How to Watch Netflix in China on Iphone?

Good evening. I have a problem with my Iphone. I have no idea what is wrong with it. I try to watch Netflix on it, but every time it only responds with a message saying “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available.” It is really weird because everything was good before I came to China yesterday. Anyway, hope you guys can help with it. I want to watch my favorite shows during my stay in China for about 3 months. Thanks a lot.

More Information about Netflix and Its Inaccessibility in China.

When you ask an American where to watch quality and wonderful TV shows on the Internet, many Americans may recommend Netflix as the best options for your consideration. This judgment is based on the fact that together with YouTube, Hulu, etc., Netflix has been classified one of the most well-known and excellent online streaming service providers in the world. Behind the website’s great success is its great movie and TV show content it provides for its millions of users distributing in many nations all around the world. Such countries as United States of America, Australia, Canada and many other countries in Europe have made a great contribution to the website’s success. But for some reasons, Netflix seems to be a little bit slow in competing for a share of the streaming market in China, a country has the biggest population in the world and is regarded as one of the most important economies on the globe. When you want to access the website in China on any devices including Iphone, a message stating something like“Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available” will be the only page you can receive. Although YouTube and many other services like New York Times,Dailymotion, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, Gmail, Google Search, Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Twitter, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, WWE, Star Sports, Sky Italia, etc. are all inaccessible in China, it is a different case from Netflix. The inaccessibility of YouTube and the other services is the result of the fact that Chinese government has blocked all the potentially unfriendly websites or websites that are considered to be imposing potential threats on the stability and safety of the nation with the notorious Great Firewall of China. When you try to visit YouTube in China, an error message similarly as below will be responded. Read the rest of this post »

How to Visit Google in China on Samsung S8?


Hello. I think there is something wrong with my Samsung S8. I can’t use the Google Search on it. It says something like

”This site can’t be reached
www.google.com took too long to respond.
Try: Checking the connection
ERR-CONNECTION-TIMED-OUT”

I have tried checking the connection by visiting some websites. I can visit local websites quickly. What is going on? How do I fix this problem? I am in China on a business travel now. Thanks a lot.

More Information about Google Being Blocked in China.

When I tried to see what will happen if I google about “what is the best search engine in the world” with Google Search, I tried twice and have the same result. I either saw it at the end of a list of search engine logo like Bing, Yahoo!, ChaCha, DuchkDuckGo, Aol., Baidu, Wolfram Alpha and Google Search or not found it in the list on the result page. It is fun that the biggest and most popular Google Search is arranged at the end of the list or not listed on the result page which does not stand for the rank in fame and popularity of a search engine though. According to many reports, Google Search is undoubtedly one of the important and powerful search engines in the world. When you ask the Chinese what search engine they use most, they will say Baidu. But when you change the question and ask some Chinese people who know both search facilities well that what you think it is the best search engine between Google Search and Baidu Search. Many of them may tell you that Google is their choice. Google Search is one internet-related service or product of the Google company which is bought by Alphabet Inc. from its founders Larry Page and Sergey in 1998. Other products or services of Google Inc. includes Google Maps or Waze, Google Calendar, Gmail, Inbox, Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, Google Allo or Duo, the Andorid mobile OS, Chrome web browser, Google Translate, Google Drive, Chrome OS, Google photos, YouTube etc. All the products range widely from software to such hardware products as Daydream View virtual reality headset, Google Keep, and so on. The company can be classified as a giant in the industry all across the world. It has been favored by users in many different countries. But in China, the Google Search and its other products like Gmail has suffered a completely different treatment by the government. It has been proved that users in China can’t access Gmail and use Google Search because both products are both blocked by the government with the notorious Great Firewall of China. When users try to do so, there will be an error message sent back which may say something like “This site can’t be reached…” on Google Chrome or “This page can’t be displayed…” on Internet Explorer. What is worse, it is reported that there are more than several thousand of websites or services being blocked in China. Such famous and popular websites as New York Times, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, , Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Twitter, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, Star Sports, Sky Italia, etc. are all included in the list. However, in this article, we will introduce you an easy and efficient way to visit Google in China on Samsung S8. Read the rest of this post »

More Information about Twitter Being Blocked in China.

China is a nation with very unique culture. You many have known about the mysterious Chinese Acupuncture & Moxibustion; you may have seen some films which show the amazing Chinese kungfu. These may best show some aspects of Chinese traditional culture. While today’s China is one of the most important modern countries with a completely different appearance. In the history, the nation was among the world’s most important civilizations together with Egypt, Mesopotamia, Indus Valley, etc. And after about 30 years of opening up and reform after the founding of new China by Chair Mao, the country has experienced significant changes. It is classified as one of the most energetic economy in the world and plays a very important part in many international issues on the global stage. Millions of travelers from other different countries going to the nation for various purposes can be viewed as one of the most important achievements China has made during the adoption of the opening up and reform policy. As the policy is implemented further, it is believed that many more visitors will be attracted to the country either for tourism or business. But it is a disappointing fact that visitors may not be allowed to visit some of the most popular websites during their stay in China. These websites or online services include Twitter, New York Times, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, Gmail, Google Search, Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, WWE, Star Sports, Sky Italia and other more than 3,000 websites or services of different countries. All the websites or services are all blocked by the Chinese government with the watertight Great Firewall of China. That is why when visitors from abroad or Chinese citizens try to visit Twitter on their Samsung smart phones or other devices, the web browser will return the error message “The website is not available…” or other similar messages like those on Firefox web browser on windows operating system.

I have a samsung Galaxy s 8 Plus locked up, samsung galaxy s7 that is locked from the FBI vanilla card scam virus.

More Information about the Fake FBI Prism Virus.

Samsung S7 and S8 are android phones produced by Samsung Company. Although the phones have been designed sophistically to prevent from being infected by any virus threats, it ends up failing to escape from the infection of FBI scam virus. The FBI scam virus is a ransomware that is programmed to attacked various devices like smart phones/tablets running Android system of brands such as Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, ZTE, etc. This virus started to prevail several years ago and has developed into all types of variants with slight difference. As soon as the device is infected, the virus will lock it up and block victims from doing anything including restarting or powering off, let alone running any antivirus tools to kill it even though no antivirus facilities are reported effective to do that. Besides locking up the smart phones or tablets, other two traits of the virus can help further confirm if it is the FBI scam virus. First of all, the ransomware pretends to be a law enforcement agency in the country of the victims. In this case, the Department of Investigation Bureau is the government agency the virus pretends to be by stealing the title and logo of the agency. What role does this trick play in the whole scam trap? Yes, you may guess it. The trick is used to scare the victims and hurry them to make the ridiculous fine as soon as possible. The second trait to identify the FBI ransomware involves the unreal fine ranging from $100 to $500 bucks it demands the victims pay. You can view it as a ransom it requires the victims pay to unlock the device. As a matter of fact, you can unlock your phones or tablets by turning to an expert for help at much lower cost instead of paying the unreal penalty. So, you are suggested to talk to an expert for help when you find the FBI scam virus on your Samsung S7 or S8. Read the rest of this post »

Do you see a FBI warning on your phone? Have you been accused of viewing illegal porn on a FBI phone lock? Is your phone locked by a police warning?

No matter what’s the reason behind the block, they created the strictest firewall of the whole world which is known as the Great Firewall of China.
