Total freedom to surf the web has to be a right no one should take from us. Sadly, as a Ugandan citizen, this is not the case. Uganda recently began a new social media tax that makes every citizen of the country pay 200 Ugandan Shillings daily to access social networks like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp. This started happening from July 1st, 2018 and you will agree with me that it cannot be seen as fair on those that call the country home. In this article, we explore a comprehensive list of the best VPN for Uganda to avoid social media tax.
My preferred choice in this list is none other than X-VPN. This app provides access to various locations, and you do not pay paying for the service you get. Surely, you should expect advertisement in the app, but to be frank, they scarcely pop up. You also get to enjoy 256-bit encryption, as long as you are a premium user. X-VPN is also great for downloading torrents, and that is something that is not supported by most VPN applications.
This is a popular VPN app. It lets you connect to a VPN, and browse safely from several locations. You get to choose to allow the application to decide on the most appropriate location to VPN from, or you can go for the location you think suits you the most.
