Access any app and stay anonymous while surfing the internet in New Zealand
Surf the internet in total freedom without the fear of being blocked or detected with our New Zealand 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 New Zealand
Internet access is widely available in New Zealand, arriving to the country in 1989 for the use of university students. Currently, almost 90 percent of the country’s population is using the internet, and more than half have active social media accounts.
The internet in New Zealand is free, and the government does not control or monitor internet activity. The only exception is The Department of Internal Affairs’ (DIA) internet filter, a system for filtering websites in order to prevent access to certain material. The Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act of 1993 (FVPC Act) defines different types of “objectionable content,” although eventually restrictions were limited to the exploitation of children. The filter prevents internet users from accessing illegal websites and is active on most internet service providers in New Zealand.
Like so many other countries, New Zealand has been having a tumultuous discussion about the detection and prevention of online copyright infringement. In accordance with country regulations, streaming services such as YouTube and Netflix, use geo-restrictions and block certain content in the region. These restrictions can be lifted using a VPN connection to change the IP address.
Another concern are hackers and online scammers. Cyber criminals are looking for vulnerable public Wi-Fi hotspots to access unprotected data. Public Wi-Fi connections are abundant in the country and are often not encrypted and have very poor security. Therefore, Kiwi Internet users should use a VPN service to protect their data and maintain their privacy and anonymity online.
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.
A VPN is an essential security tool for protecting your online privacy. Without a VPN, your internet activity can be easily intercepted and viewed by other people. This includes your browsing history, downloaded files, online banking details, and passwords.
Even worse, everything can be traced back to your device through your Internet Protocol (IP) address. Your IP address reveals your physical location and can be used to track you down in real-life. It’s like sending postcards through the mail — anyone can read the message and see your name and address.
But when you’re connected to a VPN, your internet activity is encrypted and your real IP address is masked. No one can see who you are or what you’re doing, not even Internet Service Providers (ISPs), governments, or hackers.
Instead of postcards, you’re now sending an ultra-secure private message that only the intended recipient can read. There’s no sender address or name. If someone else tries to peek, they’ll just see a jumble of encrypted information.
