beijing - Chinese get more difficult later to visit foreign websites. Beijing moves against ways that people can circumvent the Great Firewall, the censorship filter. So may virtual private networks (VPN) can only be set up if the government has given permission for.

China has the most Internet users in the world, about 731 million people, but they can only see what allow those in power over the ordinary Internet. Facebook, Google, Gmail, YouTube, Yahoo !, Twitter, Instagram and the New York Times have been blocked. And those looking for words such as Tibet, democracy, human rights or the names of dissidents, finds nothing. That wall has to dodge VPNs.
