How do we ensure that the VPN itself is not blocked?

It is crucial that a VPN service changes its IP address regularly. Internet service providers and government agencies may otherwise realise that anyone with this IP address is using a VPN service.

This in itself is not a problem, since the connection is still encrypted and nobody can see the online activities. However, some restrictive governments may still block the VPN’s IP address altogether, preventing anyone from connecting to it.

Streaming services such as Netflix whether IP addresses are being used by multiple users, and may block them. Netflix doesn’t like anyone to circumvent the geo-restrictions it has put in place.

This is why Tegant VPN regularly changes its IP addresses, in order to remain as anonymous as possible and to protect the online privacy of its users in the best way it can. This process is called IP recycling.


On top of IP recycling, we have now developed the ‘Safe Mode’ to prevent blocking of our VPN service. Read more about it here.
