Internet access in Morocco has increased in recent years, mainly in and around urban areas. The internet penetration rate grew to nearly 62 percent in 2017. Currently, Morocco has more than 20 million Internet users, and almost fifty percent of the general population are on social media platforms. In recent years, the Moroccan government did not block any political, social, or religious websites. Social media and streaming sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter are free and available in the country. Even opposition or minority groups websites are accessible.
The last instance site blocking occurred in 2013, when the government ordered the blocking of a news outlet named Lakome for supposedly condoning terrorism. Even if the government does not actively block online content, legislation allowing surveillance and censorship was introduced. As reported by Human Rights Watch in 2016, Moroccan authorities restricted the right to peaceful protest and free expression through drafting several new laws. The government often charges and prosecutes both online media sites that criticizes the government or the king of Morocco.
Another internet access issue in Morocco are geo-restrictions. In 2016, Morocco was ranked the “worst country” in the world for Netflix users. The content package in Morocco had a total of 157 shows and movies, the lowest in the world. Netflix, like many other streaming services, uses geo-restrictions to block certain IP addresses, protecting copyright and broadcasting agreements. The only way to get better content and stay safe online in using Virtual Private Networks (VPN).
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.
