China obscures Wikipedia in all languages

China has not only blocked the free encyclopedia of Wikipedia in Chinese for its users, it has now obscured the encyclopedia in other languages as well.

We know that Chinese Wikipedia has been banned in China since 2015, but from last month it has been blocking the Wikipedia site in all other languages.

The real reason why China has to tighten its blocking of the free encyclopedia site is not yet known, but the timing of the blackout coincides with a few weeks of the thirtieth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests.

It is customary for China to block access to some websites or Web pages that speak of protests, but as Wikipedia draws on the use of encryption for the content of its pages, China is no longer able to block access to certain pages, so this may be why it had to block the entire site in all its languages so that it could not Users to view encyclopedia content in Chinese after translation.
