Gboard has everything you love about Google Keyboard—speed and reliability, Glide Typing, voice typing, and more—plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and share, right from your keyboard. But you can’t access Gboard in China. Because the Great Firewall of China is an awesome tool in which the Chinese government has specially built to prevent accessing the whole content of the internet for those who are living in China. This Great Firewall is formidable as well as extensive, but it is possible to get around it by everyone. Those who are looking forward to work and live in China cannot be able to access any of the Google’s services such as Gmail, Gboard, Gchat, search, etc. One of the simplest ways to get around the Great Firewall of China is making the servers within China. This means that the encryption of your internet traffic must takes places as fast as it leaves your computer. Another great way to encrypt your traffic is using a VPN provider who will help you to encrypt all of your online traffic as quickly as you connect to it.

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.

1. Security
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.

2. Anonymity
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.

Can I Use a Free VPN Service? Is Using VPN Safe?

If you want serious privacy, free VPN services are a big no-no, and not just because they willingly cooperate with authorities. For example, Zenmate requires that you register and send them your email. The fate of your email after it is totally obscure. As you may understand, if you explicitly reveal your email, no anonymity is ever possible. Free VPN services are popular, but it has its price: too many people use them, while their resources are limited (due to their being free). The result is very slow – and sometimes even impossible – Internet surfing. This is aggravated by the fact that your ISP can limit or throttle your VPN traffic, which is often done in the most unexpected way. virtually all free VPNs have so many serious issues that they are utterly incapable of any serious work. They keep logs (records of users’ activities), their connection is unstable and prone to drops, high speed is by no means guaranteed. Some ISPs hunt for free VPNs – and their users too – to block them. User agreements of such services are often disadvantageous for users, which the latter may not even know. These agreements may contain such cunning clauses as handing out other services logins and passwords or the right to sell your data to third parties. Infecting your machine with viruses and other malware is far from impossible. There were cases when VPN services stole their users’ bank credentials and other financial data.

VPNs can be very secure if setup and used correctly. Most VPNs worth their salt use at least 3DES (pronounced triple DES) or AES as encryption of the traffic between your laptop and wherever the endpoint VPN device that you are connecting to. There are several options to access your company’s network or add security to a wireless connection while travelling. People need to understand that VPN app is not a game or calendar app. The VPN servers infrastructure, support team, real-time security analytic need to be paid for. VPN service with free or charge model would be the most likely data leakage!

Manual guides to access Gboard in china on Samsung Galaxy S7?

There are 3 methods to access Gboard 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 Password:your_password
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 Gboard 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 Gboard 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 Gboard in China
