The Chinese government is taking further steps to ensure control over the Internet. By virtue of the latest decree, VPNs were banned there. You can use them only with the consent of the government.
China has long taken steps to completely control the internet. Over the past few years, they have been able to effectively block in their country access to Western sites such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and many web services including Gmail.
But the government is not enough. Its representatives are well aware that citizens can circumvent these restrictions through VPNs, so they have officially been banned. From now on, the use of foreign proxies will be considered a crime, unless a given VPN receives government approval of the activity.
New rules have already entered into force and will remain in effect until March 31 next year. So far, it is not clear exactly how the government intends to enforce the new legislation, but it may be assumed that the authorities will only target companies that provide VPNs to ordinary citizens, leaving international corporations alone, leaving the solution to their employees alone.
