While the tension between China and India is still on after the violent standoff on June 15, in Galwan Valley area in eastern Ladakh in which both sides suffered casualties. In China, Indian newspapers and websites can not be accessed by the people. Though Chinese newspapers and websites continue to be accessible in India, people in China can only access the Indian media websites with Virtual Private Network (VPN) server.
The Chinese action of banning Indian media sites came even before when India decided to ban 59 Chinese apps including Tik Tok, UC Browser, and other Chinese apps prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity and defense of the country.
The Indian TV channels also can be accessed through IP TV as of now. And ExpressVPN has not been working in the Communist state for the past two days on the iPhone as well as desktops.
A virtual private network (VPN) is a powerful tool that gives users online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection. VPNs mask internet protocol (IP) address so a user’s online actions are virtually untraceable.
China has created such a technologically advanced firewall that it blocks even the VPNs.
