Hey people any idea on how to keep in touch with somebody that is planning to stay a while in China? Im not a big fan of WeChat tbh neither do I want this person to take any unnecessary risks. WhatsApp is banned. Major platforms are banned. I don't want this person to raise suspicious and I certainly want to avoid troubles with the Political Police :/

@adidal Just make them have an account on your masto/pleroma instance. Small instances aren't blocked there.

Maybe ask @lain , but he had no problem using his fedi accounts there
@marsxyz @adidal if that person can get a hong kong sim card, those have unrestricted internet. You can buy them on amazon valid for 30 days after first use for about 15€ a piece.
@adidal tox.chat might be worth looking into, tho i have no idea what the situation is like for it in China. just make sure they have a nice large peer list before they go

@velartrill yeah no he's not that tech-savy so if he doesnt use an appropriate configuration its just gonna raise a flag and raise suspicions :/ but thanks anyway :)

@mattskala are services like qq.com authorised to communicate with non-mainland mail servers?

@adidal I don't know. I certainly get a lot of email originating from Chinese servers, though, so it seems clear that some kind of connectivity is available. Trying to encrypt messages would likely attract the wrong kind of attention.
