For hose of you who live in China, you know that you aren’t allowed to access some of your favorite web sites. The Golden Shield Project (Chinese: 金盾工程; pinyin: jīndùn gōngchéng), commonly known as the Great Firewall of China, is the entity responsible for blocking these sites. The escalation of the Chinese government’s effort to neutralize critical online opinion came after a series of large anti-Japanese, anti-pollution and anti-corruption protests, many of which were organized or publicized using instant messaging services, chat rooms, and text messages. The size of the Internet police in China is estimated at more than 30,000.
Critical comments appearing on Internet forums, blogs, and major portals such as Sohu and Sina are usually erased within minutes. Actually, access to the New York Times was briefly re-blocked as of 20 December 2008, although it has been accessible for the first months of 2009 as of 17 May. The Chinese-language service of the BBC News is still blocked, and in September 2009, with the upcoming celebration of the 60th anniversary of the PRC, a lot of sites, such as Facebook, YouTube and various blogs are restricted and blocked, and many oft-used free proxy servers don’t work anymore. Recently, in February 2011, the social network site LinkedIn was also blocked.
TorGuard gives you a 20+ IP addresses in 6 countries. With these addresses you are anonymous, your traffic is encrypted, and you are protected. Encrypted VPN privacy means that your surfing cannot be monitored in China (or anywhere else). You can surf the Internet unobserved, write emails or blogs as well as exchange data or files. All your internet traffic is protected.
Additionally, if you use Skype, you will be able to use the international version. It is a known fact that the Chinese version of Skype permits monitoring of your conversations. If you use TorGuard, the local authorities no longer know that you are making an IP call and therefore cannot block or listen to it. Your privacy on the phone is assured.
All of the social web sites like MySpace and Facebook will be unblocked too.
