I work in Beijing, my company has a government approved network-wide vpn to get through the great firewall (many companies do) as they are a game publisher that publishes games abroad. There was a company wide message at my work today saying the government was doing “inspections” and told us we should only go on foreign websites if we ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO, then leave them immediately when done.
That doesn’t really work for me, as I’m a translator, and in the boredom of constantly translating I usually have YouTube on all day in the background. Is turning on my own VPN (astrill) at work enough to hide what I’m doing on the company network? Is there something more I can be doing? Tor browser for example? It’s my own PC, so no keyloggers or whatever software. But I’m clueless as to what they can see just from the network?
