Internet use in China becomes increasingly difficult


Mia Ford, writer

China has one of the world’s most confining Internet restrictions.

The Great Firewall method that they use filters keywords and blocks foreign websites and apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and even Google.

Though the Chinese are not able to access these websites, the government gives full access to Chinese websites and apps.

Chinese authorities have effectively put up with the expanding of VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) which allows millions of people to unblock non-Chinese websites. Until now.

The removal of VPNs has been hard on the international workmen in China. From archaeologists all the way to international businessmen, many relied heavily on VPNs for access to the Internet.

Now Chinese cannot access vital information from other countries and in turn cannot fulfill their job duties.
