It is not surprising to see oppressed nations embracing Tor as a solution to bypass censorship. Turkey has recently been dealing with a massive ban wave of popular sites and platforms. By using Tor and VPN services, users can still access these platforms and enjoy free speech. It is evident the consumers are well ahead of the government in this cyber arms race.
Tor Becomes A Fan Favorite In Turkey
The situation in Turkey is far more severe than most people anticipate. Over 100,000 websites have been banned by the government, including social media platforms and Youtube. Since all of these websites can be used for free speech and openly complaining about the Turkish regime, the government decided to censor everyone in the country as a result.
Bypassing these artificial blockades is proving to be quite easy, though. In fact, a lot of global Internet users sees merit in Tor, the browser software often associated with the darknet. However, since this tool reroutes internet traffic, it is an effective way to bypass ISP or government blockades on the World Wide Web.
