Why were the servers in india removed?

Dear VPN.lat users, due to new regulations in India we have made the decision to remove the servers located in the mentioned country.

The Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-in) that is under the control of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of the Asian country, has issued a set of controversial instructions which, due to the fact that the security and privacy of their data is not recommended to continue with servers in that country.

We appreciate you understand the situation and that it is something completely alien to us. We hope to find a solution soon to bring the servers. In the following days the location of India will disappear in our app.

New feature: Split tunneling on Android

For a long time, many of you have requested the split tunneling function to be able to select which applications on your phone work through the VPN and which do not. After a lot of work today we released version 3.8.3.6.1 which includes this new feature.

To configure the applications that will NOT go through the VPN and that will be excluded from VPN.lat click on the gear icon:

After selecting the gear you will get a list of the applications you have installed. You must select those that you want to exclude from the VPN. Once the selections click on OK and that’s it.

If this option still does not appear, go to the Play Store and check that you have the latest version of VPN.lat installed.

We hope you like this feature. We continue working to improve the functions of VPN.lat

How to block spam calls on Android and iOS?

How to block spam calls on Android?

1 – On your device, open the Google Phone App.

2 – Tap More options (3 dots right upper quadrant) > Settings  > Spam and Call Screen.

3 – Turn See caller & spam ID on or off.

4 – Optional: To block spam calls on your phone, turn on Filter suspected spam calls. You won’t get missed call or voicemail notifications, but you’ll still see filtered calls in your call history and be able to check any voicemail you receive.

How to block spam calls on iOS?

You may do more than merely send a call to voicemail in silence. You can easily eliminate the majority of spam calls you receive using a phone spam filtering program, even if they’re from unique faked numbers. You’ll need to get an app from the App Store, which includes Robo Shield or Robokiller, among others. These programs usually need a monthly subscription charge, but it can be worth it to save your sanity for a few dollars a month.

Open Settings and select Phone after installing such an app. A new option will appear: Call Blocking & Identification. After that, enable your call filtering application by tapping it. It’s worth noting that the program may have a few setup steps of its own, but it’ll walk you through them when you install it.

Advantages of buying flights with a VPN for Android and iOS

One of the reasons you might wish to compare different pages of different airline companies is to get the greatest price when you want to go. There are currently a number of airlines and comparison sites that can assist you with this chore. However, keep in mind that the prices indicated in the initial search have nothing to do with the prices proposed in the subsequent searches.

Following that, we’ll go through the most essential benefits of installing a VPN on your Android or iOS phone in order to acquire the best flight pricing.

Anonymous price inquiries

The prices of flight pages that are consulted using the standard approach leave a trail of your information. They provide details such as your IP address, geography, currency, social status, payment method, and other personal information. They also tell the number of times the same itinerary has been consulted and the user’s interest in that search to the company.


Airlines use all of this data to evaluate, using algorithms, what price a consumer is willing to pay. It is quite fascinating to utilize a VPN for Android or iOS to avoid different web pages from acquiring data from your search behavior.
By establishing a virtual private network on your mobile device, you will be able to browse anonymously, allowing you to consult the many airline or metasearch engine web pages as many times as you desire. The price you’ll be given will always be the best one available.

Searches from other countries

The airlines offer a range of prices for their itineraries taking into account the country of origin from which the search is made.
Many times, the prices of flights from Asian countries are substantially less expensive than those from Europe.

However, because airlines recognize the browser being used and give costs for the geographic location in which it is located, they tend to restrict queries from other nations. However, because airlines recognize the browser being used and give costs for the geographic location in which it is located, they tend to restrict queries from other nations. This makes it impossible to compare costs from different places. There is, nevertheless, the possibility of consulting fares from other nations without informing the airline.

