    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I need a VPN in South Africa?

    If you are visiting South Africa, using a VPN ensures that you can still access all your favorite content from back home that may not be available online in South Africa. Using a VPN also hides your online activity from the ISP you use in South Africa, and protects you from leaking your IP address when torrenting files over a P2P network.

    Is VPN legal in South Africa?

    Using a VPN is completely legal in South Africa, as long as you are not using it to conduct any illegal activities. A VPN is just another cybersecurity tool, so you cannot get in trouble with the authorities in South Africa for using a VPN.

    Can I connect to South African VPN servers for free?

    We do not operate free servers in South Africa, so to connect to a VPN server in South Africa you need to upgrade to a paid plan. If you prefer, you can instead connect to free servers in the United States, Netherlands, and Japan using our Free plan.
