I need secure VPN advice or y’all going to enjoy a few weeks of peace and quiet while I venture beyond the Great Firewall.

Real talk: Bring only electronics that you are willing to discard once you arrive back home. If you desperately need a smartphone, buy a cheap used non-rooted iphone new enough to still get updates (that’s… iphone 4, I think?). Wipe it before entering China, wipe it again after the border if you didn’t maintain exclusive physical access, then sync your phone. Wipe it again before leaving, then throw it out either before or after the border.
