Surf the internet in total freedom without the fear of being blocked or detected with our Algeria VPN. Urban VPN has servers across the globe, guaranteeing you a lightning-fast connection and thousands of IPs to choose from, so that you will be able to easily mind your business anonymously and safely while in Algeria.
Over the last five years, the number of Internet users in Algeria has almost doubled, reaching 21 million users in 2019 according to Statista. This rise is due to increased navigation speeds and lower tariffs, alongside governmental initiatives to introduce the internet into rural communities. Additionally, Algeria has become a major tourist destination, increasing the demand for public internet hotspots and improved connectivity.
The Algerian government has significant control over the country’s media regulatory bodies and internet suppliers. Regulations allow government Internet access control and content monitoring, and the major service provider Algérie Télécom is owned by the government.
Public free Wi-Fi hotspots are available throughout major cities and cater to both locals and the growing population of tourists. However, these public network connections are provided by government owned suppliers, often have poor encryption, and are vulnerable to cyber monitoring and censorship.
Although the Algerian constitution protects freedom of information, media and expression, the centralized media environment permits the Algerian government to impose significant restrictions on media outlets and online activity. As reported by the Human Rights Watch, during late 2019 the Algerian government blocked several IP addresses used by a major independent news site in the country. Social media is also regularly monitored and was used to investigate and arrest journalists and activists.
Urban VPN abides by a complete no-logging policy, allowing you to access all websites, social media platforms, and apps with no restrictions and without tracing your activity. Urban VPN encrypts your connection and allows you to replace your IP address with an IP address from the geolocation of your choice, so you can securely browse the internet without any concern that the government, your internet service provider, or any prying third party can monitor your online activities.
