VPN for China

Recent news reports from mainland China have been disconcerting as “increased censorship” towards VPN services seems to have reached the new heights.

Many VPN services and protocols continue to receive extra scrutiny behind the GreatFirewall of China. Most recently, preparations for WWII memorial parade (Mid- September) sparked a new wave of efforts  to  prevent citizens from viewing foreign content. Authorities there claim the content is blocked for the protection of Chinese people, as they deem censored content inappropriate.

The blocked services include popular communication services like Facebook and Google (incl., several online gaming sites, news sites and website sections mentioning certain words and concepts. An estimate of 18,000 websites are blocked in mainland China.

This is very stressful to both the expats, who rely heavily on communication via blocked sites and web services, travellers to China who would like to check their social accounts or follow their local news, and of course, the mainland China residents, who wish to gain access to the uncensored version of the world wide web.

Nevertheless, NordVPN is relentless in finding a solution to bing internet freedom to people anywhere they are. Please visit our Tutorial for Unlocking the Internet in China:
