Who is most likely to use VPNs and Proxy Servers?

Analyzing the demographics of this group shows some notable peaks. Firstly, men are 10% more likely than women to be going online via these tools. This trend holds true across all of the 32 markets we survey, but is especially pronounced in places like Argentina where men are 17% ahead of women.

Elsewhere, the younger age groups have a lead over their older counterparts, while VPN usage also rises in line with income and education levels.
