How We Choose the Best VPNs for China
Accessing an uncensored internet in China can be a tricky task. The Chinese government blocks 1,000's of websites including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and most popular news site.
The only way to get around this aptly nicknamed "Great Firewall of China" is to use a VPN, however, not all VPNs will work in China.
In order to find the best VPNs for China, we first had to narrow our search to which VPNs will work in China and from there we were able to come up with our "Top 5" list.
From there we asked ourselves the following questions:
- Does this VPN have servers close to China, like Hong Kong for example?
- Can the VPN be purchased or setup from within China?
- Is the security strong enough to allow for browsing the entire internet without being detected by the Chinese Authorities?
- Is there are short term subscription option for someone who is only going to China for a week or two?
