Why FREEDOME does not work in the United Arab Emirates and other Persian Gulf area countries


When residing in any of the Persian Gulf area countries (Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates), FREEDOME apps cannot connect to any of the FREEDOME VPN servers. Sometimes the VPN connection initially succeeds, but stops working soon after that.


The use of VPNs is restricted in the Persian Gulf area countries, and local Internet Service Providers block VPN connections in their networks. This prevents FREEDOME from working.


Due to the nature of the issue, we are unable to solve this.
