How to Unblock Pinterest in China?

pinterest
Pinterest is a social network site launched in 2009 which allows users to visually share, and discover new interests by posting (known as ‘pinning’ on Pinterest) images or videos to their own or others’ boards (i.e. a collection of ‘pins,’ usually with a common theme) and browsing what other users have pinned. For years, Pinterest has been freely accessible in China but since March 2017, Pinterest has been added to the list of websites blocked by The Great Firewall of China. Meanwhile, Pinterest App was not available in Chinese App store anymore.

With the ban, Pinterest has joined the family of popular online companies that have been denied access by China’s Great Wall. They include the likes of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Github, Pirate Bay, Vimeo, Gmail and much more. In fact, it is not surprising that Pinterest has been blocked in China though Chinese netizens are angry and disappointed about it. As we all know, the communist government in China always takes strict steps with regard to the internet censorship. Therefore, the government has tight control on what its citizens can read, discuss, and share online.

Until now, it still remains questionable that why a website which is used for sharing images of animals, wedding dresses, recipes would be targeted banned by the Chinese government. But thankfully, there is a reliable way out there to help unblock Pinterest in China.
