China started blocking the OpenVPN protocol today around 2:30am CST, in their latest round of VPN-related blocking. VyprVPN users connecting out of China can switch to any other VyprVPN protocol to successfully connect, and we recommend switching to our proprietary Chameleon protocol which effectively defeats VPN blocking in China and around the world.
Increased Blocking & Censorship in China
China ramped up Internet censorship greatly in 2017, a trend which appears to be continuing into 2018. An all-out VPN ban is slated to take effect this February, with news circulating last week suggesting the ban could go into effect even earlier (this news does not appear to be true). In spite of the challenges, VyprVPN is proud to offer users in China access a way to bypass censorship and access an unrestricted Internet. Due to our proprietary Chameleon technology and dedicated team (we operate 100% without third parties!), we are continually able to bypass blocks and maintain and restore service to our users more consistently and quickly than other providers.