It is possible to connect using the IP of other nations that have considerably more competitive flight costs in their catalog by using an Android or iOS VPN system. For instance, places in Ethiopia, Myanmar, and Bangladesh, among others, can be used to dramatically cut the cost of your flight. In this scenario, success entails comparing prices by selecting from a variety of VPN for Android or iOS servers located in various locations. You may choose from servers in 60 + countries across the world if you use VPN.lat

You might want to give a VPN a try now that you’ve learned about the several benefits it can provide while purchasing airline tickets from Android. To check all the benefits for yourself, simply write down the original price of the tickets on a piece of paper, conduct a standard search, then double-check the price using an Android VPN.

10 countries that banned VPN usage

Some may be surprised to read that VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) are actually prohibited in some countries. Although the number of countries that outright prohibit the use of VPNs is small, others strictly regulate the industry. Here are the list:

Belarus
For years, the Belarusian government has worked to limit its citizens’ access to the outside Internet. It banned both Tor and VPN services in 2015, but it appears that Belarusians have found ways to get around the technological and legal barriers.

China
China may have gone the furthest in banning and blocking VPNs and Tor of any government. The Chinese government requires all VPNs to be licensed. Those who aren’t will have their accounts canceled if they’re in the country, or blocked if they’re situated elsewhere. China is one of the only governments in the world that has complete control over all local Internet service providers, and they employ deep packet inspection technology.

Iran
Iran attempted to prohibit access to VPNs based in other countries in 2013, allowing only VPN providers that were regulated and registered with the Iranian government to operate. While it is illegal to sell or promote VPNs, and persons can be prosecuted for using one, VPN use by citizens and even government personnel is still fairly prevalent.

Iraq
In order to combat ISIS’ online presence, the Iraqi government has gone to extremes, prohibiting not only VPN services and social media, but also implementing nationwide Internet outages. Despite the fact that ISIS is no longer a threat, the country’s severe Internet prohibitions remain in place.

Oman
In 2010, Oman approved legislation prohibiting the use of VPN services. Anyone who breaks this law faces a fine of 500 rials (approximately $1,300). Companies can request for a permit to use a VPN that has been approved by the government. If a corporation is found to be infringing the law, it will be fined 1,000 rials.

Russia
Russia has taken a number of legal steps to restrict free speech and information access both within its borders and online. The Yarovaya Law was passed by the Russian Duma in 2016, requiring VPN services to register with the authorities and log their users’ internet activity. Another rule passed by the Duma in 2017 required licensed VPNs to block their users’ access to certain websites that the Russian government had banned. Those who did not comply were subjected to bans.

Turkey
In 2016, Erdogan’s regime began restricting VPN and Tor services. Turkey is now deploying deep packet inspection techniques to detect and block VPN and Tor traffic, similar to China. In Turkey, the rule of law has collapsed, and using a VPN connection can flag you as a person of interest to government enforcement. In Turkey, though, VPN use is extremely common.

Uganda
Ugandans have increased their use of VPN services in response to the recently enacted social media tax. The Ugandan government retaliated by ordering that VPN services be blocked by local Internet service providers. In Uganda, there is presently no legislation prohibiting the use of VPNs, although this is changing.

United Arab Emirates
The UAE updated its rules in 2016, making the use of a VPN service to “commit a crime or prevent its detection” illegal by up to 2 million dirham ($540,000) in fines and temporary jail. While VPNs have their benefits, the UAE has explicitly banned VoIP conversations and a number of websites, including certain French TV stations and Netflix. It is against the law to use a VPN to access a restricted website.

Venezuela
Earlier this year, Venezuela’s major Internet service provider attempted, ostensibly on government orders, to prohibit the usage of Tor and VPN services.

How to fix the error when updating to version 3.8.3.5

Hello dear user, a few days ago we launched version 3.8.3.5 of vpn.lat for Android and some users have reported that at the time of updating the application has stopped working when they want to enter a server as shown in the following screenshot:

If this happens to you, the quickest way to solve it is to delete vpn.lat from your phone and reinstall it from Play Store. This is because in the update it caches some data and that causes the error.
