China has the most Internet users in the world today. And there are lots of the Internet restrictions in this country. Among blocked sites are such popular sites as Google services (including Gmail, Chrome, Google maps, Google docs and others) YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, VOIP services like Skype and Snapchat and tones of others popular resources. So if you are going to China, you need to care about your Internet freedom in advance.
The Chinese censorship authorities will block any site which they deem to contain material detrimental (even tangentially) to the Chinese Communist Party. The way they do this is by blocking at the IP address level. A crude tool indeed. Most websites in the world are hosted on Shared Hosting Accounts so if an IP address gets red flagged it could potentially impact hundreds of other sites hosted on the same server, using the same IP address. To create an analogy, it’s a bit like living in a shared house and one of the members is caught for being involved in illicit activities.
To access Chrome in China on your Samsung s7 you do not need any additional application of software. You can setup vpn connection on your device using systems features. This is much more secure than using any additional application.
What is a VPN and why should we care about it?
VPN creates a network that is private but virtual. It is private because it guarantees privacy inside the organization. It is virtual because it does not use real private WANs; the network is physically public but virtually private. It uses a technique known as tunneling to transfer data securely on the Internet to a remote access server on your workplace network.
VPN, to be simple, will route your IP address to a private address which in other countries or places, so once you link VPN service, your IP address will change. And meanwhile, the data transmission will be encrypted, hackers or other engineers cannot access to these encrypted data.
There’re several advantages that you can use a VPN service.
Change your IP, hide your real location, protect your online security especially when you are using public Wi-Fi, like coffee shop, hotel, airport and other places.
No one will know what you do if you connecting to a VPN service. No one will really detect it is you.
3. Unblock any
Internet freedom is all we want, but we are blocked by many websites and apps, especially in some countries, like China, Russia, Brazil and some other countries.
4. Access contents under School Wifi
Most schools block social media and some sensitive websites in school. They are not able to access Chrome, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Kik, Reddit and other platforms. But school cannot block freedom. VPN is a good choice.
How to Select a VPN Provider?
• Choosing a VPN Protocol is the first step to getting a smooth-running network which allows good browsing without hindrance. OpenVPN is the best to be used on a desktop or a laptop, IPsec/L2TP is generally used for the smartphones as they can be fussy. PPTP should be avoided because of its outdatedness. A good provider should be providing most of the protocol options.
• A provider should allow more than one device on a single account.
• A provider should also give many geo-locations options to make security stronger.
• A user has two options: Free VPN or Paid VPN. Free VPNs may look surprisingly giving a lot of benefits, but they should be avoided due to them being restricting and often can be spies of Government in a country like China. Paid VPNs are safer, and they will provide good results to the user.
And please note that free VPNs don’t work on high authority sites which are regionally blocked in some countries like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer etc.
we would not recommend to use a Free VPN for their iPhone to anyone. We don’t exactly know about VPN defender, but I have used some Free VPNs when I started using VPNs and realised Free VPNs have many drawbacks like:
1. Free VPNs are slow
2. They have few servers
3. The connection is slow and the client is not dedicated for every OS
4. Free VPN services keep logs so never recommended for Privacy and security
5. Free VPNs are not safe for Torrent Downloads
Guides to Access Chrome in China
Step 1: Download a VPN at first
A VPN is a network which lets the internet user change their IP address and make it seem like they are using the internet from a different region or even a different country from anywhere around the world. Most free VPNs have restrictions on how much data one can use in a day, and most of these free VPNs do not work properly in countries with so much of high internet security like China, so it is advised that one pays a monthly amount from their wallet and gets a higher volume bandwidth in the VPNs and can also use the connection properly.
Step 2: Choose between many options of VPNs
As there is a scarcity of properly usable internet websites and apps in China and people are trying to use them by hook or crook, there is a variety of VPNs that has been set up to provide the users of China to let them use the websites. One should do its research before downloading and installing a VPN and also keep the fact in mind that the government can take down any of these VPNs at any moment.
Step 3: Remember to download a VPN protocol
A VPN protocol is sort of a VPN host, and it is needed for letting a VPN connection work smoothly.
Step 4: Installing a VPN
After running a search on the web in China to download a VPN, one should be getting links to install it. Although sometimes a user can’t find a link to install the VPN they desire to install, and at those times, one should try downloading the files from atorrent.
Step 5: Running the program of VPN and also how to choose a country
Once installed, one should run the program of VPN. This is mostly same for all of the VPNs, though occasionally some interfaces are different. There one will be prompted and asked which country to choose, and one should choose a country where Google is not blocked and that way the VPN will set up the computer with a fake IP address which will look to be used from outside of China.
Video Guide Show You How to Access Chrome in China
How do you access Chrome in china? Your choices are basically using private proxies or a VPN network. We think the best way is choose a VPN. But you should get your own before you get there. Using VPN or other connections available through your business there may or may not be allowed and even if it is, it is probably being monitored. China doesn’t always just block things. And sometimes they just block words, phrases, or some search results. So your best best, is to do a new search right before you leave for a VPN that currently works or make sure the one you are using still works to avoid unnecessary trouble.
