Video shows how to use DropBox in China

Conclusion

Internet limitation in China is outrageous because of a comprehensive assortment of laws and managerial controls. It is not easy to access western websites like Google, YouTube, Facebook and Dropbox. In those years, they keep updating the national firewall to censor the Internet activities effectively. More than sixty Internet controls have been made by the legislature of China, which have been connected by area branches of state-possessed ISPs, organizations, and associations. Therefore, it is very necessary to get a reliable VPN to unblock Dropbox in China which helps to get a new IP as well as to make online data encrypted. When connecting, it masks your original IP to the server. And, it shows your VPN server other than China. It is important to be noted that not all VPNs are equally suitable for getting through the Great Firewall of China. You need the one which is specially developed for China Internet censorship. Still have problem in using Dropbox in China? Get a VPN!
