Anyone here? Need help. There was popup on my phone sending me to a porn website, then blindly I clicked a video trying to take it off and it started playing. Then a Paysafecard pop up came on trying to make me pay $100. And it won’t let me do anything and it says if I don’t pay, I’ll be on a criminal list and I will lose all the stuff on my phone and I just don’t know what to do. Can the federal government lock your computer or mobile device? Please help. I am scared.
Paysafecard Virus is dangerous and aggressive virus which is created by hacker. In the first beginning, it mainly targeted computers. As mobile devices have become an important part of daily life, it starts to attack mobile devices with various systems, such as Android, ios and Windows etc. This virus usually warns victims that they have violated some laws because of watching some illegal porn videos. Therefore, the police lock their devices. In order to unlock their devices and avoid more punishment, they will need to pay a fine via prepaid card like Paysafecard. The size of fine is different on different devices which ranges from $ 100 to $ 500. The innocent victims are threatened by the nasty virus. It states that the police will come to their home and arrest them if they don’t pay the fine within the deadline. It commonly gives victims 24 to 72 hours to prepare the fine. It also states that your friends will get message about your crime and you will have to stay in jail for years. In fact, this Paysafecard police warning is made up by the cyber criminals and shown by the virus. Therefore, you have to remove the Paysafecard virus from your device without delay.

If you live in or ever had been in China, you might know that the Internet censorship there is pretty high. There are many limits in Internet use. In 2009, some statements caused a riot which had a bad influence on the Chinese government. They worry about the perceived social and political threats it may cause to China’s cultural values and ideology. Since then, the government has been cautious of media and kept monitoring users’ online activities. In a largely populated country like China, monitoring the Internet activities of its people is really a tougher job. The fact is that China is doing very good at it. It builds a far ranging and increasingly sophisticated system of internet censorship. This is known officially as the “Golden Shield” project, but is called the “Great Firewall of China.” The firewall forms a barricade between users in China and certain websites like The New York Times, Youtube, Facebook and Google etc. The blocking of newspaper in China is frustrated act because it stops people from reading news written by the great company.

Can’t use Flickr in China? It is because this platform is blocked by the Great Firewall of China. Flickr is a photo sharing platform and social network where you upload photos to share with friends and followers online. It has grown into one of the premier photo hosting and sharing sites on the internet, boasting an upload rate of more than 7,000 photos per minute. It is different from other social media platform like Facebook and Instagram. Flickr is a photo-centric platform which is a good place to annotate, curate, store, and manage your pictures. It is one of the best way to put your pictures on the Internet. The photography enthusiasts prefer this service because they can get a terabyte of photo storage space for free so that they can show off their work as well as viewing others’ freely. You can use it keep your meaningful moment in record clearly because it places your photos on a map to mark the location in which they were taken. If you are very satisfied with your work, you can easily share your Flickr photos back to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr etc. It is very inconvenient for the photographers in China. The amateur, professional as well as anybody who has an interest in photography can not enjoy it easily because Flickr has been banned in China.
China is one of those countries which are the leading heads when it comes to creating and implying technology in day to day lives and for maintaining such huge technological aspects, they have also created the strictest firewall of the whole world in their very own country which is known as the Great Firewall of China. This firewall blocks millions of the western Internet services which can be used by the rest of the world like Facebook, Twitter, Google and its other services like Google Drive and YouTube, and even Flickr.
Take Flickr as an example, it is blocked because the government believe that this website can give offensive and some threatening results that might affect the thinking of the Chinese people. How come a photo and video sharing platform can bring such bad effect? Flickr is not applying the filtering rules as stated by the Chinese government and hence is blocked to use in China. Why China want to censor it? It is because a video on western websites once caused a big riot in China in 2009. Another media also brought trouble to the government during the protest in Hong Kong. Though the services and websites are famous and have the maximum amount of users around the globe, they can’t be accessed in China that has the most people residing in it throughout the world. In order to use Flickr, you need to escape from the Great Firewall of China. Read the rest of this post »

Hello. Can I use Hulu in China? I am a Japanese and will go to China for work. I heard that many foreign services do not work in China. Is Hulu one of them? If it is not working there, is there a way to fix it? Please help.
When you are in China, is Hulu available for you? What’s the error you can see when accessing Hulu there? Hulu is a video streaming service that offers premium video content from television shows to feature-length movies. It has free and paid tiers. The amount of content accessible for free service is limited. For a small monthly fee, you can gain unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library with limited or no commercials and stream as much and as often as you want. The full seasons of exclusive series, hit movies, Hulu Originals, kids shows, and more are available for you. Compared with other services, it provides cheaper plans, offers a variety of supported devices. and offers speedy updates of current TV shows. It owns lots of registered users. However, Hulu is not available in China.
Some of you may not hear of it because Hulu is offered only to users in Japan and the United States and its overseas territories. The good news is you still can watch video on Hulu in other countries like China, UK and France. Thing is a bit different in China when talking about using foreign websites. The Internet censorship is pretty high and lots of western services are blocked in China. Hulu also comes in the list of the online live streaming website that may show the content that is not suitable for the viewing of the Chinese people. The Chinese authority think it may provoke the people and spoil the mind of the young generation. They are the two reasons why you can’t watch videos on Hulu in China like you did in US and Japan.

