China Increasing Internet Controls

China is tightening their hold on Internet users, according to a new article from Time, after a flood of online complaints about official abuses rattled Communist Party leaders.

China's government approved a new law Friday December, 28th that requires users to register their names and other identifying information when they register with access providers or post information publicly on the Internet. This is something that will remove the idea of remaining anonymous online, without a VPN service, for China's 500 million users. The public has been largely taking advantage of the internet to make complaints about the government and exposing corruption.

GoTrusted will continue to support our users located in China to make sure the protection of anonymity is not lost and that people will be able to access the Internet without censorship or fear of reprisal.

Google says 'Government Surveillance is On The Rise'

In an article recently published on, Google has released information regarding governments' requests for information on users as part of their 'Transparency Report'.

There have been 20,938 total inquiries to Google, involving 34,614 accounts worldwide. Currently, it seems, that governments around the world are increasing surveillance of Internet users. Google has stated they have complied with most of these requests. It's also worth noting that this is only in reference to Google. The numbers are likely much higher when you take into account all providers governments may also be issuing these inquiries to.

The report comes following prominent email snooping cases from official agencies. A situation that puts front and center the fact that, in current digital times, it is so important for us to be advocates for our own privacy and safety when going online.

This is why we're working so hard here at GoTrusted. To make sure our customers' privacy is protected while using our Secure VPN Tunnel. Whether that's from malicious individuals or governments who's policies take a turn and privacy becomes the target. We are here to make sure worrying about your online privacy and security isn't an issue.

GoTrusted Celebrates Safer Internet Day

Along with industry majors, such as Google, Microsoft, and others, GoTrusted is marking this day, the ninth annual Safer Internet Day (SID), to bring awareness of how to use the Internet safely for all users.

Important steps for anyone using the Internet, especially parents:

• Keep computers that children use in a central location in the home

• Have an open discussion with your child about what they do online and where they go

• Maintain an up-to-date antivirus software to prevent trojans and other malware browser plugins from monitoring you or your child's activity

• Get in the habit of having your child use a VPN Service when browsing or chatting in order to protect their identity and location such as school they attend, cafes they visit, libraries, and other information that can be obtained from their IP address when using the Internet without a VPN Service. This goes for parents as well.

• Teach your child proper online communication etiquette - avoid chatting to strangers about private information such as places of work, school and other personal information.

More information is available at the SID official website:

Use the Internet Safely Today! ...and every other day.
