Tech review with Peter Marks: Apple defends decision to remove VPN software in China


Apple has defended its decision to comply with a Chinese government’s demand to remove VPN software from the App Store.

Virtual Private Networks are often used to avoid censorship and surveillance in countries with tight restrictions on internet use.

Apple said it disagreed with China’s position but had to comply with the country’s laws.

Meanwhile, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has also signed a law this week banning VPNs and that will come into effect in November.
