Hello. I need a VPN to unlock Google because Google is blocked in my country. I am translator and need lots of exact information from Google. Most useful information is not available on other search engines. I really need Google services. Please suggest a suitable one for me. Thank you.
Google services are very popular in many countries around the world, such as United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia etc. Google browser, search engine, email and other services are widely used. However, Google has been blocked in some countries and areas. People in China, Iran, and Congo can’t use google search engine, thus they are not able to access useful search results. People who use Gmail in their countries can’t check Gmail when traveling in those countries. That is very inconvenient. Hence, a useful VPN is needed to unblock Google. With a VPN, you can bypass the national firewall and use Google services freely no matter where you are. A VPN is a virtual private network that basically reroutes all of your traffic via a secure tunnel and encrypts it along the way. By doing so, you are able to unblock Google Search and all other banned sites in China as long as you are connected to the VPN server. Others and the firewall will not be able to detect and spy on your online activities in this case.
Governments of some countries block Google for different reasons. In China, the government blocks Google to control the flow of information, not allowing them to view some, videos and articles etc. Google has been blocked in Ethiopia to avoid university exam leakage. Pakistan banned Google because an anti-Islam film that was not taken down by Google. In Iran, Google has been banned since 2009. Google services have been banned in Congo since 19 October 2015. They blocked Google services for political reasons. Of course, there are much more similar countries and regions. In other words, people in those places can’t use Google services in a traditional way no matter you are a foreigner or local people there. Therefor, you need a VPN to unblock Google if would like to use Google search engine, Google Play Store, Gmail and other popular and useful services.
As we all know, Google ranks search results based on the authenticity and practicability. At the same time, many search engines rank results according to the advertisement fee. Therefore, not all of the search results are reliable. Some of the results even have nothing to do with what you want. Instead, they only are ads. If you need exact and reliable information on the Internet, it is wise to use Google search engine.
A VPN not only helps you bypass the firewall, it also speeds up your Internet connection while visiting websites supported by Google. When using an IP of VPN service, you are just like a local user on Google. Your network will be very fast.

Before you purchase a VPN, you ought to figure to which one is reliable and what kind of VPN you need. Remember that you need a suitable VPN to unblock Google.
Once you get a good VPN, you should learn how to make it work. Some VPN servers provide guides about how to use VPN on different devices while some do not. Therefore, you can setup the VPN connection step by step by yourself on your device by following the provided setup guides. Or, you can download and install a VPN app off the Internet on your device instead. VPN apps are available on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices. After you run the VPN app, you need to choose the VPN server you would like to connect to. Once the VPN connection is established, all your traffic is encrypted.
