Google has banned ads for virtual private network (VPN) products targeting
Chinese users, ZDNet reported on Wednesday. From a report: The company cited
"local legal restrictions" as the cause of the VPN ad ban. "It is currently
Google Ads policy to disallow promoting VPN services in China, due to local
legal restrictions," Google said in an email today. The email was received and
shared with ZDNet by VPNMentor, a website offering advice, tips, and reviews of
VPN products. The company said Google prevented its employees from placing
Google search ads for the Chinese version of its site.
