How to Connect PureVPN to China

If you’re reading this, then it’s almost certain that you either live in China or have plans to visit the world’s most populous country. Even if you don’t, you probably use products or services available in China, and it’s important to understand the implications of connecting to the country.

As a VPN, you may be wondering how to connect to China. In order to do this, you will need to follow a specific set of steps, which we have detailed below. This guide will help you connect to China and access products and services that you might not be able to access from outside the country.

Step One: Select A Suitable Server

In order to connect to China, you will need to choose a suitable VPN server based in the country. The best option is to use a VPN server that’s optimized for speeds and has a good balance of security and privacy. As a general rule, we recommend avoiding free VPN services, as they often have very limited functionality and can’t offer the same level of protection as paid services. In addition, many free VPNs are designed for simplicity and usability, which makes them more suitable for limited use cases, such as for children or when you’re abroad. Security and privacy are far more important than usability, so make sure that the VPN service you pick offers these features.

Step Two: Activate The Server

After selecting a suitable VPN server, you will need to log in and activate it. The process of logging in and activating a VPN server is usually quick and easy, but you should still read the instructions provided by the service to ensure that you connect to the correct server. Once you’ve logged in, you can visit the settings page of the VPN and check the box to indicate that you accept the EULA (eXtended Service Agreement). This is an agreement that you must accept in order to use the VPN, as it holds your security and privacy in high regard and ensures that your personal data is handled responsibly.

Step Three: Configure DNS

DNS is short for Domain Name System, which helps IP addresses find their associated names. When you visit a website, your computer will look up the IP address associated with that website. Without DNS, you would need to memorize IP addresses or use a proxy to get around restrictions put in place by the Chinese government. If you’re outside of China, you can use OpenDNS or Google DNS to easily manage these settings.

Step Four: Change Your Appearance

Last but not least, you will need to change the appearance of your computer or mobile device to match that of a Chinese IP address. You can do this by installing a specialized piece of software, changing your MAC address, or buying a new device with the appropriate regional sticker on its back. Changing your MAC address is the most common method, as it involves simply rebooting your computer or mobile device and entering the command “ifconfig” into the terminal. From here, you can copy and paste the new MAC address into the device’s settings.

Why Are These Steps Necessary?

If you’ve read this far, then you might be wondering why you need to connect to China via VPN. After all, you’re not breaking any laws by doing so, and in many cases, it’s easier to just use a different IP address to access the content that you want. This might be true, but there are several reasons why you should still use a VPN when accessing China.

The Chinese government controls what devices can be used to access the Internet within the country. This is called “Great Firewall of China” and was first set up in the early 1990s. Back then, people with home computers could access the web just fine. However, as more people started using smartphones and tablets in the 2000s, the Chinese government noticed that these devices were connecting to websites that they deemed “dangerous.” The government began blocking these websites, and as a result, many businesses and individuals in China were kept away from the internet. This is why, even today, it’s still not safe to openly access the web from within the country.

If you’re worried about what could happen if you don’t connect to the VPN, then it might be a smart idea to avoid China altogether. However, in some cases, you might want to access websites that are prohibited inside the country, such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In those instances, a VPN is the best option.

If you choose to use a VPN and connect to the Chinese web, then you will run the risk of being tracked by the government. When you access a website through the Great Firewall of China, your computer will send certain data to the server that you’re connected to. This data, often called “anonymized network traffic,” is collected and stored by the government. It is then used to identify visitors to websites that are prohibited in China. You do not have to worry about this if you connect to VPNs that are specifically designed for China.

This type of VPN will not only protect you from the government, but it will also make it harder for hackers and cybercriminals to gain access to your personal data. Many VPNs have additional security features that are meant to keep your personal information secure even if you’re not in China. Some of these features are more effective than others, so make sure that you read the descriptions carefully so that you know what you’re getting into.

In the end, as long as you’re not doing anything illegal, then it’s usually not a bad idea to use a VPN when surfing the web in China. At the very least, it’s better than trying to access websites that are blocked by the government or using public Wi-Fi, which could expose you to cybercriminals. As long as you keep your device protected, then you will be able to browse the web with complete safety and anonymity, even in China.
