Is any VPN legal in Hong Kong? If they are then there should be no reason this one should be banned but it is up to you to verify that. :)

You could do some research via an internet search such as here: https://www.startpage.com/ for the following terms: hong kong banned vpn

Why you asking this question in this forum because if you Google this question, you get an accurate answer. But for your help I give a guide link for knowing about where vpn is legal or illegal. https://www.purevpn.com/what-is-vpn/are-vpns-legal

Based on this: https://www.vpn-service.org/do-you-live ... e-country/ it's not -- however, it's also important to consider the political situation there. With China tightening its grip on Hong Kong legislation, it's possible some things are going on beneath the surface.

At its current state, though, Hong Kong has pretty decent privacy rules, and it's not part of the 14 Eyes, so aside from VPNs being legal, VPNs are also fairly safe/private.
