I want to buy books and movies from sites that are only specific to certain areas. I want to pay but I can't. When I use VPN I can access those page and buy. Sites like hotstar, popcornflix, etc. Is it haram to use VPN, since I ain't pirating, I am buying.
The VPN is a private network which you use to enter restricted blogs in your country.
Firstly it's halal because you do not violate the sanctities of others and the site or server is provided to you free of charge or from the owner of your own.
If you want to know judgement about its use taken from what its use for, In some countries, pornographic websites are blocked by government for your use In this cases it become Haram, because it used for haram this is another situation, another situation when the government prevents access important sites such as study, communication sites, or even important religious sites, because they differ with another country or with another religion. In this case it becomes permissible and may become obligatory.
The conclusion the Govern on it from what its use for and Allah know.
