China Is Deleting The Word 'Anonymous' From Its Internet System

Posting online anonymously will no longer be an option in China

China Is Deleting The Word \'Anonymous\' From Its Internet System

It seems that the Chinese government is not satisfy with its existing sovereignty over the Internet system in the country. On Aug 25th, the supreme internet regulator CAC (Cyberspace Administration of China) has updated the rule book by adding a new amendment in it. Now the anonymity on the internet will soon be vanished from China.

The government of China which is driven by the president Xi Jinping continues to overrule the internet freedom of the inhabitants by imposing new rules one by one. Under this new clause, no one can now hide their true identity while posting anything on the internet in China. All the tech giants including internet service providers are ordered to authenticate the true identity of their users. The ruling will be in effect from October 1st.

Following this amendment no internet user would be able to post anything without having an authenticated user ID. The authority further circulated the message stating, ‘the users who have not provided authenticated information regarding their identity won't be allowed to post any kind of content and the post may not materialize on the internet if found illegal by the regulators’.

According to the Chinese government, putting the restrictions on the activities of internet users is an act to demoralize the “false rumors, filthy language, and illegal content in the country”. When all the users are authenticated over the internet, it's easy to track down the users posting illegal content. Social media channels such as WeChat and Weibo are already operating under the strict guidelines of real-name registration rule which leave few places for anonymity in the Chinese internet.

In  the light of recently violated chinese act the government also asked tech giants to pull off the VPN services from the country. The authorities also conducted an investigation on the internet giants to find out if they allowed any kind of content that can impair the social order.

“ Prior to the 19th National Congress, sudden crackdown on the internet rights of the people in China is a part of the current ruling party scheme to confine the freedom of speech in the country,” critics said in China. Reportedly, the party also killed the social media accounts of the critics who can influence others as a potential detractors to the party.
