The new law on VPN and anonymizers entered into force

On November 1 the law restricting usage of VPN and anonymizers entered into force.

It is aimed at access restriction to the forbidden websites. Since circumvention of blockings is possible via proxy servers allowing accessing websites from Roskomnadzor’s black list, the Federal Agency obliges the developers to stop providing access to the forbidden websites; otherwise, these services will be blocked. The new law also imposes an obligation for the search engines to exclude links to the blocked websites from their search results. It is also reported that software for blocking circumvention will be removed from Google Play and App Store.
