Originally published at: http://www.myce.com/news/china-force-providers-block-vpns-february-82237/ The Chinese government is reportedly going to force ISPS to block virtual private networks (VPN) from February 2018. The VPNs are used by Chinese internet users to bypass blocks from the Chinese government. E.g. Facebook, Twitter and Youtube are blocked in the country.
I figure this was coming surprised it was late as it was
Maybe in twenty years, they'll realize that they need to block TOR as well.
