Re: China Access

I can confirm that its restricted in Huazhou, Guangdong. However, if you're using a smartphone with Box app installed and logged in before getting into China. You'll be able to use it. Once logged out, you can not log back in. Bummer. 

 

I'd really like to know what's a fix for this matter? Before signing up, I was told that Box will work in China.

You'll have to use a VPN tunnel on your device to a IP outside of China.

Re: China Access

ronreyes has the right idea.  There are many VPN services out there and many of them are very afordable or even free.  Here is a link you might find helpful:

Re: China Access

You can access with vpn for china, they are all relatively affordable but my personal vote go to purevpn. I am using it for 5 months and have no problems so far.

China is using GFW protocol for blocking websites so you can use OneVPN for unblocking all kind of websites you can utilize best VPN features.
