Unblock LinkedIn – Russia Bans Social Network

Internet censorship is commonplace in Russia. Social network LinkedIn has been banned by Russian regulator Roskomnadzor. You can unblock LinkedIn with a VPN.

“Unblock LinkedIn” is trending on Google! Russia started introducing laws in 2014 that require social networks to use Russian web servers only to store any personal data of Russian citizens. November 2016 is the first time the law has been applied to a US social network. You will now need to use a VPN to unblock LinkedIn in Russia.
