Apple Removed VPN Apps For China App Store

The Chinese government has long censored internet activities in the country and has even reportedly tried to crack down on Bitcoin. The government has had a history of trying to limit internet usage by blocking popular websites like YouTube.

However, there are ways to get past these blocks. Many Chinese people have often used VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) to get past them. These networks will change their IP address and make their IP address look different from what they actually are.

Due to the nation's internet limits, Apple which is a very large tech company that's known almost anywhere on the planet has had to remove VPN apps from the app store.

The news source known as Tech Crunch got a statement from Apple that covered the approval of VPNs.

The statement said: "Earlier this year China’s MIIT announced that all developers offering VPNs must obtain a license from the government. We have been required to remove some VPN apps in China that do not meet the new regulations. These apps remain available in all other markets where they do business."

Apple has the right to do this but the choice will of course not sit very well with the actual companies of these VPN apps.

However, some people can still download the apps from a different territory if they were in a different territory.

Many things are blocked in China that we enjoy on the basis but a lot of these services will no longer be used by Chinese citizens because of this move.

This can really damage some people if they're doing illegal acts and they can't really continue them since they can now be tracked. Most people will probably be fine but a lot of people won't like it because few people like having someone know what they're doing all the time.
