VyprVPN Service in China Restored After Latest Round of Blocking
The Chinese government began blocking VyprVPN connections via IP blocking, as well as targeting of iOS connections yesterday (October 4). As indicated by reports and commentary online, the latest round of censorship in the form of VPN blocking appears to be hitting many providers. We rolled out workarounds, and VyprVPN service is largely restored at this time.
This quick turnaround by our engineers is one of the many benefits of running our own servers and network, allowing us to restore service ahead of other blocked VPN providers. The connection activity chart below illustrates the impact of China’s latest attempts to block VyprVPN and our success in working around these efforts.
