How to access Apple movies and iBooks in China

Less than seven months after Apple launched iBooks and iTunes Movies, the services have been shut down in China. Every now and then the Chinese government makes such decisions to block various online services. Sometimes they are quick to revoke such decisions but other times they may last for years. One thing is for sure, if visit or you live in China, then you are bound to experience some form of censorship.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) service is by far the easiest and most effective means of bypassing China’s great firewall. A VPN will allow you to use the internet as you would like allowing you to access all the services that you would enjoy in the western world. Similarly it will allow you to access iTunes movies and iBooks circumventing the latest issue presenting itself when in China.

This is possible by creating a secure encrypted tunnel between your computer (tablet, smartphone) in mainland China and a VPN server somewhere else in the world; it is impossible for the Great firewall to determine what websites are being visited.

Not sure about your privacy and security online? You're not alone.

A recent survey by the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) reveals that 83 percent of people using the internet believe that there is a need for more rules about how companies and governments use personal data. Furthermore, 85 percent believe that their governments should work closely with other countries and organizations to make the Internet more secure.

Concerning online privacy, 57 percent were more worried than they were a year ago, and only a few people surveyed (38 percent) trusted that their activities online are not being monitored. Less than half (46 percent) believe that their internet activity is not being censored. Only about a third believed that their government was doing enough to keep their personal data protected from private companies.

Liberty VPN can help you ease these uncertainties regarding online privacy and security, as it will protect your personal information from anywhere you choose to access it from. You may setup a connection on your desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone.

Do NOT use a Wi-Fi hotspot without a VPN!

There has been greater awareness in recent years of how unsafe it is to connect to public a Wi-Fi hotspot, such as those found in most airports, coffee shops and hotels. Although very convenient, in particular for travelers who do not wish to pay excessive roaming mobile data fees when away from home, unsecure Wi-Fi connections are full with perils.

The emergence of Firesheep has shaken up the Wi-Fi hotspot world, and focused the minds of security experts on the dangers of connecting to public Wi-Fi networks. This add-on for Firefox is a packet snooper that lets even people, with almost no hacking skills, intercept unencrypted cookies sent from websites such as Facebook and Twitter over public networks. This allows them to “sidejack” a user’s current session and effectively use a website as them. The hacker could then download personal details, send spam, delete the user’s accounts or change their password, or even download unsavory material using their account. 

The problem is made worse by the existence of “evil twin hotspots”. Packet sniffer and the like will only work on unsecured networks, and only when connecting to unsecured websites (non-SSL .i.e. their address starts with http:// rather than https://) and on things such as POP3 email and FTP connections (POP3 snooping is dangerous as it gives hackers access to a user’s email details when they sync with POP3 servers). Hence, it is common practice among hackers to hang out at public access hotspots, and set up fake mobile hotspots of their own, with names such as “Free Airport Public Wi-Fi”. Users, who make the mistake of connecting to one of these Wi-Fi “traps”, allow hackers to download their cache, and possibly access shared folders. The hackers may also try to fool users into paying for internet access, and therefore handing over their payment details to the hacker. 

There is however a simple solution to these problems (other than just not using public Wi-Fi), which is to use VPN. A VPN connection creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and the VPN server, no one, including both your own ISP and any public Wi-Fi hackers, can ‘see’ the data you transmit.
