How does a VPN unblock Facebook?
ExpressVPN is a VPN service that hides your IP address and encrypts your traffic by routing it through secure VPN server locations that you choose when you connect.
For instance, if you choose a VPN server location in the U.S., you can sign in and use Facebook as if you were in the United States, no matter where you actually are in the world.
Why a Facebook VPN is better than a free proxy
It’s important to make the distinction between using a proxy and using a VPN. For one, VPNs typically provide much faster speeds and connections, as random proxy servers are usually choked with heavy traffic.
VPNs are also much more secure than random proxy networks, which may be free because they are selling your data to the highest bidder. With dedicated apps for every device, ExpressVPN lets you encrypt your network and access Facebook at home and on the go.
