Q: What is the best vpn for an android phone to keep we chat in US?

Well it seems that tik tok is dead in America and Trump is going after Tencent for other ventures which could include we

chat. So if we chat gets banned, a vpn will be needed for my wife to communicate with mom in China. My top pick so far is proton mail vpn. I used the Swiss company email account in China to avoid observation.

Any Thoughts?

I'll have to try that Proton.  I tried maybe half a dozen off of torrent sites...  all fake sh*t....

 

heard good things about Express, just chaps my a** to pay the fee.  But I guess if a person really needs it, it does get best reviews.

 

Haven't used skype in years,,,, does it have a chat function?  I mean is it like wechat / whatsapp now?  when I used it it was just to make calls to the States....

Are you putting the horse before the cart?

As I understand the news stories, the ban is about transactions (financial I assume). I didn't see where the app itself was being banned. But who knows. There may be a silver lining as all those annoying people in your pengyouquan are vanquished... Mwahaha

    Try ExpressVPN, it's stable and up-to-date.

    A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
