    There was a news report published in early 2017 that talked about China really clamping down and making it illegal to use a VPN. When businesses use a VPN they have to get clearance from the government to do so. They can’t just use a VPN because it’s necessary for business, they have to get approvals from the authorities in China in order to create and use a VPN.
