The People’s Republic of China has some of the most rigorous rules against internet freedom and their users’ privacy. For many years now, people that reside in this territory have had trouble accessing some of the most used apps and websites due to their government increased censorship. Now, another problem arises, one that only deepens this issue.
With half a billion users around the world, Dropbox is one of the most important online collaboration platforms. It’s mainly used as storage for your important files, allowing you to reach them from any device connected to the Internet. Additionally, Dropbox owes its popularity to the security features it offers. All your stored files will be protected with a military-grade 256-bit AES encryption.
Internet censorship is old news when it comes to China. As a matter of fact, the government has been doing this for many years now. Even some of the biggest social media platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter, were banned in the country. The netizens of the People's Republic of China have been blocked from accessing Facebook for almost a decade now, ever since the platform was completely shut down in 2009.
