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.
