VPN downloads saw a 405% rise in 12 months since the porn ban by the Indian government

Clearly, the porn ban has not worked at all in India. How do we know this? Well, according to Top10VPN, the number of VPN (Virtual Private Network) downloads grew a staggering 405% in the 12 months since the porn ban was enforced. The data was analysed from Apple's App Store as well as the Google Play Store.

As reported by Quartz, the Indian government had banned 827 porn websites such as Pornhub, xvideos and xhamster. At first, there was some outcry, mostly from porn websites who went on to circumvent the ban by changing their URLs. Pornhub.com went on to become Pornhub.net and so on and so forth. But the Indian government got wise to this and banned these alternate URLs as well.

But, you stopped people from watching porn now can you? Many other countries and organizations have tried banning porn and it honestly, worked worked out too well for them. And, Indians are no different. According to Top10VPN, it was seen that VPN downloads was at moving at a steady increase of 66% on average. Apparently, Google searches for the term VPN also spiked immediately after the ban was announced.

Not all Indians have jumped onto the VPN bandwagon and have just started using sites that have been affected by the ban such as Spankbang.com and RedPorn.com.
