China Blocks WhatsApp, Says Messaging Service Should Stop Spread of “Illegal Information”

CircleID CircleID: WhatsApp is now broadly disrupted in China including text messages which were going through despite China's censorship of the app beginning mid-July which only effected photographs and video chats. The move comes as Beijing prepares for the Communist Party's congress, which starts Oct. 18. Keith Bradsher reporting in the New York Times says: "WhatsApp was the last of Facebook products to still be available in mainland China; the company's main social media service has been blocked in China since 2009, and its Instagram image-sharing app is also unavailable. ... The blocking of WhatsApp text messages suggests that China's censors may have developed specialized software to interfere with such messages, which rely on an encryption technology..." According to Bloomberg News, China has accused Facebook's WhatsApp service of spreading "illegal information". "WhatsApp should take proactive measures to intercept information to do with violence and terror, the Cyberspace Administration of China said in a statement… China has the authority to tell institutions to take these measures without specifying details of content it considered illegal."

DHS Planning to Monitor, Collect Social Media Information on All Immigrants to US

CircleID CircleID: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published a new rule under the Privacy Act of 1974 in the Federal Register last week, detailing how it intends to expand the information it collects when determining a person's immigration status to include social media handles and potentially even search histories. Newsweek reports: "[New requirement] is due to take effect on October 18 — the same day that immigration restrictions pronounced on Sunday by President Donald Trump on citizens of eight countries come into force. ... The move is the latest in what appears to be heightened levels of social media surveillance under the Trump administration. In May, the administration approved a new questionnaire that required visa applicants to input their social media handles for the past five years." The move has alarmed lawyers and privacy groups worried about how the information will be used. Adam Schwartz, an attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, told BuzzFeed, "[w]e see this as part of a larger process of high-tech surveillance of immigrants and more and more people being subjected to social media screening… This would also affect all US citizens who communicate with immigrants who could self-censor out of fear that information they exchange with someone overseas could be misconstrued and used against them."

Russia Demands Facebook to Store Citizens’ Data on Russian Servers or Be Blocked

CircleID CircleID: Russia threatens to block access to Facebook next year unless the company complies with a law that requires websites which store the personal data of Russian citizens to do so on Russian servers. Reuters reports: "The threat was made by Russia's communications watchdog Roskomnadzor, agencies said, the organization which blocked access to LinkedIn's website last November in order to comply with a court ruling that found the social networking firm guilty of violating the same data storage law. ... Twitter Inc had already notified Roskomnadzor that it would aim to localize the personal data of its users by the middle of 2018."
