Woke up this morning and your VPN didn't work, right? Mei banfa bro. Astrill is down. Take this opportunity to read some more harmonious websites like this one. Or, ponder an important question…
exactly is Astrill. Does anyone actually know? We give them our credit card numbers and our email addresses, and then use their software to surf blocked sites. We channel all of our information through their server, and they could probably see this if they wanted. Our porn history, Amazon purchases, search history, dark net adventures, YouTube tangents, and Gmail account. In theory, Astrill could view and keep a record of this.
Seriously though, it's something to consider. Why isn't their site blocked in China? Why should we trust Astrill with all of our information? Is the need to get on Facebook so bad that we just say screw it, it's probably cool? Why does computer run slow after turning Astrill off? Is Astrill evil? Let us know what you think in the comments.
If you really need to get back on that open internet, here's a few other tools:
