Why can’t I get on Instagram?

With over a billion users, Instagram is one of the most popular social networking sites in the world. However, certain countries do block Instagram, as their governments want to control what images are shared.

Offices and schools might also block access to Instagram, depriving you of valuable inspiration and research material. And depending on where you live, Instagram’s music feature may not be fully functional.

How does an Instagram VPN work?

A VPN, or virtual private network, encrypts your network traffic and gives you a new IP address. Because ExpressVPN has servers in 160 different locations, it can give your smartphone a foreign IP address. If the IP address is in a country where Instagram isn’t blocked, suddenly you’ll be able to access it.
