CHINESE INTERNET USERS MUST PASS A FACIAL-RECOGNITION TEST TO USE WEB

SOURCE: DAILYMAIL.CO.UK
China has stepped up its internet censorship by demanding its citizens pass a facial-recognition test to be able to use web services.

People who want to have the internet installed at home or on their phones must have their faces scanned by the Chinese authority to prove their identities, according to a new regulation.

The rule, which will take effect on December 1, is said to be part of the social credit system which rates the Chinese citizens based on their daily behaviour.

At present, a Chinese citizen will need to show his or her ID card while applying for a landline or the internet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you don't think this kind of draconian surveillance isn't coming to the US, just wait a year of so, if it takes that long.
