According to Egypt’s New Anti-Cyber Crime Law; VPN Users in Egypt Might Face Jail Time

For all you VPN users out there, beware because it seems like the Egyptian government is setting a keen eye to fight cybercrime and apparently; you are breaking the law.

President El-Sisi has recently signed into law the Anti-Cyber and Information Technology Crimes legislation. The law gives the Egyptian government the power to block any website they see is spreading false news, and they also do have the power to arrest the person, or people, handling it.

The law entitles that people who attempt to access the blocked websites, for example by using VPNs, can also be sentenced to 1 year in jail or a fine of up to EGP100,000.

So, we do recommend you stop using your VPN to access blocked websites.

WE SAID THAT: Thank god they didn’t mention anything about using VPN for Netflix!
