Improved Access to Web Resources Blocked in China, the UAE, and Regions with Internet Censorship

Accessing your desired websites and expressing your opinion freely on the internet can be problematic when you live in or travel to countries with a strict internet censorship, like China and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). These countries impose strict internet regulations. Many popular foreign websites are blocked. 

Internet censorship in the UAE and China

For example, the UAE internet censorship aims to block content that contains criticism of the government. Some authorities also pay a great deal of attention to sensitive discussions of religion. Thus, the restrictions affect: 

  • Social networks (Facebook, Twitter)
  • Media (The New York Times, YouTube)
  • Search engines (Google)
  • Many other services that are of great demand among the netizens of the UAE

 

The same situation applies to China. The infamous Great Firewall of China (GFW) blocks foreign websites primarily for the sake of political stability. There are many foreign residents in China and the UAE that need to access blocked websites for personal or professional purposes. Therefore, “how to access blocked websites” is a highly popular search query in the UAE and China. Moreover, many UAE and Chinese websites are accessible only within their country. Accessing them from abroad is impossible.

Countries that enforce internet censorship and block access to global content

  • North Korea - blocks social media, porn, torrents, and most VPNs. Political media in the country is created by KCNA (Korean Central News Agency), which is the only source allowed to publish news.
  • China - blocks porn, most VPNs, Western social media. Political media is heavily restricted, some journalists face severe prison sentences for anti-government publications, and members of the public can be jailed for simply commenting on or sharing news posts. 
  • Russia - blocks torrenting and VPNs, certain social media, the internet is heavily controlled and monitored by the government agency called RKN.
  • Turkmenistan - blocks social networking sites and porn
  • Iran - blocks VPNs, pornography, and some social media; news media is heavily censored.
  • Belarus, Turkey, Oman, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, and Eritrea - all ban porn, censor political media and torrenting heavily.
