Another tech giant got cut off by the Great Firewall of China.
Discord, a popular and free voice & text app for gamers, was blocked by China. Joining the ranks of sites like Twitter, WhatsApp, Reddit, Google, and other apps blocked in China, Discord users found themselves unable to log on or connect with friends for free.
This decision is likely due to the strong desire of the Chinese Government to completely censor what their citizens see, restricting news from outside the country. Along with many other websites blocked in China, Discord is also an easy place to find people with similar interests- say political protest interests- and communicate or plan. There also seems to be an elevated interest in blocking esports and gaming communication, though for what end we’re not sure.
The Chinese Government has been increasing their censorship efforts, and it’s not gone unnoticed here at VyprVPN.
