNs? if the answer I yes, then, I’m sure you would be very interested in knowing how to access Twitter in Nigeria without using a VPN. In today’s article, I would be showing a working trick to access the social media platform Twitter that was recently banned by the Nigerian Federal Government.
a VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network is used to hide the IP (internet protocol) address of any device that is accessing the internet. This means that any website or platform that you visit, won’t have access to your original internet location instead, it would only show them one that the VPN tunnels your traffic to. After the Ministry of Information and Culture made the Twitter ban announcement, all internet providers in Nigeria stopped their users from using their IP address to access the social media platform. So technically, a VPN would change the IP address that is provided by your network provider, thereby giving you access to Twitter.
Risks Associated with using VPNs
While a VPN is of an advantage in this issue, there some risks or cons that come with using them, especially the untrusted VPNs. Your device would still be exposed to malware and viruses despite using a VPN, so you need to wary of the website that you visit or what you download on those websites.
Also, oftentimes, VPN would slow down your internet connection. Yes, having a VPN running in the background would slow your internet connection at about 10-20%. Finally, is the issue of your user data privacy. While the VPN lets you access banned sites like Twitter, it also gains access to your internet data. So always make sure that you are using a VPN provider that you trust very well.
