We originally covered a story in good faith from popular VPN provider Private Internet Access as did other publications in which they made claims their service was blocked in Hong Kong (see here).
Due to conflicting reports, we opted to retract our news coverage as to not inflame the delicate situation in Hong Kong.
Private Internet Access has now published an updated story in which they claim they have been able to unblock their service in Hong Kong (see here).
Although it appears VPN services are currently working in Hong Kong, we would encourage citizens (as we do with all countries) to consider their online privacy and take appropriate steps to secure it.
We stand with Hong Kong citizens in their quest for freedom and democracy.
