Chinese authorities are tightening internet censorship throughout the country as pro-democracy protests take place in Hong Kong. For the very first time it has now blocked the popular photo sharing platform Instagram in an effort to prevent this viral pro-democracy movement from spreading elsewhere within the country.
Other websites are also being affected if they appear to contain questionable keywords such as “tear gas”. Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of twitter is also being heavily censored along with China’s largest search engine Baidu. Websites operating from within mainland China are blocking any news coverage of the protests while citing the need to obey relevant “legal regulations and policies”.
China is no stranger to tight web censorship regulations, especially when political tensions arise. The most recent example of this came during the 25th anniversary of the Tianmen Square in June when all Google services were completely blocked off for many users. Popular US social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter are completely blocked off year round.
Unblock the web in China with Stealth VPN
Unblocking websites in China should be easy with any VPN service, right? Unfortunately, this is not true. In addition to heavy internet censorship imposed on ISP’s, websites, and bloggers, China’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) firewall is very successful at blocking or severely limiting all standard VPN protocols. For this reason it is important to make sure that your VPN provider will work within China.
TorGuard has engineered special “Stealth” connections that are guaranteed to bypass this DPI firewall and provide “invisible” VPN access anywhere within China. Stealth VPN options are provided to all clients at no additional charge and can be accessed by selecting a Stealth enabled server option as seen below:
