    Recommend a VPN for China

    I'm heading to China for a month of work. First time there, and need to download a VPN before I go.
    I just need to be able to use my gmail, and would be nice to keep up on social media and TGR.
    Willing to pay if I know its decent software. I'm not overly tech savvy, I get most, but not a computer nerd.
    Running a MacBook Pro w Catalina 10.15.2

    Looking for recommendations, googling provides billions of results and its hard to decipher what's advertising and what's good reviews.

    I'm more worried about the malware I'll get from PMing Spook, then I am from using my computer in China.

    ^^ PIA (Private Internet Access) has been fine for me and worked perfect in China in 2016. Consider getting a Protonmail email account, it's free and end-to-end encrypted

    China for a month? My condolences.
    Hope you're up to date on your Corona Virus shots.
    If my employer told me I had to work in China for a month, I would tell them to pound sand.

    I was so worried about getting a virus on my computer, that I didn't look into the virus I could get in my body.
    Sweet, I didn't realize there is a shot for coronavirus? Should I star a new thread? "Recommend a shot for the coronavirus?"
    The case load have risen to almost 200 people (out of 1,439,323,776)!
    Maybe I'll get some skiing in, I hear they have over 700 resorts.

    200? I see you are new to Chinese statistics. Unfortunately for you it appears the virus infects international travelers disproportionately

    magaworth skier going globalist. It’s not like Canadian citizens have been detained for over a year in China for no reason ......

    ...

    Authorities in China are locking down at least three cities in an extraordinary bid to halt the spread of the deadly coronavirus, which has left at least 17 dead in the country and sickened hundreds of others. The move is unprecedented and affects more than 18 million people.
