I read that Google Servers are restricted from DNS in China. What is the best and safest way to play ingress with a local Chinese mobile operator? I see 2 options 1-Change host file on my rooted Android device 2-VPN
I am not sure if Google checks the source ip of the country and the actual location from GPS and ban users. If there is no such control I will go with VPN. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this.
