Sri Lanka Social Media Ban

Multiple social media have been blocked in Sri Lanka over the last week. This follows Buddhist mobs attacking Muslim homes, businesses and mosques. The terror had been coordinated using social media which was the causality of the ban. Yesterday Viber was unblocked. The government is in talks with social media firms on possibilities to regulate extremist content.

Following the social media ban, many users used VPN services. Few days back I learnt that connection to even VPN services have been blocked.

I would like to make this the opportunity to ask users new to VPN services to use reputed VPNs for security reasons. I have been using expressVPN for a long time for business pouposes. They are known not to keep logs about our activity which is important.
