Is it legal to use a VPN in China?

Post by ccc »

Knows anyone, is it legal to use a VPN in China? Just in case of mobile phone scanning on the China border.
Thanks in advance.

Don't think there is a hard rule that you cannot use a VPN in China. But law's can de soft, to the governments advantage.

I wouldn't be too nervous, don't think vpn's for foreigners are too much of an issue. At worst you have to delete it. So make sure you have a not blocked method to communicate with home base. Smart even when vpn is not blocked, from time to time vpns get thwarted, so even the good ones might have trouble time too time. A payed one might be a better choice than a free one.

My experiences are pre pandemic.

Thanks.

Here are all the countries where the government is trying to ban VPNs.

Btw I didn't know that is strictly prohibited in Oman.
