Get a VPN.
Re: How To Access Google And Other Social Media From China by AndreyBailey: 11:20am On Jan 24
Access to Google, twitter, youtube, and other social media in China is impossible without VPN. I would recommend choosing any VPN service wisely because most of the vpn software reduce the internet speed and also you may face connectivity related issues. I had faced similar issues before switching to Cyberghost. Actually, I read few reviews of top-ranked vpn services from few sites like : https://www.allbestvpn.com/ https://www.reviewsdir.com/vpn-reviews/ and made a comparison and then I selected the better vpn for me. Having good features, much better speed in reasonable price is the best bet for me till now.

You can use VPN and use it when you want. I was using https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/en/extras/personal-vpn-server when I need to look through some closed websites or to watch a video. Free VPN is good option when you need to use it only once but I prefer to use paid VPN. It gives the opportunity to get access to closed websites, to watch videos without any freezing or lags. It's very convenient I think. There is a good price on this VPN, so it might be interesting for people who are watching different video or just want to surf the web without any problems at all.

Most of the sites are blocked by China.
There's only one option to access those sites:

You need to have China government approved VPN.


What is a VPN? (https://www.vpntesting.com/what-is-a-vpn)

VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to use an encrypted connection
and pass the great firewall of China.

In 2018. China banned most of the VPNs. However as there's no list of these,
an independent researcher did a study of VPNs in China https://www.vpntesting.com/vpn-in-china,
that shows which ones work, which doesn't.

Keep in mind that you should install it before arriving on the Mainland.

When using VPN is it n necessary you subscribe for data from your network provider?

Yes. You will need to have access to data, then on the VPN (The use of VPN is illegal in China sha)

Your claim is false. Please link to the paragraph that says VPN use is illegal in China.
China doesn't allow unapproved VPNs, approved VPNs are perfectly legal.

Please check your claims before posting.

Well, yes you need Wifi or Data (I think you are referring to mobile data) just like in any other country.
VPN just provides a secure tunnel between you and the website. Network provider sees how much
bandwidth you use and when, but not exactly what sites you visit.
PS: In China, some approved VPNs might co-operate with the government though

Ok now I understand. Are you in China ? I came across Express VPN. Which VPN is the best?

the use of vpn is not illegal but not allowed, reasons why they built the great firewall, you just have to find a strong vpn that can penetrate the wall, sadly only a few VPN can

I was in china last year for few weeks. I used VPN all through. I downloaded and installed here before going.
Re: How To Access Google And Other Social Media From China by adam66356: 10:47am On Jul 11
You can try to use VPN to visit the required websites. I can recommend https://rusvpn.com/en/. It is rather good and you will not have any problems using it.
Re: How To Access Google And Other Social Media From China by Malcolm101: 11:50pm On Jul 11
Stop being a fool. You don't come at someone like a senseless idiot.

The Chinese government restricted the access to certain sites because they don't want their citizens to access them. Accessing them via any other means makes it illegal.

Because you or someone you know have been using a vpn to bypass their firewall doesn't make it legal. Just like downloading music off the net for free via some shady sites is a criminal offense in most countries. The fact that you have been doing it doesn't make it legal.
