Greetings

I request you to make your vpn service free for Iran during the revolution against the child-killing dictatorship of Molayan.

To provide the possibility of bypassing filtering for the people of Iran. Currently, the possibility of international payments is closed for us, but we will release it soon.

Friendly help is not forgotten.

Thanks a lot

    Hello @Bahram and thank you for your message.

    The restriction of service occurred in connection to the export restrictions that are governing Bitdefender under General License D-1 issued by the U.S.*

    *Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) under the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (“ITSR”).

    Under the U.S. regulations, Bitdefender shall not directly or indirectly through channel partners sell and support services to any customers that meet the following broad definition of the “Government of Iran” in Section 560.304 of the ITSR. Compliance with the export restriction is extremely important to our company, therefore as part of our ongoing efforts to comply with export control regulations, we have made the decision to suspend our services.

    If you have questions or concerns, please contact ethics@bitdefender.com 

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards

    On September 23, 2022, OFAC issued Iran General License (GL) D-2 to further support the provision of communication tools to ordinary Iranians and assist in their efforts to resist repressive internet censorship and surveillance tools deployed by the Iranian government. GL D-2, which supersedes GL D-1, both expands and clarifies the authorizations in GL D-1 and section 560.540 of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR 560 (ITSR), with respect to the exportation and reexportation, directly or indirectly, from the United States or by a U.S. person, of certain software and services incident to the exchange of communications over the internet. See FAQ 344 for additional information on how the authorizations in GL D-2 compare to section 560.540 of the ITSR.

    Since GL D-1 was issued on February 7, 2014, the types of software and services that support communication over the internet have changed. To reflect technological developments in communication-related software and services since the issuance of GL D-1 (including in cloud-based services), OFAC issued GL D-2 to expand and clarify the range of U.S. software and services available to Iranians under OFAC’s sanctions program. For example, GL D-2 explicitly authorizes certain types of software and services for exportation or reexportation to Iran that are incident to communications over the internet, including cloud-based software and services.
