I was active on Twitter and other social media to oppose our totalitarian government. Back then, I never felt safe when I was online, but I had to do what I had to do <...> I trusted your service in hiding my footprint and not letting anyone find out my true identity. You gave me more courage to express my voice freely. I wanted you to know that what I did might have been a small step towards freedom, but you helped me and what you did matters.

First and foremost, I would like to sincerely thank the team for granting me Emergency VPN during the crisis and heavy restriction of information freedom imposed by the illegal military regime in Myanmar. I’m using Emergency VPN on a daily basis to write and share content to spread awareness and news and to constantly keep in touch with beloved people in and out of the country. Again, thank you NordVPN for providing such helpful assistance in the face of unprecedented challenges.

Khant Thura

Thanks a million for letting me use Nord Emergency VPN. I'm a University Student and also a member of Mandalay Technological University Students' Union (MTUSU), a student organization fighting against dictatorship. The military is now attacking press freedom in Myanmar. So we, Myanmar citizens, now have to take the role of journalists. To report such ruthless crimes to the world, we are depending on social media. We are now sharing information and making protest plans online. I believe NordVPN is an organization that respects every individuals' human rights and supports our citizens. So I sent an emergency request to you and I got it. I really appreciate your awareness and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
