As we know Facebook is banned in China. The Chinese government controls Internet content and restricts, deletes, or bans content it deems is not in the interest of the state. According to a government transcript released in the fall of 2014, Lu Wei, director of China’s State Internet Information Office, said that “foreign Internet companies entering China must at the base level accord to Chinese laws and regulations. First, you can’t damage the national interests of the country. Second is you cannot hurt the benefits of Chinese consumers. If China’s laws and regulations are respected, we welcome all of the world’s Internet companies to enter the Chinese market.” These tight controls imposed have resulted in the ban of foreign social media sites, like Facebook.
Can’t use Facebook in China on LG phone? How to do?
The best way to access Facebook in China on LG phone is to use VPN service which can help you get around Chinese internet censorship. VPN is a secure and encrypted network, created over the public internet connection to enable the users hide their identity over the worldwide web. It has a strong ability to bypass geo-restrictions and help internet users to access any abroad websites successfully. VPN server provides privacy by hiding your internet activity from your ISP and government, allows you to escape from censorship controlled by school, work, your ISP, or government, enables you to “geo-spoof” your location in order to access services unfairly denied to you based on your geographical location (or when you are on holiday), even protects you against hackers when using a public WiFi hotspot and let you freely P2P download in safety.
How to Choose a Best VPN?
• 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
Manual guide to access Facebook in China on LG phone?
There are 3 methods to access Facebook in china.
Method 1: Add VPN network from Settings on your phone directly (The premise is that you already have your own server IP to cross China’s firewall)
Step 1. Networks tab >Tethering & networks > VPN >Basic VPN > Add Basic VPN profile.Tap Add VPN network, then enter the VPN network information to match your corporate network.
Please refer to your network administrator for protocol related information regarding your corporate network(s)
Step 2. Enter the VPN network according to the security details you have obtained from your network administrator. When finished, tap Save.
Note: The network name is the name of the network the VPN software is running on – that’s the type of VPN that would be running on your office network. You can get that from the network administrator – along with any password, username and anything lse you need – if the company is allowing you to use your phone to connect to the office network with your phone. If not, you can’t.
Method 2: Use Shadowsocks. Shadowsocks is one of the most stable way to use google. Not only that but you can use Shadowsocks and ProxyCAP64 (They are both free) as proxy tools to play LOL, Hearthstone, CSGO,etc. with your friends in your hometown. It’s opensource, so you can get and use it for free. The only cost you have to pay is to rent a VPS (Virtual private server).
Step 1. Download a Shadowsocks application from app store or website on your LG phone.
Step 2. After installation is complete, the script prompts the following
Congratulations, shadowsocks install completed!
Your Server IP:your_server_ip
Your Server Port:your_server_port
Your Local IP:
Your Local Port:
Your Encryption Method:aes-256-cfb
Note: Be sure it’s status should be “Running”, if not click “Start”. Though it’s very easy, but I do recommend you to build it manually. It will be more useful to you if you want to build other services on your VPS.If you want to use Shadowsocks on your mobile phone, Please contact us tell you how to.
Method 3: Buy a VPN app service
Step 1. Start with setting up a VPN account.
There are a large number of VPN service providers to choose from, many of which are brilliant; some of which are very flawed. It’s a safe bet to assume that the cheapest/free VPN providers are not actually giving you the performance or privacy-protection you want. So you can choose a paid VPN service, go to the provider’s website, choose the plan that best fits your commitment and budget preference, then process payment and confirm your account setup via the email you receive.
Step 2. Then install the VPN software onto the device(s) you want to access Instagram in China.
You will notice in your account confirmation email that you also receive a link to download the VPN software. Click on this link and you’ll be directed to the main download area of the website.
Step 3. Next, open the VPN software then connect to a server location where Instagram is not blocked (for example, a US-based server)
The installed software will launch automatically, so let that happen and your next step is to go ahead and connect to the VPN through a server location of your choice. This is the important part in this whole solution, because based on the server location you choose — your “physical location” will change accordingly to reflect this (i.e. your IP address will change). Thus, you want to make sure to connect to a server that is located outside of China.
Step 4. Once connected, you will be able to access Instagram in China