Do you know why Youtube is blocked in China? The Chinese government censors and controls content on the internet that is deemed harmful to the state, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc are such platforms perceived to be a threat. These sites are, to this day, blocked (although not technically ‘banned’ as the use of the site is not illegal) in China.
It is ultimately much easier and more practical for an authoritarian, communist government to censor and monitor social networks managed by Chinese companies where they can directly exert control. The blocking of such established western social networks has led to the prolific rise of many large, domestic Chinese digital firms who are sympathetic to the state’s rules and conditions. This also has the effect of reducing the social influence of foreign cultures interacting with the Chinese population. Many expatriates living in China thought that once the troubles in Xinjiang eased, the blocking would cease as measures like this in the past had always been temporary. There were surprisingly neither international protests nor repercussions for the blocking of the site and the policy was retained. Read the rest of this post »

Why isn’t Netflix working is China. There are two reasons due to the two sides. On one hand, Netflix authority itself that haven’t launched the service in China. The stated reason was that there are many complexities in getting the permission to show the multimedia content to the Chinese people. The censor board is quite strict and will not pass any content that might hurt of spoil the minds of the Chinese people. The government is still strict toward the censorship on the viewable content. On the other hand, China blocks many video-sharing websites from other countries. It is a country which leads the world in terms of technology. The government created the Great Firewall of China, the strictest firewall in the whole world, to block contents that are not suitable for their people. They are afraid that the videos will provoke people into doing something bad to the country like the riot in 2009 and protest in Hong Kong. Therefore, it is still difficult to access Netflix though this company launch service in China because the Chinese government has blocked most of the streaming websites and other Internet services including Netflix, YouTube, Facebook and Google etc. However, users in China don’t get to watch most of the TV shows on streaming websites or use the Internet as they want.

Hello. I will move to China for work next week, so I need to make sure that things will go well before I go there. I learnt that many websites and apps are blocked there, but I need Google search for my work. I will bring my new Mac there. How can I unblock Google search in China on it? Please suggest. Thanks.
If you are a Chinese and never hear of Google Search, that’s normal. If you know this search engine but you can’t use it in China, that’s normal. If you keep getting error when trying to use this search engine for information after you moved to China, that’s normal. It is because this service is banned in China. Google search is the most famous search engine which has been used all over the world. It is a useful tool for people to information they need.

Hello. I would like to know how use Twitter in China on my Mac. I am new here. Please help.
If you traveled or moved to China, you would note that Twitter is blocked by the firewall. The Chinese government does not want users in China to access Twitter. Twitter is a famous social media platform which allows users to broadcast daily short burst messages to the world. This platform provides a stream of quick updates from friends, family, scholars, news journalists, and experts. You can view texts, pictures and videos from users in other sides of the earth. It is a good way to learn about the world through another person’s eyes. On the platform, you can see what’s happening in the world while staying at home by reading contents about music, sports, politics, news, celebrities and everyday moments of others. It allows you to discuss current events with friends as well as the strangers. Why is Twitter so popular? Most users choose it due to its conciseness. Every tweet entry is limited to 280 characters or less. This size limit promotes the focused and clever use of language. That makes tweets very easy to scan. Users can be attracted and get more information in a short time in this attention-deficit society. Isn’t it a pity that users in China can’t access it? Not only the Chinese people, but also foreign users who went to this country face the same problem. Luckily, we smart people figured out a way to unblock Twitter in China.
Twitter is a famous and useful service in many countries. Why is it blocked in China? If you live in China, you might know that there are many limits in Internet use there. In China, the Internet does not work the way it works around the globe. Millions of websites and services have been blocked by the Golden Shield Project. In 2009, Facebook Twitter and YouTube etc. were added in the list of the social sites that might provoke the riots happened in 2009. Later, the Protest in Hong Kong also was affected by media spread on the Internet. Those western social media platforms were deemed to be the cause of disorder in China. The Chinese government states, “We are preventing our people from the all the wrong social threats going over the Internet.” This is the reason given by the Chinese government for blocking the different online social media websites in China. Some people also think there is another reason. They believe that the Chinese authority block foreign prominent services to make room for the domestic services in the market. That also helps them to monitor people’s online activities effectively. Read the rest of this post »

Gmail is one of the best service providers when it comes for one to set up their email account. But unfortunately, even Gmail is blocked in China. As much sorrow that brings to the people of China, it also brings more inconvenience because email is needed in every aspect of life from work to having a social media account.
Why you aren’t able to open Gmail in China? Because China has undoubtedly the most strict internet security in the whole world, and the citizens of China do have to pay for it with being informed with news and affairs only of China and to be completely out of any connection with the rest of the world. And China is one of those countries in the whole world which is most affluent in terms of technology, internet security as well as physical security, so it is very much expected that the security on the internet in China would be one of the strictest ones in the whole world. And they do live up to this expectation with their firewall which is also known as the Great Firewall of China, which is undoubtedly the strictest firewall in the whole world.
The easiest path to avoid the Great Firewall of China is hiding your internet traffic from the online servers in China. To perform this, you need to use the encryption from the initial moment and then begin to do your internet activities. The virtual private network providers allow you to do this by simply using the encryption technique on any device that you would use such as laptops, tablets, desktops and smart phones. With this VPN service, you can use the encryption technique to hide your internet activities from the state that you want to connect to the internet. The firewall cannot give access to the website, so it does not matter which ones you are often visiting. Read the rest of this post »
